I tried additives and over the counter gear oil but would get a clutch chatter after some highway driving. Then I took off the cover, again, flushed and then refilled with Redline differential oil. All chattering disappeared, no extra additives needed.

None. You can use the additive, but its not necessary. Use Sta-Lube GL-5 rating with limited slip additive. I don't remeber how much you are supposed to use, but the stuff we used to use was in a small tube and we put the whole thing in. Then there is the stuff that Bige mentioned. Was that synthetic? You could go that route but its much more expensive.

Dan,
I second Ernie's recommendation on the Red Line product. Been usin' it in the car below for many years without any problems. Yes it is a synthetic fluid as opposed to just an additive. Just completely drain your diff removing the cover. You might want to jack up the front of the car higher than the rear to ensure all of the old fluid and sediment will drain out. Should not need "flushing", just drain over night. Install new cover gasket and fill with Redline Diff lube. Also while you're there, check the vent hole on the rear face of the left axle tube aprox. 3 to 4" inboard of the spring perch. Very small hole, IIRC,7/32". Drill bit works great. Hope this helps:)

How would the Red Line work on a non-TT rear?

As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

The red line synthetic will work for all rear ends, TT or no TT.
