Heres how to tell if your diffs are open or not.

Raise the vehicle so that both wheels are off the ground.

Turn one wheel

If the other wheel turns in the opposite direction your diff is open

If the other wheel turns in the same direction you have some kind of a traction device installed in the diff.

It's that simple...you just can't tell what kind of device it is.

The only way this wouldn't work is if the traction device is so hooped that it won't function anymore. But I think you would have noticed other problems with the diff already.

Hope this helps :D:D
