It's most likely not a posi, or a limited slip- unless the rearend came out of a factory high performance vehicle- like a Chevelle SS, or somethin' like that.One quick look at the guts should determine what you're lookin' at- good luck-PEACE

get the rear off the ground...spin the wheel.. if the other spins the same direction its posi..it it spin the opposite its a one wheel wonder lol

you can also take the cover off and look at the spider gears...if the have clutch disks then its a posi...

or you can do a burn out if there are you tire marks on the pavement its a posi

Or take the diff cover off. Look at the carrier.

An open ended carrier (one wheel peel) will have 4 gears in the carrier (spider gears) with no springs or clutch plates. You'll know if they are there. The posi will have springs and/or clutch plates on the sides by the gears.
