    Any time you can switch to a full /100% synthetic fluid. Oil, gear, Trans, etc. Always do it. And keep in mind. Use the recommended viscosity the manufacturer says to use. It is not recommended you jump up to the next viscosity. I've always used full synthetics in my vehicles for years. Including my Motorcycles. And never an issue.

    Yes, but op is correct. Synthetic gear oil is not good with a lsd.

    Agreed. I saw that. Not with an lsd. Didn't think I had to mention it since it was already mentioned by OP. It's all good.

    My bad amigo at first read sounded like it was a flat 100% full synthetic on everything no ifs and or buts.
