Excuse my ignorance!


Recommended Posts

I know this has been thrown around plenty ...but where exactly is the tag in the axle that contains the gear ratio..im swapping my rear diff for one that has been factory drilled and tapped for the transverse torque rod bracket and I would like to be able to check the ratio in the axle that I plan to buy in order to match it to the ratio in the front diff....

Im doing this cuz it would be easier and cheaper to go to the scrap yard and swap the owner my working diff for one his ..just would have to pay a lil difference in price but definitely cheaper than drilling and tapping...

Also since im just swapping the diff itself and not the whole axle , would this be a direct drop in fitment or the axle and diff have changed over the years?.would I have to buy a corresponding 1996 model diff since that's the year model of the truck?

Please advice


Ps:Picture is off the web and not the exact diff I would be buying.
