Pull off the back cover and check. It may have a snapped axle, or stuffed cones?

install it, do a big burnout, and if both wheels spin then its a lsd, if it dont, take it back and give him a biff for lying to you.

Turn one axle and if the other one turns in the same direction it is LSD if it turns the otherway its non LSD if it doesnt turn then one axle is broken.

the tag on the diff will have LSD HIGH PERFORMANCE stamped on it. (but of course that's not 100% as the tag may have been removed).

HOLD ONE AXEL AND GET SOMEONE TO TRY AND TURN THE OTHER AXEL, IF THEY WONT TURN THEN ITS A LSD, BUT IF ONE DOES THEN U MAY HAVE A BASIC DIFF.

Ooh ooh oooh!! i know this one! i know this one!!!

Turn one wheel one way and if the other wheel spins with it, then its an LSD.
But if it spins the other way, it's not an LSD.
