Posi and limited slip are the same thing.
GM coined the term 'posi' so Ford called theirs 'limited slip'.

Kruzr, put rear axle on jack stands and put in gear slightly above idle. Watch rear wheels and both should start rotating at same speed shortly after placing in gear. If you really have a posi track rear, I certainly be interested in the 3rd member (don't want to pay freight on the rest) You will be able to tell for sure when you pull the 3rd member.
