No, the Circlips are a part of the halfshaft, not the differential.

Don't get the difference between Trac Loc and Limited slip
I thought it was just different names on the same thing..

But I'm guessing that he's going to use this...

They are the same thing, Ford just calls theirs Trac-Lock.

I may be wrong, but Auburn uses "cones" and Ford uses "discs". The Auburn gives more holding power because the cones have more surface area than the Ford flat discs.

But they both work on the exact same principle, "friction".

Please define your term "True Posi"?

Please explain Your defination of a "True Posi" (Positive Traction).

The Trac-Loc (Traction Lock) & Posi (Positive Traction) are BOTH Clutch type Limited Slip Differentials. The Auburn is a Cone type Limited Slip Differential.
