    I have an 07 Tacoma, 4x2 Pre-Runner Double cab and I'm currently at 50k miles and think it's time to change my gear oil. The problem is I don't know if I have a limited slip or not and I know the LS requires additive.

    I've looked in the owner's manual and it tells me to use GL-5 for non Limited slip diffs and GL-5 for Limited Slips FOR Limited slip diffs.

    I looked on the actual differential for any markings and don't see anything relevant. Any info is appreciated.

    If you have an LS diff, you should see a sticker that says "LS Diff oil only"
