dmorris1200 Or if there's no tag on the rear cover to tell for sure take the cover off. Count the number of teeth on the ring and on the pinion gear. Divide those numbers and that's your ratio. Ex. 30 teeth (ring) divided by 10 teeth (pinion) = 3.00 to 1 ratio. 37 (ring) divided by 10 (pinion) = 3.70 gear set.

deuce_454 you can do three things, either look at the VIN, and check the manual, or the tag on the rear end itself, and lastly you can spinn the wheels simultaniously and count the number of revolutions the yoke makes, and devide the two..
