Re: Where to buy?? Mopar diff fluid/additive

I can get you the Amsoil Severe Gear for $13.00 per qt or cheaper (plus UPS) & it does not need a friction modifier additive. Amsoil includes it in the oil when they produce it. That way it is ready to go for both applications, LSD & non LSD.

shoot me an email if you need some more info. gabe@syntheticlubestore.com

Re: Where to buy?? Mopar diff fluid/additive

See I wouldn't trust NOT adding in the additive.. that's just me and my superstitions. Why would they add it in when some axles don't need it in the first place? It's like shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle. There's a reason why they're sold separately (bad analogy) because each by itself serves a purpose. Please tell me why I'm wrong

And Frank I know I need to get one but every time I think about it I can't justify the $80+ .. but it would pay for itself fairly quickly so on the flip side, no excuses.

Re: Where to buy?? Mopar diff fluid/additive

I agree with you that you need the additive separate. M1 comes with LSD additive in it as well, but it is known that the diffs will bind if you don't add the MOPAR additive.

I'm the one on the left, I don't understand the shampoo thing either!!!!


AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR® is compatible with most limited slip differentials. If limited slip differential chatter occurs, add AMSOIL Slip-Lock™ friction modifier additive.
Amsoil formulated the severe gear fluids with performance vehicles in mind. Just picture a guy standing in the bottling line and dumping the additive in each bottle as they go past. It's the same as you pouring it in the diff when you change fluid.
Amsoil offers slip lock, which is their additive, IF chatter occurs. I still have the same 2 bottles I bought about years ago when I made my original stock order. I have never sold them! Nobody has come back to me & said that they are having diff chatter after putting in the Severe Gear fluids. Even then, it is less than $6 (JGO price through me) per 4 ounce bottle, which is still way better than buying the dealer fluid.

that can be crossed too!!!!

It has a Mobilfluid 424 spec, Amsoil ATH works well in that tcase as well as the 245 & 249.

Mopar is not a fluid company, they simply have it bottled for them.

No problem. I'm not a pusher of the products, like most. I do have quite a bit of lubricant knowledge & I'm glad to share what I know. It just seems like Amsoil products come to the top when the research is done. I happen to sell it as a result.

I know. I searched and searched and searched and could not find an alternative. I wish i would have heard that a few months ago. How much is that T case fluid? PM me if you need too.

I think mine charged me roughly $14 a quart. It was $28 bucks IIRC for 2 quarts.
