Fairmonts dont come with an LSD standard - It could have been optioned.
If it was a ghia they came with LSD factory

not std but option.

simple, jack car up at diff (both wheels off ground), one mate hold one wheel tight (handbrake off) and you try spin your wheel. if it spins single, doesnt lsd.

Thats not the best way because if the LSD is totally rooted it will still spin.

Just turn the wheel on one side and look at what way the other side spins. If they both turn the same way is LSD, if the turn in opposite directions its open wheeler.

Could still be a single spinner, they can spin both wheels sometimes.

so you spin the back wheel forward and the other will go backwards? does it do that on the road, I don't think I understand.

when u jack the car up so wheels are off the groud, and put it in neutral (with handbrake off) if you spin one rear wheel and the other one spins in the opposite direction you have a single spinner, if when you spin it the other goes in the same direction its an LSD...there's a technical explanation but im wayyy to lazy to write it lol....do a search on google
