    I purchased a GSR crank online for like $30 shipped. ( I know what a steal if it is not f'd up and the real deal, but for $30, I'll take a chance). My question is, how can I tell the difference between GSR and LS to find if he truley sold me a GSR crank and not an LS? I am assuming rod journal diameter should be different, yes? thank for your help

    The rod bearings are wider on an LS crank, I dont have a Helms in front of me, but visually you cen see they are wider.
