    just do the 30min break in doing the figure 8 and then let it rest and drive it again and check if there is alot of noise left if there is still some of the noise just repeat proccess until no more sounds

      Here is the proper break-in procedure.
      Use regular petrolium based gear oil 80w90 GL5
      specification. Something you could buy at local
      store like Castrol or Penzoil. Just make sure the
      label says applicable for lsd use.
      Do the figure 8 with this cheap oil for 30 minutes.
      Do this in first gear at comfortable speed (10mph).
      Make sure you disengage the gear when turning.
      (Push the clutch pedal down)
      After you are done, drain the oil and replace with
      Kaaz oil or other high quality gear oil. Never use
      synthetic type oil.
      If you get dizzy while break-in, you can rest and
      continue. Don't eat anything prior to this either.
      For additional information, please email us or call

          Looking at the car from the rear, the filler plug is located
          on you left side. Normally requires a long socket extention
          (about 16 inches long) half inch size to remove the plug.
          If you have a wrench and socket that fits more closer
          and the exhaust doesn't interfere, that will be ideal.
          Otherwise the use of long extention inserted from the
          left side wheel suspension arm area is the only way.
