A couple of months ago, I changed out the front and rear differential oil. I used the recommended spec, sealed it back up, and... done.
Until today. I changed all of the brake rotors and drums, and while I was adjusting the shoes in the back, I noticed that when I spun one wheel, they both turned in the same direction.
Having worked on a few old Broncos I used to own... this strikes me as odd. I was pretty sure they were supposed to turn in opposite directions. So, I start thinking about it and... lo and behold I clear enough dirt away to find the little tag on the bottom that says USE LIMITED SLIP DIFF LUBE ONLY.
I'm an idiot, btw.
At this point, I know the obvious is probably to pump it out again and refill it with the correct lube, but, two questions for anyone who knows:
1.) Have I done any major damage running it that way for a few months? If so, what do I look for and what might I need to do to fix it? For what it's worth, I haven't actually 'noticed' any ill effects...but I'm not even sure how they would manifest honestly.
2.) Anyone here have an easily available reccomendation for the LSD rear diff lube?
You guys usually have the right answers to this kind of thing and have been a great resource and knowledge base, so I figured I'd throw this out there. As always, any help greatly appreciated.
