2010 DCLB TRD Sport Rear Diff Fluid

So i've read the how-to threads on changing the rear diff and was all set to change mine out with Mobil 1 75 w 90 and with the LSD additive (since i have a sport) and then i've been reading posts from as recent as last month saying only 2005-2008 Sport models need the LSD additive? Also, i had read some complaints about using Mobil 1 oil...

Anyone know what's up with these comments? I returned the oil and additive until i get some clarification. I'm at 29,850 miles so i'm doing it pretty much as soon as i get a clear answer. Thanks in advance!

You have an E-LSD meaning the LSD action is control via the brakes and therefore no clutch packs. (Layman's terms = it's an open differential).

You don't need the additive and I would recommend Mobil 1.

From what I understand the additive won't hurt anything even if you don't need it, so you can probably go either way. FWIW, I used Redline 75w90 which has the additive mixed in. Haven't had any problems.

As mentioned above, you have an E-LSD, not the mechanical type. Mobile 1 will work fine in your case and you won't need an LSD additive. Mobile 1 (and certain other synthetics), even with the LSD additive, seems to cause chatter in the mechanical LSDs. Using the Redline Synthetic with the LSD additive won't hurt your differential.
