confused 94-96 differential & traction options

I'm looking at picking up a cougar, somewhere in the 94-96 range.

I've been googling a bit today, but cant seem to find any hard information.

So maybe someone here can school me.

were the traction lock (LSD) differentials standard equipment in all models?
if not what about in all models with the v8 option?

If it has traction control option, does that mean it doesnt have a LSD?
How is the traction control on these cars? is it really intrusive? can it be turned off?

I had a 90 thunderbird once that had an open diff. never again.

Re: 94-96 differential & traction options

Can't personally answer most of your questions but as for how traction control is. I love it. I live in Montana and the roads get pretty slick up here so its nice to have, When its in use you will hear it if it really needs to kick in (for me around curves and sometimes during acceleration) otherwise its very quiet and not noticeable at all. Yes you can turn it off and the switch is just located on the middle console under the radio. The only thing that I don't really like about it is that you have to turn it off every time that you turn the car on (comes on automatically)
