No if it is it'll say LSD on the sticker, and if you go with a 4" lift kit there will be some axle strain but not much, 3" no additional strain.
thanks Fox... instead of spending $450 on a weber carb, i'm gonna get headers, 2.5" exhaust with a high-flow cat, a k&n air filter, and a 3 inch lift. and I got under the car and looked on the back of my diff..... it said it was a 3.9 but i couldn't see anywhere that it said LSD... if it's a 3.9 does that automatically mean it's an LSD?

does putting a lift on a Subie make it any worse on axles? it seems like it would since the angle between the middle of the wheel and the differential is more extreme...
This really depends on what lift type it is.
- Suspension Lift: Adjusts the suspension higher / lower, and there fore angles at your CVs and DOJs. Fuji Heavy Ind. put adjustable suspension on 4WD models, either the manual or pnuematic. They state clearly that it's more wear on the axle assemblies with their modest suspension lift.
- Body Lift: This puts spacers between your unibody and your main subframes (basicly; there are some details to making it work properly ) This does not effect your suspension geometry and your CV / DOJ angles will be fine. A good xample would be a Back Yard Boy's lift kit.
- Both! Yes lots of vehicles run both.

in order for you to use an lsd you would have to swap an lsd carrier onto a 3.9 diff, or vice versa swapping a 3.9 ring gear onto a lsd carrier.
anyway it can be done, but welding it may be more practical.
with a welded diff, you could pull off a rear axle for stree and install it right quick for some baja'n
