Friction Modified is a must in the transmission, and in the rear diff trust me. Go to Ford Dealership, there was a TSB and people were actually sitting back watching their rear ends fall the fuck apart from not using it, and the transmission were having a hard jerk issue for along time till they brought out that TSB.
