I jacked up the back of the car and spun the driver side wheel and the other side turned in the same direction which means it's an LSD.
I then looked underneath at the tag and it said STD and in bigger letters 14AA. What does this mean? I thought it was meant to say LSD if it was?
Also, sometimes both wheels spin, sometimes just the right and sometimes just the left. (Don't flame, they were done in safe and controlled conditions :D).

Well then what's mine? Both spin the same way but the tag has STD on it and I can't see LSD printed anywhere. What's STD meant to stand for?

Yeah I've been thinking that STD stands for a standard diff but when turning the wheels they both turn in the same direction? If I had a single spinner and it was worn then it would just slip and the other wheel wouldn't even turn.
So how come they're both turning the same way if I possibly have a standard diff?

Funny you say that because I was just talking to a mate and he suggested the same thing. It could be true I'm not sure.
How does an LSD behave when turning? Because sometimes I get my left wheel spinning, sometimes right wheel and sometimes both? Is that how an LSD works?
And do single spinners only ever spin the right when turning?
Why's my diff so damn confusing lol.

With both wheels off the ground an LSD will turn both wheels the same way.
With one wheel off the ground you can't turn the wheel on an LSD.

If your sometimes turns both the same way and at other times opposite then maybe your cones are worn out???

I mean sometimes left, sometimes right and sometimes both when I lose traction not when it's jacked up. When it's jacked up always turns both same direction.
Also I was thinking maybe getting 3.70 or 3.90 ratio for a quicker acceleration. What other benefits will I get with this and what will I lose in (high end acceleration etc.)? And is it as simple as just switching out the gears? Will other work need to be done?
