Now got another small issue. I was towing a car on my trailer and noticed when turning sharp left or right, feels like my rearend is grabbing, if that makes sense. I put about 3.5 quarts valvoline 75w140 and 8 oz of friction modifier in it. Any ideas?

I had to go back to the Ford diff oil for mine to stop chattering. Still does it a little but nothing like when I was running any other diff oil. Not sure why it is special.

It feels like I need friction modifier added but I put In 8 oz.

I used stuff called lube gard. It's in a white bottle with red cap.

I used the red bottle right from Ford, no modifier needed.

How do you test the rear wheel bearings? My truck has that "grabbing" feeling sometimes.

Mine would do that when towing. She finally blew one day.
