Default Axle Swap Question

I'm cosidering buying beef08's rear axle when hes done with it. My main concern is that I want it to be posi. He has a 2003 FX4. It has 4.10's in it. 29 spline. Is it posi? And if I get it can I get FX2 stickers??

he says that only level 2 FX4's have 31 spline, does this change limited slip?

My bad ya the level II is 31 spline

Some axles other then those are l/s as well

Yes posi and l/s are the same. I think GM coined the phrase posi
