GMC Jimmy with 1.30" Axle Shaft Diameter with GM 8.875" Series Axle with 12 Bolt 1973, Posi™ Rear Differential by Eaton®. Location: Rear. The Eaton Posi limited-slip differential prevents wheel slip before it can get started. To do that, carbon disc clutch packs, preloaded by a central spring assembly, are located behind each differential side gear. When torque input increases the clamping load on the clutch packs increases. That causes the chatter-free clutch packs to grab and transfer power to the other wheel.
