To the best of my knowledge, GM used the Auburn unit in cars with the 7.5"/ 7.6" 10-bolt (B, F, and G-bodies).
Chevy S10s with the "little 10-bolt" as it can be known (GM had A LOT of "10-bolt" axles over the years)had the "Gov-Lock" limited slip unit with a centrifugal weight that locked when the difference in wheel speeds was over a certain speed.
They stopped using it in 1998, when they updated the F-body and went to a Torsen differential.

The trucks still use the Gov-Lock differential to this day.

MOPAR also offered cone type LSDs. They seemed to have abandoned clutch style in the early '70's
