generally you should replace in pairs just to keep the wear even but if cash is tight you can get away with replacing just the one. Welcome to RF!

I guess what is the spec on your rear end? Im guessing its Limited Slip. I always use Lucas products and have no complaints. Only thing Id do different would be spring for a synthetic oil next time.
