Will Ford/motorcraft friction modifier work?

I recently bought a 5.9 and I'm changing everything. There is no Chrysler dealer in my town so I was going to use motorcraft gear oil and friction mod if its pretty much the same. Anyone know?

Your best bet is to use a 75-140 synthetic gear lube. It already has the limited slip additive in it.
