Yes, or a bottle of the stinky additive from a parts store.(needed for the clutch pack)

The TT axle uses standard SAE 90 hypoid axle lube. The stinky limited slip additive is available at any real auto parts store, or from any GM dealer, part number 1052271.

All current synthetic oils and most dino oils are designed for all of the different positractions on the road now. Including the Dana clutch type.

So no, as long as you get a brand oil. Just read the lube label for recomndations.

I respectfully disagree, synthetics maybe but dino oil still needs the additive.

Ted H. told me he ran Redline Heavy Shockproof, that was good enough for me. I have a good opinion of Redline products anyway since running MT-90 in my old FWD Volkswagen transmissions. Since it's only a couple quarts, I don't mind spending the ducats.
