Diff noise

I've got an Ef Fairmont, series 1. whenever i break it loose, there is a weird 'clicking' noise from the right rear wheel area, can easily hear it from the cabin after it gains traction again, almost sounds like rocks flicking up or something, but its not. also, would it have LSD? because sometimes its both wheels, sometimes not.
CONFUSED!

thanks.

if it spins both wheels then its an LSD, if it spins both wheels only half the time, then its a screwed LSD!

Have u checked fluid levels in diff for starters?

It's only lsd not a locker or spool.They don't have clutch packs like the 9" either. Just a cone and cup.Thats if it's lsd? Jack rear up, in gear both wheels should turn the same way- if it turn opposit , its a single wheeeler [Graffiti ]..It's fairly normal for them to make that kind of noise. When did you change the diff oil???

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Spinning usually one wheel then sometimes going two wheel can also be a symptom of an open diff about to shi* itself....
