Oil additive

How much improvement has been noticed when y’all are using the additive WS2 in your tyranny’s?

If it doesn’t fit don’t force it, get a bigger HAMMER

In my 2014 gearbox and rear end, no difference at all. Commanders will always be too loud to have a conversation in.

I have an 11 with the straight cut gears in the rear diff. Between 25-30mph it begins to sound like a jet engine (or it did). The ws2 dulled that noise - it’s still loud but not as much and it’s not as piercing of a noise. Maybe a 10-15% reduction or so.

Maybe due to the fact I added it in at the 10 hr service and may not have really been broken in yet but shortly there after I DID notice the difference in noise level, my proof was the first stereo I installed DID NOT ROCK lol...and I could not even listen to it when driving the rig. Just my experience.

The addition of WS-2 should include using Red Line "HEAVY SHOCK DIFF & TRANNY FLUID"
Not to be used in Visco lock front diff.

It can go in the front, the visco unit is sealed inside and does not share the diff oil.

The visco fluid is separated from the gear oil . But not sure the clutch pack / friction disc’s are. Been a while sense I had one apart .

The last tranny I had gave up the ghost in my belief because of a hard life and “additives” as you call them. RIP. I loved you.

I may have to grow old, but you can't make me grow up!
