    Limited Slip ???

    The V has a mechanical clutch type limited slip diff right? Not an electronic braking type. I'm not talking about the traction control program. I'm talking the guts of the Getrag.

    You are correct - it is a mechanical clutch type limited slip.

    I bet you were wondering if that is why your rear calipers are gold! Maybe you should just tell everybody that you are just that bad ass!

    You are correct sir.
    It has what I affectionately refer to as a G80 diff.
    G80 is not listed on the SPID label of a V because it is part of another package that the V has, the base models all show G80 with limited slip if so equipped.
    My Trailblazer has G80 but it is an Eaton locker which uses some quite different parts.
    It has a flyweight and some gears in it to lock the rear end but the principle is the same.

    Excellent !! Very astute on your part. I wish I was a bad ass, then I wouldn't be going nuts trying to find out if something is hosed up with my brakes.
