Do I have an LSD?

I don't suppose there's a way to tell if I have an aftermarket LSD from outside the trans...


I bought the car used but it has aftermarket coil overs, a fabricated exhaust (and seems decently tuned... but I haven't logged AFR's or anything... just going on sound/feel so far) and an IPD intake so at least some parts are done right...


It does have 19" wheels and the stock air filter though... so maybe the old owner didn't know about LSD's after all .

I believe.
Find the serial number on the transmission.
Digit #6 is a 2
Or Accessory code M224

that's for oem. if aftermarket there's a test involving getting the rear end off the ground and spinning one wheel by hand. if the other also spins or doesn't spin or spins in the opposite direction or something (can't recall - you'll have to goggle it) then you have or don't have an lsd.

If the rear end is up on a jack and wheels spin in opposite direction, no LSD.
