No reason for a 2WD vehicle to have a front diff

No, the noise will not go away with a different fluid or additive. You have a problem more than likely with a bearing or possibly gears. Without knowing more info or hearing it in person you are going to have to take steps to eliminate/find the culprit. I'm talking about bearings in the rear axle ( axle/wheel bearings, differential side bearings, pinion bearings, then possibly a problems with the spider gears or ring/pinion gears.
