    btw: my 6cyl didn't have a posi. It sucked!!!
    The one I have I bought NIB at the Long Beach swap meet for $20 about 10-15 years ago. The casting number and date code indicate that it's a 12-bolt passenger car carrier. I use it as a door stop and a conversation piece.

    I've found that more posi cars from "back in the day" were built in back east and mid-west plants due to the winter snow and lack of traction. Quite a few of the hipo west coast (especially LA) built cars had open diffs unless you ordered it with a posi.

    After looking it up ive found that i have the posi traction limited slip. Once i start doing my burnout the passenger side starts moving immediately and the driver side slowly starts turning and takes about a second to catch up with the passenger side. But leaves to strips of rubber. So it looks like theres a G76 : POSITRACTION REAR/ G80 : AXLE POSITRACTION, LIMITED SLIP/ and G81 : POSITRACTION REAR AXLE

    my knowledge of the RPO codes for newer camaros i limited. but....it sounds like your clutch type differential needs replacing. not a big deal unless your broke(money wise). if you have the fundage pick a rear that suits you 9"ford or 12 bolt style or even the new S60 which is really a DANA 60. or just buy a new center section and be happy.

    To replace the clutches in an Eaton posi unit you have to disasmble the entire rear end. Easier than it sounds but harder than it looks especially if you don't have the correct tools for reassembly. To wit: a dial indicator with a magnetic base and a torque wrench that goes up to the necessary torque value for the pinion nut. Not really a job for a novice. Like the man sez, if you've the required $$$ invest in a better unit as this IS the weakest link in the drivetrain.

    Interesting...well maybe I'll try an actual burnout and quit being so cheap when it comes to tires and see what happens....then I'll go from there with the replacement of the rear end.

    Yeah, its called an Auburn!!!!
    It is worn out to the point that it does a one legger!!!
    I just pulled my Auburn out of my Camaro which was doing a one legger! Installed a Torsen, which will not wear out like a Auburn.

    YES!!! I'm not one-legger! I went out and found a dead parking lot by some university and let em roast for a couple seconds....hehe.... i guess it takes a second or two for the driver side to start

    Mines the exact same way. Takes a second for the driver side to get going.
