were they an option for the touring wagons? There's undercoating on the diff and I can't fit under the car to peel the sticker cover off. I also can't jack up the rear of the car with out the car folding. If it wasn't an option, I wont bother running it up on ramps.

You can't jack the car up with jack under the diff?

Does the car have rear disks? If not, probably no LSD would be my guess.

It was an option for any EA82 really. You'll usually find them on GL10's with full time 4WD and a locking center diff.

If that touring wagon was a GL, non turbo with dual range 4WD then I would say dont waste your time.

You can't fit under a 4WD touring wagon? Dang son - you're a big-un aint ya?


Get the wheels off the ground and rotate them - both go the same way on an LSD, and go opposite on open diffs.

6'4" 250lbs, not so fat, just big. I hadn't even thought about the brakes being a good indicator. I'll take a look tonight and see. as for jacking it up anywhere, I can't believe I was stupid enough to drag it the mile and a half to my house. there is seriously nothing holding the back of the car together, and I set my standards low. If I sneezed near the car, it might collapse.

Its a spfi with an auto, so that's two marks against it being a LSD.
