Default does front diff. need limited slip additive?

Hi, I recently changed the rear differential fluid in my 98 Dakota 4x4 and put limited slip additive in it, my question is does the front axle require the additive?

No the front is not an LSD differential.

Only the rear.

Chevy limited-slip diffs use an additive, as does any clutch-type limited-slip I'm aware of. Don't be surprised if you find your clutches in little pieces one day.

+1. ANY LSD should have the additive. It does not vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.
