    Did GM ever make a front limited slip an option on 10 bolt axle?
    And if they did I just know it can't be the Gov. Lok type by Eaton.
    How about military Blazers?

    I see no reason why you couldn't put the factory posi in the front. The front and rear 10-bolt carriers are the some on some trucks. Then you could run front and rear gov-locks. This must be what Executioner has. But factory? It would be interesting to see the option codes for that. I am pretty sure that this doesn't exist according to GM, but they are also pretty famous for putting stuff on the road that isn't technically available.

    Executioner?

    New 4x4 driver: "A lot of money in that truck, eh?"
    Me: "Oh, about 1/4 of a new one"

    I have never heard of a factory front posi offered by GM.

    As far as Executioner's post, this is also the same guy who thinks he has a front 12-bolt. Huh, must have been some crazy dealer installed option!

    Dear 6.2-
    Thanks for the input, I'm starting to think you know your s**t.
    Give me an E mail on what you think I can do for cheap for front limited slip locker.
    Have stocker that has Gov lok in rear with new cluth plates rebuilt by me, yes I know it's not as good as Detriot locker. Expecting deep snow this year want daily driver ready. Trying for inexpensive front limited slip, nothing from stock available( maybe put 10bolt rear gov lock into front, or bad idea( being speed governing ratchet)?
