    Welcome! An automatic locking rear differential is just a limited slip. Chevrolet portrays it as a locker, but lockers are not automatic but are controlled from the cab. Limited slips lock when they feel a wheel slipping, and then they either connect both sides together or send the power to the wheel with traction. Hope this helps!

    Just to clarify, the G80 IS a locking differential, not a limited slip, albeit, not a great example of a locking diff, but it is a locking diff none the less.
