Do I have LSD ? Video

I have a 97 sport 5speed 4.0. Previous owner says he had a rear LSD installed many years ago. He does not remember what LSD it is. At this moment, I don't want to take off the cover to see. I just want to know if I have limited slip.

Wrangler was in 2WD and neutral transmission wise.

The rear wheels spin the same direction when turned.

The front wheels spin independently. -Is this normal?

Yup. Limited or locker. Can't really say. But open diff causes wheels to spin opposite ways.

(PS don't call your Jeep a car on here. People go nuts)

Thanks. Now I wonder what LSD. That looks like a D35 carrier?

For a Eaton/Detroit TrueTrac limited slip, I think the opposite wheel turns in the opposite direction.

It wouldn't surprise me if it is a factory LSD. my jeep came with a factory lsd and behaves the same. Also your front does that because it is open diff
