So I added 1 oz at a time and after the entire 4 oz Motorcraft bottle everything seemed back to normal. However it has gotten worst back to the hopping feeling when you crank the wheel had to one direction and stand on it. I don't know what to do, drain it and re fill it or just let it roll.
Add some more friction modifier. One ounce at a time until the chatter stops. Give it a hundred miles or so between adding more. You need to find the balance of just the right amount of modifier. Too little and you get chatter, too much and the limited slip will not operate properly. Nowhere does it say to only add 4 ounces to Mobil1, that is the standard additive mixture for the Motorcraft synthetic diff lube. If you use any other fluid you may need more or less, depending on the formulation.
Although, I have never heard of having to add any modifier to Mobil1, ever. You might have a clutch-pack issue where it has worn out.
Did you change the spring or restack the clutches?
