if your real keen you could use some kerosene with a wash gun. otherwise change the oil now and then do it again in a few months. just use good oil designed for LSD use.

If the LSD is worn then no amount of good oil will fix it

LSD oils are different to the single spinner diff oil, has more products mixed in and is more thicker also more heavy duty so it wont break down in no time

hey mate, im prob not the best one to answer, but my mates used to tip thinners or kero in teh diff centre so there is a far bit and give it a good scrab. to get the kero out jack teh car up to one side with the axle out.
as for oils, im guessing you have an LSD. there is special oils to use for these, which they sell at most places. )autobarn etc) and with my diff i also bought an additave which was recomended by the suplier. cost about 60 bux from holden but i was told is well worth it
