Hi all!

just wanted to ask, what would happen to your LSD g/box if normal g/box oil was to be put in??
LSD g/box must use that special g/box oil rite...

If you got an LSD you should use LSD gear lub and it is quite common to find it in the market...

Always keep to the spec so you will have less worry and less payment to be made :P

I'm using LSD, and using normal gbox oil. Got that creaking sound when turning. Does this mean that if i change to LSD the noise will go away. Anyway, i check at the local shop, they are selling Castrol LSX, is it the LSD oil.

how long gear oil n LSD oil should be change?
Depends really on your application. You can be really anal about it and change out every year like i do or be like others and never change it.
