ThunderBird lx Sure Grip Questions

I heard that possibly some of the thunderBirds from factory came with SureGrip/Posi Not sure if mine does or not cause sometimes I leave a one wheel peel and other times I leave two marks but the other one is very faint. I have a 94 tbird lx 4.6

Sure Grip is a Chrysler term, as well Posi being a GM term..

The limited-slip found in the MN12, and most Ford vehicles is what's known as a Traction-Lok or Trac-Lok for short..

The Trac-Lok was indeed available in all of the 89-97 MN12..

Check the Axle Code on your Driver Side door jamb:


The Axle Code is right underneath where it says "AX"..

You can decipher whether or not you have a Trac-Lok, and what gears you have by comparing your Axle Code with this list:


There's more info on that here-->>Gears and Axles

No, look again.

5 is under "Conventional". A 3.27 with the TrakLok would be a E or XE.
