    Been to 4 auto parts stores and the only full syn 75w90 I can find is labeled Limited Slip. Is it OK to run the LS additive in a reg diif?

    You've just described the last two days of my life! Hunted everywhere for Valvoline full synthetic, couldn't find it anywhere. Broke down an got Mobil1 75W-90 LS. Read on here it would be ok in everything.

    I paid 10.99 a quart, saw it somewhere else for 9.99 but was sick of driving and had shit to do.
