87' yj, stock rear diff or lsd?

Hello, yesterday I heard some weird noise coming from the rear diff when moving very slow. I decided it was time for a drain and fill, especially since I went through apx. 4ft of water a few wks ago. I stuck my index finger in the fill hole, it was about an inch from the top, but it was also a bit foamy/bubbly (water iv read). Its the stock dana 35 in my 87' jeep wrangler sport. I picked up 80-90 gear oil and im going to add some lucas oil stabilizer. Anyway to tell if Its lsd or am I ok to use the fluid I have? Thank You

Nope. Not LSD. Use some brake cleaner to really expel eny water that may have contaminated the area.
