Limited Slip diffs should have a tag 200

Odds are, you really don't have to concern yourself about limited slip additives, unless yours is one of the VERY few with this option -- does yours have it?
If you don't know, a tag on the differential should reveal this. Otherwise, just based on probability, probably only one in a thousand (maybe one in a few hundred up north, and maybe one in several thousand down south) have had this installed.

Or, you could determine this (if you're concerned that the tag was lost) by lifting the rear of the car -- without the handbrake on. Turn one rear wheel by hand (e.g., forward) ... if the other rear wheel turns the opposite way (i.e., backward) then you have an ordinary open differential; if it turns the same way (i.e., also forward), then you have a limited slip.
