    You may be right... for some reason I think our wheels spun in opposite directions when I had it in the air and checked it for the first time.

    Didnt 2000 T/As come with Zexel-Torsen LSDs? I thought that acted differently that a typical LSD when it is spun on a lift?
    Good question and I'm not certain.

    Someone can verify, but I think that type of LSD, while it works a little differently on how it applies torque to each wheel, will still exhibit the same characteristics when turning the wheels on a lift; both wheels spin in the same direction as it's still a type of limited slip differencial.

    Here's a good illustration of it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/JEiSTzK-A2A

    I am not sure what that year T/A came equipped with off-hand.
