if it's stock there's an axle code on either the inside of the door frame, or in the glove box, I don't remember which.
For the 65 (assuming that's what you have from the text under your avatar)
1 = 3.00
3 = 3.20
4 = 3.25
5 = 3.50
6 = 2.80
7 = 3.80
8 = 3.89
9 = 4.11
A = 3.00 t-lock
C = 3.20 t-lock
D = 3.25 t-lock
E = 3.50 t-lock
F = 2.80 t-lock
G = 3.80 t-lock
H = 3.89 t-lock
I = 4.11 t-lock

eh, in that case I think the easiest way (other than pulling it apart and counting the teeth) would be to calculate it .. though i'm not sure of the calculation, give me a minute and i'll see if i can't find it

do the front wheels have to be suspended too???


i have drive up ramps for the front and 2 jack stands for the back would that work?

well the parking brake only applies to the rear, so to be safe, i'd leave the front on the ground, and chalk them, and just raise the back and put it on the jack stands.

1 thing guys....


i had the tire spun while i counted drive shaft rotations


rather than me spinning the shaft and them telling me when 1 tire rotation was complete


does this make a difference?
