I have not had the noise, but have previously owned cars with NOISEY diffs (the GT3 for one). This is a "normal" noise. Most diffs with higher lock-ups will make some noise, its the nature of the beast.

I am with Radiation Joe on this one. I would not add a modifier to reduce the noise. IMHO, you are retarding the effectiveness of the clutches....and thus, the overall performance thereof. Personally, I would live with the noise.

Now, for people that are basically city drivers that do not track, etc., it is really a moot point as you wont notice a reduction in lock-up in most cases. So, if that is the case, and you dont like the noise, go ahead and add it. Either way, the diff will still be under warranty.
