You could try the old racer's trick, which I believe still works for the 91 Caprice... jack the rear axle up in the center until both wheels are off the ground, then spin one rear wheel. If the other wheel spins the same direction it is a limited slip or posi. If it spins the opposite direction it is an open rear end.

here is the GM part number for the posi additive
#1052358 retails for $12.65

You can also use the Mopar part number for the appication
#4318060AB retails for $7.67

Any GM or Chrysler, Dodge dealer should have this stuff in stock.

Just add the bottle and top off with the appropriate weight gear lube
