Changed oil in front and rear differentials for first time. Used Lube Lockers which appear to have successfully locked in my lube.

Oil that came out from the rear had a greenish tinge to it. Def a different color than the front. Is there an LSD additive or oil that is green?

Was going to replace front lower control arms on the TJ today - sprayed the bolts down with Kroil last night...  None of 3 out of the 4 bolts budged with a breaker bar...  The 1 that budged was loose and I could turn the whole bolt with a wrench on both sides inside the bushing  :eek:  It took two 3 ft breaker bars to tighten that one back down...   Gave up to tackle it another day or pay my local shop an hour labor fee to be done with it  :wink:

Do you have a limited slip Diff?   If so, yes unless you used Royal Purple gear oil.

Yes. It's a limited slip. I did a lot of reading about additives for limited slip already being in oils or not and didn't get a lot of clarity on it. I used Castrol this time that said limited slip on the bottle but didn't provide any more information. But so far not clear on if it has additive or enough in it.

Just bought a new aluminum radiator and transmission cooler.  Hoping to have them installed before the Mt Washington trip.  Culturing it a little close since I won't be able to work on it until Monday but I hope it should be ok   Maybe a late night or two
