My new 1996 Caprice wagon has the sticker on the inside of the starboard tailgate jamb indicating it's equipped with the optional heavy duty tow package. There's a mechanical fan under the hood. I assume this means the differential ratio is 3.23:1. Is there any obvious way to tell if the differential is limited slip? I gleaned from earlier posts on this subject in the Forum that many but not all tow pack cars included limited slip differentials.

I note that on line 3 of the service parts identification sticker, there is a code G80, which I believe is the code for the limited slip differential.

Tom's correct. And, yes, G80 is limited slip (and it was optional, not standard, even on tow pack).

Win win! It's a towpack car with limited slip, and no hitch setup. So, it has all the bells and whistles, but never had to drag a trailer over the Rockies.
