On my 94 Civvie Caprice SPID, I have the following. Not sure if they came as part of a 'package'. Funny part was before looking at the SPID, I did a small power brake in the car lot to see if it had posi. Surprised the salesman to say the least
B4U - PERFORMANCE PACKAGE, SPORT
GW9 - AXLE REAR, 2.93 RATIO
G80 - AXLE POSITRACTION, LIMITED SLIP
KD1 - COOLING SYSTEM, TRANS OIL
V08 - COOLING SYSTEM, HEAVY WTY
V92 - TRAILER PROVISIONS
Maybe the G80 had to be ordered in combo with the B4U or V92 RPPO, don't know. I bought it used.
Thanks..I have to update the site with my 95 9C1 and with some great shots of my old Caprice cruiser from Real Stories of the Highway Patrol during a high speed pursuit that they taped during the "files" section of the show. The speeds during the taping were over 100, btw.
posi!!!!!!!! love it. did a quick power brake out by the river at like 2 am. no one was around and my friend wanted to smell some rubber. hey charlie i remember that show! i looked at yer sig and was thinkin.. looks familiar. i can't remember much except the begining. got any video files of it?
Fuzzychevy, it's not really strange. It is done for a reason. One wheel drive is much more forgiving in inclement weather, ie. snow and water. It is much easier to swap ends with a limited slip equipped car. You do however give up some acceleration with a "one legger".
I agree with CharlieS statement. My 96 LT1 Civi had the engine, suspension, and Posi as part of a package deal. This package is SPID code B4U. It includes a tranny cooler as well. My car also has the heavy frame. The best thing about the car was that I was able to purchase it at only 27K a couple years back. Black car, very straight, and it's loaded. Compared to my 94 9C1 it's a LOT less nickle dime repairs. I think they're worth looking at... a true sleeper mobile. I bought mine from a 78 year old!
Alright. I've seen this type of thread as a sticky on other forums basically just there to make small talk about small upgrades, customizations, or whathaveyou. I'll start it off and we'll see where it goes.
This weekend I managed, with the help of a Hoosier INC brother (BuiltBySparky on here)...
