limited slip

CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW TO CHECK TO SEE IF A TRUCK HAS LIMITED SLIP? I AM LOOKING TO BUY A S10 87-93 AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO CHECK THRU CODE NUMBERS, SINCE IT IS HARD TO JACK A CAR UP ON A CAR LOT AND SPIN THE TIRES TO SEE IF THEY TURN IN THE SAME DIRECTION. THANKS

Re: limited slip

Not sure if it's still this way, but on my 85 S15 they had a build options sheet in the glovebox.. It had the options actually written out, instead of there being codes... It will say "locking differential", at least if that option was ordered from the factory... Maybe someone can tell you how you'd be able to check it a different way... hope that helps...

Re: limited slip

In 1986 GM switched from writing the options out to using codes. Try looking in a factory service manual, the codes are explained in there.

Rear Axil Positraction, look at list of codes in dash, "G80" is positraction.
