Just jack up your car and look at the small tag on the diff. Should have a SD on it if it's a LSD...

it should have a tag with the ratio on it.. maybe not because sometimes they rust off. then next time your at the shop on the hoist, slip under the car mark the half shaft at diff and the drive shaft. then count how many times it takes to turn the drive shaft for one single rotation of the tires. example 4 turns 3 3/4 turns, it will give you a close idea.

while your under there get someone to hold one tire while you turn the other, if it's hard to turn the LSD is working good. and both tires your rotate in the same direction if it's a true LSD.

Good luck

Or just look at the rear tires.. if they are BOTH bald you got a LSD if the right side is bald you got an open diff.
