Hey guys. Lately I've been wondering about this. Does anybody know if my truck would have a limited slip differential? Or if not, how to find one, online or in a junk yard? I'd really appreciate the help, I just lifted my truck, getting ready for some bigger tires, and I'd rather not skimp on this. Here are the details of my truck, please ask if you need extra info:
Best way to know is lift both rear tires in the air. Place the transmission in neutral. Spin one and notice what direction the other spins. If it spins in the Opposite direction it is an Open differential which is normal/common. If it spins in the same direction then it is a LSD.
I have an open differential... SIGH... I'll look around at junk yards and give some calls. It'll probably end up being off a newer Dakota or Durango. Now, do I have a 7.25 rear end with my 318? On the Diff Wizard page, the cover is the same as mine, but I thought I read they did not put a 7.25 behind the 318's...

That would be odd if it is a 7.25. Possibly someone swapped it in. Octagon shape is the 7.25 Oval shape is 8.25. You can always email Dodge and get a build sheet with all the details for free. The link is in the FAQ.
