Stupid question time (V6 differential)

Here we go...


I have a LS with a manual. What is my rear ratio, and do I or do I not have an LSD? I have yet to find a clear answer, and after looking at my manual, it just raised more questions.

Yes, you have LSD. V6 autos do not.

I believe the rear gear is 3.27.

I think the LSD will have a G-80 code on the code tag...in the glove box.

If you have the manual transmission you have an LS diff. The gear ratio is 3:27.

Most V6's with the A6 most certainly do have the LSD! Just go to youtube and watch a few burnouts. I know mine does.

Not according to GM.

You can see two stripes because of the IRS - it allows both wheels to stay square to the road better than a straight axle and thus both tires will leave stripes. But it is not LSD.

The LS manual trans has a 3.27 LSD in it yes, the manual cars also share the differentials with the automatic SS so gears made for them will go right in
