There are a couple of ways that I know of to check for a LSD. The first one is to jack up the rear end, place the tranny in neutral then spin one of the rear tires. If the wheels spin in opposite directions then you do NOT have a LSD, if they spin in the same direction then you DO have a LSD.

Another method is actually easier, a lot more fun, but also probably not as accurate. (I'm sure that someone will jump in and correct me if I'm wrong here). Find yourself a dirt road somewhere, or even a stretch of non dirt road that has some dirt on it. Make sure that both of your rear tires are securely in the dirt. Stomp the gas pedal to the floor, holding it there for a few seconds. This should cause your rear tires to break loose. After going for a few feet come to a gentle stop, then walk back and inspect the skid marks (or the holes that you may have dug in the dirt). If there is one hole/ skid mark then you do NOT have a LSD, if there are two holes/ skid marks then you probably DO have a LSD.

You could also get a build sheet from your dealer. That should tell you as well.

good luck
