I have the 4.10 8.25 Trac Loc LSD diff so I first put in the Mopar Friction Modifier and then 2 L of Castrol 75W90 GL4 oil.

I made sure the diff mating surfaces were clean and applied the Permatex Gray as specified and there are no leaks.

We always used Permatex gasket maker at work on the diffs we did. Never had an issue. There are a lot of different products that will work. If these guys say the gray works for them I would not hesitate to go with that.
