Locking differential v. limited slip
I just purchased a 2005 Suburban.
How can I tell if it has the "locking differential". And if so, is the Chevy "locking differential" a true locker, or is it really a limited slip? And if it is limited slip is it mechanical?
Also, It was advertised as an LT model. I'm now very suspucisous?
It only has the 16 in tires and no leather. It has lots of other options like the bucket seats in the, towing package, multi zone AC/Heat, with rear control panel.
Also has the rear audio control,
but as I said, many things standard on the LT are not there, like:
17 in wheels
garage door openers
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I did find out, via the dealership running the vin and printing off all the standards and options, that it is indeed an LS. I should have done this pre purchase. Seller advertised and sold it as an LT. I still think I got a decent deal, not a great deal any longer, by paying $15,400 for this 2005 LS with only 30,000 miles. It has the full tow package, with locking rear dif, power driver seat, front and rear air and stero with the upgraded bose speakers, and on star.... again, wish I had done my research on the LS and not the LT.
