    I have another quick question. How full should the rear diff. be? I filled mine to the bottom of the fill hole and it didn't hardly hold the full three quarts.

    The manual says 3 quarts, but mine wouldnt hold it, maybe because i added the lsd additive.

    Do I need lsd additive/friction modifier for my 2010 Sport? I think that is only for a mechanical lsd.
