    As far as I been reading the boards of many forums there hasn't been any, in recent postings, that have suggested any other additives for a fine running differential. There has been suggestions for additives when people have some diff problems but most people can't agree on one specific product.Check your E-mail for an off-roading partner when you go to Ottawa.Archie

    I use ER

    I just did my diff's and transfer case I used ER in them. I've used it in my Dodge Diesel with good results, many people swear by it. I don't use it in the tranny or engine but they say you can, don't use it in LS diff's.

    Thanks, The only reason I asked is because I called my Toyota dealer and it took 4 people and 30 min. for someone to tell me they dont know. So.. thanks for the help.
