    Just changed diff. fluid, and used Hypoid gear oil API GL-5 "plus" 80w-90, the "plus" indicates limited slip suitability (as per the jug). I don't have a LSD (that I'm aware of...pretty sure it's open with a locker -- 03 TRD Off-Road Pre).

    Anyway...what will (or could) happen as a consequence of using the aforementioned LSD suitable fluid?

    Fluid brand: Sta-Lube.

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    It should be fine. I used Mobil1 75W-90 LS in my TRD Off Road and there haven't been any problems. Locker function still works without a hitch.

    Yep should be ok :) its bad if the other way around, if you use non lsd oil in a lsd rear-end. Most lsd oil is just regular gear oil has additives that allow the clutch packs function correctly in the LSD. You can even buy lsd oil additive for regular oil. As long as you have the right weight oil in there you should be good to go :)
