Have recently purchased VX LSD to replace my standard diff.
Before i start fitting it, can anyone give any advice or tips on what oils are best to use, will i need the additive, whats up with this allignment thing?

Have been reading a few other threads but haven't been able to get enough information.

i had to put the additive in mine to stop the shudder at low speed/reverese(got from bursons) , and just lined it all up to all the old marks from old diff... 3 years later its still ok ;)

also the top bolts are sooo bloody tight, so get a big mother ###er breaker bar or rattle gun with lots of bendy bits..
