Question detroit locker question in a toy

my buddy has a sweet Toyota landcruiser. shackle flip, spring over, awesome 302, 37" boggers, a great do it all vehicle.
now in his front end it started making nasty noises during a run. and had 1 wheel drive short side (passenger). we figured broken hub/axle. axle & hub seem fine. pulled out the diff lancruiser diffs pull out like a ford 9". no visible damage on the Detroit locker.
he doesn't want to unnecessarily pull out the locker and have to reset the bearings. is there a way to tell if its fucked or not? I mean without dismantling it?

Yep it was the outer dog clutch shattered into 6-8 pieces. A lot of the teeth were pulled off too, is that normal breakage?
