Is this the correct gear oil for my final drive?

Just want to confirm this is the right stuff. Looking at Scott's how to he recommends this I think. But this says it has "Limited slip additive". Is that what I want?

Napa says this is the superseded part number because of new squeeze package. Which may be very useful.

I am not a fan of synthetic oils. I use 80/90 hypoid gear oil in my final drive and change it with every oil change. Another thing to do is talk to a Honda dealership they can tell you what oil is best.
