04 Rearend Fluid

Hi all. I have a 04 SD with LS and it recently hit 100K miles. I wanted to change the fluid in it but I keep hearing I need to add friction modifier to the oil. I've been reading up on it and some people say not to add it unless you need it. I was going to use either Mobil1 or Motorcraft 75w-140 for the change. Thank you in advance for your opinions and help!

You have to add it unless the oil you use already has an additive in it.

Motorcraft doesn't because you have to buy the friction modifier separate. I think Royal Purple does and Valvoline has a synthetic gear oil that does. It should say in the bottle if it already has additives.
