in your glove box. should be a sticker with alot of 3digit number/letters. Look for G80, thats the RPO code for a limited slip.

Jack up the rear. Spin one tire. If the other tire spins the same direction you have one If it spins the other direction it is an open diff.

well im not sure, that may be true about the G80 posi but with my zexel if you jack the rear up and spin one tire the other one will spin the opposite way, but as soon as theres a tiny bit of resistance on one tire it locks up.

that would be a full time posi and not the limited slip s-10's and blazer's come with.

yeah my limited slip spins the other way too. i think mines a lil worn out cuz i cant spin both of them consistently on flat ground... the pass side tends to spin more
