    Time to give the old horse another flogging!

    My ride - 09 TRD Sport with LSD

    To recap my Tacomaworld learnings so far:

    - 08 and earlier LSD: get friction modifier
    - 09 and later: electronic LSD, no friction modifier needed

    Question - will the widely available 75W-90 be alright vs. the specified 75W-85?

    I've ordered 6 qts of Amsoil 75W-90 Severe Gear and plan to do the front/rear diffs and transfer case.

    Apologies if this has been answered, but I didn't see a thread specifically about this question - might have missed it.
