Front diff question

I am looking at changing my fluid in the front diff. The manual says 80w-90. Some people say to add friction additive, but I believe that's just for the rear. I found some valvoline 80w-90. It said limited slip on bottle, is that good stuff? What are y'all using. Thanks in advance

Friction modifier is used in the Limited Slip differentials. Since no Limited Slip Differential was ever put on the front of a Super Duty from the factory, use 80W90 gear oil. No friction modifier necessary.
