    Update on this thread. During my trip to Texas in July with the camper this problem cropped up again.

    I added another bottle of the friction modifier and it subsisted.

    900 miles later it’s starting to do it again. I’m at 13000 miles since the fluid change in January, so I am getting close to the 15k mark which I believe is the time to change.

    I’ve done some reading and my dad is a preferred member of amsoil, so I’m just ordered some to give them a shot. If that doesn’t work, I’ll try out the Lucas that was recommended here.

    Just an update, It has been 1 year since I switched from the mobil (which is supposed to be for limited slip diffs) with added friction modifier, too the Amsoil super extreme blah blah differential fluid. I am at roughly 14000 miles since the change and haven't had any reoccurrence of my previous vibration / chatter issue.

    I'm not going to lie I always was an extreme skeptic of oil branding, but it appears this fluid has something extra.
    YMMV

    Amsoil has a great rep. What exact product did you end up going with, and what was the weight listed on the package?

    This is the stuff I got. Bought a case of it in the hopes I would be happy with it. Debating if I'm going to change at 15K, or keep running.

    @shoe07 what's the capacity of the rear diff, I can't remember? Will 2 quarts get it? I'm having the exact same issue that you described when making turns from a stop. I put the Lucas heavy duty that everyone recommends but it still gave me issues. Added some LS additive and it helped for a few weeks. Going to try the Amsoil after hearing of the success you had.

    That sounds about right. Definitely more than 3

    I started getting a "thump" in my drive system about 50 miles back when making a left turn from a stop - while turning. The "thump" started getting worse. I have been changing my diff oil every 50k miles.
    Inspecting my drive system from underneath I found my driveshaft carrier bearing's boot was worn out and had about ³/⁴" of slop. Replaced the carrier bearing and all three universal joints, after all it's been 345k miles. Didn't fix the problem.
    Pulled the differential drain plug and a chunk of gear and a bunch of metal shavings was on the plug's magnet, and a bunch of shavings came out with the oil. Ugh. So pulling my diff to see if I can repair it. I understand replacement gears can be hard to find and/or quite expensive. Might have to do the junkyard crawl as a last resort.
