lucas in t-case?

Anyone out there use lucas in there t-case to eliminate noise, i have this clicking when i go from park to drive or reverse to drive, i took the case apart to search for the noise and came out empty handed, however it is a rough country sye and there is minor play between the output shaft and the gears so maybe lucas would quiet this noise down a little?

I pinpointed the noise with a mechanics stethoscope but there is a poping noise when i step on the gas i believe this is the cardan joint as it does not pop when its in 4wd and the driveshaft is out of the rear

So long as you're using Lucas ATF, no problem. Our chain-driven transfer cases require ATF, not gear lube.

No I'm not a Lucas fan. It's just another good quality gear lube but one that is more expensive than other equally good lubricants like from Valvoline... who is just one of many high quality lubricant manufacturers with a stellar reputation.

I noticed the atf4 is verry thin, thats thy i was thinking the lucas would help if its anything like the engine oil aditive thats verry thick

Is it as thick? if so whats the ratio i should use, on the bottle there is no directions for use in a transfer case and the pickup for the oil pump has some very small holes so i dont want to make it too thick and starve it of oil

Stop trying to be a petroleum engineer by second-guessing what lubricant the t-case works properly with. If there is unwanted play between the output shaft and gears that shouldn't be there, fix it... don't try to fix a mechanical issue with some self-designed lubricant concoction. Contact Rough Country and get their help on figuring out what the real problem is.
