Friction-Modified Automotive Gear Lubricant

Kendall® Special Limited-Slip Gear Lubricant is an extreme-pressure, API GL-5, SAE 80W-90 automotive gear oil specially formulated to satisfy the lubrication needs of most limited-slip rear axles. It is friction-modified to help eliminate the stick-slip chatter associated with low-speed, high-torque operation of limited-slip differentials while turning corners with some passenger cars and light trucks.


Features & Benefits

  • Excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability to minimize sludge and varnish formation
  • Excellent thermal durability and extreme-pressure properties for extended gear life
  • High load-carrying capacity for protection against scuffing and wear
  • Protects against rust and corrosion
  • Good foam resistance
  • Friction-modified to prevent chatter in limited-slip and positraction differentials


  • Passenger car and truck axles with either conventional or limited-slip differentials
  • Suitable for initial fill of new or rebuilt limited-slip differentials, for top-off, and for refill after a complete drain
