    Ok, changing the rear diff fluid is easy, I understand that! Now I need help with one thing. The oil.

    I have a 2010 TRD Sport/long bed

    I bought 3 quartz redline 75-90
    and 4oz LSD additive

    I don't understand if I need to put in the LSD additive because the Redline gear oil claims to have it in it's oil already? Im so confused, a little help would be nice thank you :)

    Your 2010 should have A-LSD not a mechanical LSD so no additive is needed. LSD additive is so the oil doesn't ruin the clutchpacks in a mechanical LSD.
