so far I've found pioneer speakers in the back. a Double hook quadrant with an ajustable clutch cable. and now when I went to the shop to get my 3.73 installed they pulled the diff cover and they tell me that I already have a 3.73 I was so pissed they looked at me like I was stupid and then I explained them the situation and I guess they where like WTF so I have to return my gears

I had that same situation last winter. Was debating on 3:73s or 4:10s. decided on 4:10s and when i pulled the cover there was 3:73s in it. I'm so glad i didnt get 3:73s

Oh hell yeah. but the difference wasnt as much as i was anticipating because I thought it had 3.27s in it. The plus side was the car had 32k on it, odometer was calibrated. tracked down the original owner and when they were put in. turns out the car had 25k on it :D

easy way to check:mark the top of one of the back tires, jack the car up and spin the driveshaft one full spin and the tire should spin however many time your ratio is. ex if you have 3.73 hears in there the wheel should spin 3.73 times for every 1 spin of the driveshaft.

much easier to check then popping the differential cover

If you have an operational trac - loc, both wheels do have to be off the ground :)

yes, both back wheels, i'd suggest having the whole car up on 4 jack stands

If you had a 0.26 gears then yes ;)
Slight correction. The drive shaft will spin 3.73 times for every one spin of the wheel.
Got me, my mistake....they would have been all discombobulated

I purchased my 88 hatch that I daily drive from a very attractive mid 20 year old girl.. she was hot

Anyways a few weeks after having the car I pulled the interior out and steamed vac'd it and replaced the carpet. Well I found six love notes from other girls to this girl I bought the car from. They were real juicy and graphic which was pretty sweet. I called the chick back up and mentioned to her that I found some pretty exciting love notes and if she wanted them and she came over the next day to grab them and explained that she swung both ways
