Id run it tighter than the rear, give you a semi-spool type action.

Beware though tighter it runs it puts flat spots on the balls

I have always built my diffs so that they just slip when the spur gear and one wheel are held still while trying to turn the other wheel.  When I used to run diffs both front and rear, I always had the front one slightly tighter than the rear.
