Default How do I tell if my turbo legacy has an LSD?

I just bought a 91 turbo Legacy 5spd sedan and was wondering how to tell if it has an LSD or Open rear diff.

It says on the rear diff case i am fairly sure if it is LSD, also if you pop an axle off and it has the stubs out of the diff i think it indicates LSD. I used to know this by heart, i think im losing it, haha.

All '91's have the LSD rear diff, to confirm look on the rear diff cover, their should be a tag that says LSD 3.90 and a part number.

Only the '91 Legacy Turbo's came with it....it was omitted from the '92-'94's

There may have been an occasional optional LSD in the 92-94 models, but this is just a rumor.

If it does this:

Only the 91's got the LSD, it was not an option on the 92-94's.

Sticker should look like this

I don't know about the years that had them and the years that didn't but I know that if your diff is an LSD it will say it on the case of the diff "LSD"
