The question has been asked before no doubt.

Can the same type of oil be used in front / rear diffs (LSD at rear standard front). The oil in my rear is normal oil colour, however the front is a realy dark green silvery colour. Normal????

Yes. You can use LSD oil in the front diff.

The front diff oil is that colour because the front axle oil seals are becoming worn and the black grease from the swivel hubs is getting in. You may also find that the swivel hub grease is getting more liquid from the diff oil leaking out.

Sooner or later, you need to have the front end serviced and seals replaced.

Hey Treading Lightly,

Being a LC100 owner myself, I would be interested in knowing how may kilometers you have done in your 'cruiser. It might give me an indication of when to expect replacing the seals in my own truck.

Thanks

Hi Hatche,

We would you believe I have only covered 43K, although the LC100 is a 99 model. Not a lot of work you would agree.
