XF Diff identification

Hi Guys.

Have a question about my xf Fairmont. I think it has a LSD, although it has a black filler plug, because of the way it handles in the wet.

I have taken the information off the ID tag and was wondering if anyone has the same part and ratio and knows if mine is LSD or SS?

Ratio: 2.92
SEr No : 0402
Part NO : 860A 4005 LA

Its a 87 model if that helps.

Thanks.

Damo

Re: XF Diff identification

I'd say its a SS. Normally the LSD's have "Spin Resistant Diff" or the like on them.

Re: XF Diff identification

jack one side of the rear up & see if you can turn the wheel or not

Re: XF Diff identification

Yep, what Rod said. With the car in park, park brake off, front wheels chocked and one wheel jacked off the ground... just try turning the wheel in the air. If it turns you either have a single spinner or a totally rooted LSD.

P.s. Most SS cars can still get both tyers turning in the wet.

if the car is in Park you wont be able to turn either wheel, leave the car in Neutral

You need to leave one wheel still on the ground to get a definate result.

Re: XF Diff identification

Being an 87 I`d say it would either be disc brake with LSD or Drum brake single wheeler
