Do i need friction modifier?

I'm changing out my rear diff fluid and I'm using Lucas 75w140 Synthetic. It says on the bottle that I don't need any additives. I've also heard if you use synthetic lube you don't need to use it. Anyone care to enlighten me?

This is correct. If it says you don't need additives then you wont need them

dmalmgre,
I'm getting ready to do mine also...got a new Oasis diff cover with magnetic drain and fill plug and a "Lube Locker" gasket. I'm gonna run the Mobil 1 75-140 synthetic. Are you going to clean the inside with non-chlorinated brake cleaner? Let me know how it goes.

I used royal purple and it already had the additive in it. There is a few guys on here that says thats bad when it already has it, but it works for me.

With an '03 your clutches are probably toasted anyway, so they won't be grabbing much. If you do notice them grabbing in corners add 2oz modifier at a time until it goes away, add too much and your LS is worthless (stock one is anyway).
