Default How to Check if the Civic is having LSD Gearbox???

Hi, I've gone through a car advertisment saying that this particular 96 JDM-EK4 comes with a LSD Gearbox. Is there any quick method to confirm it without taking the whole tranny apart?

100% way to know is to pull out an axle.

Jack it up, and spin one of the wheels. If the wheel on the other side spins also, the it has LSD.

If you can NOT look thru it, then you do not have LSD.

WOW, OMG, that means I need to take the axles apart to confirm it. I m just concerned that the guy wouldn't let me do it. I wouldn't let someone jack my car up, tear the axles apart just to see the LSD

How about markings on the gearbox? I've browse the net and so far I've only found marking for the Y1 Tranny. Is there any markings for the 96 B16A LSD gearbox somewhere on the tranny?

but both wheels must spin the same way when they are off the ground. an open diff will spin the other one backwards

that test is bullshit. i have a stock civic dx.. and both of my tires spin when i did a burnout.. there's no way that they put LSD on a civic dx from the factory
