I am going to buy a limited slip for my corperate 10 bolt today. The spline count is 28 and mine is 28. He wants 50 bucks for it. Dosent know year of it but mine is a 84. How do I test the slip to tell if the unit is bad. At worst case I will buy and not work so I will be out 50 bucks. Any help or info will help.

Depending on what kind of limited slip it is,you will have to pull it apart.
if it is a Gov Lok..Run very fast :) they are a POS.
If it has cluches you can rebuild it easily.
Make sure the carrier is correct for your gears,4 series or a 3 series.

My gears are 3.73 and 28 spline. He said it was a 28 spline and he thinks it came out of a ??camaro or firebird?? around 70's-80's What is a gov loc?

As it came out of the rear of a Firechicken you will need to know if it is a 7.5" or a 7.625" carrier.
Check these out to help id what your looking at.
1 is stock(bottom) 1 is aftermarket (top)

you can tell a gov Lock by the weighted arm with the spring attatched that helps to engage the unit,it is very visable.
Odds are you are looking at a 7.625 Auburn which i do not think will fit in the Corp 10 bolt trk axle,at least accoeding to my Hollander and Mitchell interchange amunauls.
You can call somewhere like 6 states or randys ring and pinon and see what they say.
