Hi, Does anyone in this group have access to the DC computer that can send me a "Build Sheet" for my Dakota if I send them the VIN? TIA, Tom R

I finally got the local Chrysler dealer to print me out one so I don't need the complete print out, but I'm still trying to find out if I have a limited slip rear end, I can't read the tag on it. The build sheet says it is a "DRBP Corporate 9.25 LD Rear Axle", is this the one that needs the special grease and additive? TIA, Tom

Thanks Mike, I don't see anything about LSA on the build sheet so I guess that means I don't need the special additive.

the rear wheels off of the ground, put the vehicle in neutral, and try and turn the rear wheel that you jacked up. If it turns easily along with the driveshaft, then it is an open rear. If it will not turn or turns with extreme force, then you have a limited slip. If it turns with only some difficulty, then it is a somewhat worn limited slip. Open rears do not need the additive.

Thanks, I thought I remembered that was how you did it, but it has been quite awhile since I've messed with one that might have a locking rear end so thought I better check. TR

One more question, how much grease and what do you recommend? I tow a 3500 LB, 17 ft trailer, once in awhile. The rest of the time I drive it 20 miles a day, back and forth to work. TIA, Tom

What exactly do you mean by grease?

Guess I should have said Gear oil instead of grease. Gear Oil: 75W90 Synthetic or Gear Oil: 75W140 Synthetic I know it needs to be GL5 specs, but don't know how much to buy. Thanks for the reply. Tom R

That information should be listed under capacities in your owner's manual.
