Default Were all 3.909 from six speeds LSD?

I have searched and am 99.9% sure that all 3.909 rear ends came with the torsen II, but just wanted to confirm before I drove 3 hours to go pick one up from a salvage yard. Found a great deal, but no pics. Also, did the 10AE cars have a special vin number?
Thanks

6-spd is always LSD

99-02 6-spd = 3.909 TII
03 6-spd = 3.909 T-F (recommend avoiding)
04-05 6-spd = 4.10 T-F (std) or Bosch Torsen (msm)

10AE does not have a "special" vin, but you can look up a car's equipment by vin. I got your PM, it did not make sense until I saw this post. Consider this your reply.

so the 04-05's had the 4.10 with the 6 speed? I did not know that. For some reason I thought all 6 speeds came with a 3.9. Thanx Ben
