    I know this has been beaten in the ground but I am planning on changing on changing the Diff Bearing in my truck this weekend with the ECGS Bushing. I figure I will pull the trigger on the fluids in both Diff's. I would like to use the Toyota OEM stuff but even at Amazon it's $30 plus bucks a quart. And the Mobil 1 is half that.

    My question is does the Mobil have the correct additive...for the LSD?

    Do I need the additive for a 2013?

    The Mobil 1 has "LS" (Limited Slip) on the bottle.

    You are fine using it your 2013. Just changed mine last weekend.
