They will act more like a locker than a LS. Those are designed for racing use, so they are going to be tighter than what yours was originally.

What are you using your truck for? If you are going for better off-road capabilities, then get a locker. If you just on the street, then I would probably just get the regular clutch packs

Some synth oil will have additives already in it. Royal Purples is a good example. But if you are just using the regular gear oil, you HAVE to put friction modifier in it. Unless you want to wear them out in 1000mi.

They may be tighter, but they will also last longer than the stock ones.
