If it has ,you CANNOT use ordinary Hipoid oil in the diff.
Check the cars option plate ( in front of the radiator,it's a small oblong plate with numbers stamped into it) .Generally it will be stamped as "211" or "256",
If those numbers appear on the plate then you a W115 with LSD,not uncommon in Europe where the snow and ice made it neccesary for taxis to have this option. As your car is a US car ,the number will appear because it would have to have been ordered especially with it.( IF it does indeed have the LSD)
Buy the special oil from a Mercedes parts dealer,no one else has it.
