Well, basically I want to change the front and rear axle fluid myself and I have a problem. My owner's manual says to use 75W-90 API-GL5 fluid, but it also says models equipped with trac-Lok require an additive. I don't know if I have trac Lok. I have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4 5.2L v8 with Quad Trac All-time 4 wheel drive. The Jeep has about 110,000 miles.

you also have the option of just putting in synthetic lubricant , better for the gears and you don't have to worry about a limited slip additive .
