WIS and AllData are a little confusing. They mention two different part numbers; one for LSD's and the other without. I was always under the impression that LSD was not an option.

Any insight?

I am showing A 000 289 28 03 (MB Hypoid Gear Oil 85W90) as the correct oil for my unmodified diff. Can anyone confirm?

That's correct. Some say even the 75w85 is okay. Fluids are confusing, don't get too caught up trying to make sense of it all. Too many options.

ZAYED,,
What diff are you using? LSD or open? I'm assuming you're talking about your M113 powered W202, correct?

Schweinhund - That was my impression as well. Was it ever an option? Just wondering why WIS lists an oil p/n for an LSD equipped diff.
