limited slip

Did all gts come with limited slip? Are there any advantages to having or not having it ?

I believe all GT's came with limited slip. The main advantage is traction. The power is applied to both wheels. As far as disadvantages, the only one that I can think of is, typically an open differential (non-limited slip) will last longer as there are less parts to wear out. In a car such as a V8 Mustang, though, the benefits of having the extra traction far outweighs any disadvantage.

I think may be worn out. Are they expensive to rebuild?

If you have a trac-lock the clutches and bearing kits are fairly reasonable. You may want to look into some aftermarket units though as they are generally better quality.

Aftermarket differentials? Or aftermarket rebuild kits?

Differentials. The kits that I was referring to are Ford Racing but Im sure that there must be aftermarket as well...

Be aware that most aftermarket or upgraded diffs are at least 31 spline so you'll need new axles too. Stockers are 28 spline. Its good to upgrade anyway so it isn't necessarily a bad thing. You can always just get a rebuilt stock diff too and add extra clutches to it while its out if you want as well.
