    Did GM offer detroit lockers as an option in 78 or is the listed rpo code in the glove box just being wishfull. All of the RPO code lists I've seen list "G80" as being a limited slip or positraction. In the glovebox it is listed as a locker.

    I'm going to be checking out the axles tomorrow after I clean up this blazer I picked up today so I guess I'll know for sure then but I was just wondering if I can expect a pleasant surprise or not. (probably not.... I'm never that lucky)

    depends on the axle, but since is a blazer then originally was a 10 or 12 bolt so is just normal posi and probably gov lok if is 78
