Well the wife and I bought a BA traysman ute abit over a year ago. Well as hard as I try I have been unable to get the thing to bag up in a straight line. It just grips and goes frignn hard, even on wet concrete. Now I jacked the back up and turned the whells and they both turned in the same direction does this mean LSD. Now we bought it and didnt opt for the LSD, but then again we didnt opt the air con and got that free, opted for the starndard tow bar and got the heavey duty for the same price and we opted for the heavy duty tray and was told that it would cost an extra 350 and he forgot to add it to the price, so it wouldn't suprise me if the dealer missed this too.

The LSD's will say so on the diff itself (a tag on the filler plug).

As far as I remember it was still an option on the tradesman, for I think it was $1500 extra on a XL price and you got standard tray and alloys, AC was about $2500 extra, tow bar 1600kg $375, but they gave us the heavy duty tow bar with load leveling worth $1500, the heavy duty tray which is 2400x1250mm clear in clear inside worth $1350 got that for free and now the LSD worth $470 free, than the missus claimed GST on the ute as she was using it as a courior and got a s**t load of of tax back from the gov. best deal we have ever done :D

go to the closest car park, turn the wheel to full lock, plant it. you'll soon know if its lsd or not. if its a s/s it will go in a big circle, with one wheel goin nuts, if its LSD, you'll be wippin around a treat :D
