factory posi??

I'm not a Ford guy and I'm trying to find out what this carrier is. Is it a factory limited slip? I found one web page that called it a posi? is there such a thing as a factory posi for the 8.8?

Besides pulling the axle shafts, how do I find out if this 8.8 has 31 spline shafts?

if you know its origins,you will know.
all fullsize trucks and explorers had 31,rangers and cars had 28.

That's the problem, I don't know what it came out of. I found it in a scrap metal bin.

ok,if its 5 on 5.5 lug pattern,its 31
if its 5 on 4.5 with leaf mounts on the bottom of the tube and no shock mounts,it might be explorer(31)or a leaf spring car(28).
if it has 4-link mounts,its from a car(28),and if it has 5on 4.5 with leaf mounts on top and shock mounts,its from a ranger(28)

why not just count the splines inside the carrier?

Mustang Cobra's had 31 spline shafts too........pretty unlikely you'll find one in the scrap bin tho

that's a trac-loc, they can be made to perform better by rearranging the order of the clutch discs/spacers.......count the splines on the inside of the side gears

i am sure that is just a factory open rear end with the LS spring in the center. the traction loc diff had a slot 1"X1" square cut out so the pins on the clutches would hold. I do not see and clutches in the diff. i can not post here but i got pics of the ford traction loc that was in my bronco.
