I was wondering if there is a way of telling if a diff is a lsd by looking at the serial number and what type it would be

eurotuner just had a project up. They said their should be an "s" stamped on the case. If there is, that should be Limited Slip. Also, jack the ass end up and turn one wheel. If the other turns the other way, it's LS. I think...i'll check and try to post tommorrow.

R.I.P fast 6


Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

if rotates the same way its LSD.... opposite is open.
just make sure both wheels are in the air, its really bad for an LSD to turn one wheel and not the other

how is that bad? it does it every time you turn a corner.... one wheel will spin more then the other one, which in theory should be the same as holding one and spinning it a little bit should it not? no offence or anything

i dont know if that is too bad for it, but yes the rear wheels should spin in the same direction when one is spun in order for it to be a LSD. what kind of car is this to make you think it has an LSD?
