? about locker

Speakers of great wisdom,

I have a 14 bolt FF, How can I tell if it has a locker in it without removing the diff cover?

Re: ? about locker

Jack it up and turn one wheel at a time. If they both spin the same way you probably have a locker. I think it could also be a limited slip I'm not sure. You can tell if you get a person on both sides and try to turn in in opposite directions. If it's a locker it will let go under a lot of pressure I think.

I think if you get one side off the ground and spin the tire, you've got limited slip. A locker wouldn't allow you to spin the tire with the other one on the ground because it's locked up....I think.
