Spinning 2 wheels in the wet doesnt mean lsd, my single spinner did it in the wet too, but god knows going around corners in the dry that it wasnt an lsd!
In wet lsd doesnt just spin, it fish tails n slides around a hell of a lot more than 2 spinning wheels of a single spinner. :roll:

Futura's didn't come standard with LSD, but an LSD could be optioned for them. There is 2 or 3 ways to check, have a look at the tag on the diff filler, there may be an LSD or 'High Performance' tag, on the drivers side axle housing there wil be a broadcast sticker, if it's yellow, it came from the factory as LSD. Third is to jack up the rear in neutral and spin one wheel, if the other spins the same way its either LSD, or has very worn spider gears.

man just get under teh car and look on teh back of the diff housing, if tehre is a high performance tag your in luck

Other wise jack car up from the back and spin one wheel, if they both spin your an lsd boy, if only one turns u know the answer
