Look at the SPID sheet on the underside of the trunklid. Look for G80, which is limited-slip differential.

Not sure how common this option was on retail cars.

I believe that all of the LT1 civilian Caprice sedans came with posi as part of the required package for the engine (sport suspension, etc.). The G80 was an option on the 9C1 cars, though.

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.

GU4 is the code for 3.08 gear.
G80 is strictly posi.
