Rear Differential Fluid?

I have an 01 F-350 7.3 cclb with electronic auto trans. It is a limited slip, but I am not sure of the type of axle. How can I tell? What is best fluid and do I have to add limited slip stuff to it? Thanks.

i used valvoline synthetic 75w-140. napa had it, kinda pricey at 12 bucks a quart...

and it came with additive already in it. so i didnt need to add any.
limited slip works like it should.

This may be a dumb question but do most or all superduties have a limited slip? Or was it an option and would the vin indicate it? Kelly
