I was hoping I could get a confirmation of everything I'm reading and seeing that the differential in my Range Rover is NOT a limited slip diff.

I don't see any replacement parts for differential clutch or clutch like mechanisms on any of the Rovers North and Atlantic British sites. Also LR's publication the Authoritative Guide to Sport Utilities says, "electronic traction control acts as a slip-limiting device." And looking at the bloody thing I didn't see anything that looked like it could be a clutching mechanism.

Before I put it back in the vehicle I just wanted to make sure I didn't have to rebuilt it or replace it.

If you share your thoughts with me, you may end up in my blog post! So you've got that going for ya. Thanks for your help. :dance:

If it's a standard diff, then it's not limited slip.

but is quite distinct from a LSD. It's unlikely your RR has an aftermarket LSD, it's not something people normally add.

Your car would have a standard open diff. LR never offered an LSD.

Electronic Traction Control is done by braking the spinning wheel - it utilises the ABS sensors to determine which wheel is spinning - and putting the drive to the wheel with traction.

They switched about half way through the year. I read that somewhere, I think it was on this board or Land Rovers Only.

That's my understanding as well.
