What is the best diff gear ratio for the following bakkie, i think at present it is 4.44 or 4.11, can this be confirmed?

Go with what is in it. tags on the diff will tell you what you have. If no tags, then pull the plate and get the numbers off the ring gear. You may only need to replace bearings.

2000 gmc jimmy 4X4 how do i know what size rear axel do i need there is like 6 different ones

If you are talking about gear ratio, there is probably a tag on one of the bolts that holds the inspection plate to the housing. It should tell you the gear ratio and ring gear size. If its not there you can pull that plate off (be sure to have an oil catch pan under it) and look at the ring gear itself. All of that same information will be stamped on the ring gear, on the surface of the gear facing you. You may need to rotate it so you can see the stamp.

What is the rear end ratio for 2005 Jeep Liberty limited edition 4wd

You will need to locate the tag on the rear end cover and find out the gear ratio, if theres no tag then you will need the manufactors date on the door, for example 04/05, and also if it got abs, there are three types,4.10 or 3.55 or 3.73. the best way is the tag or pull cover and count the teeth on ring gear and pinion gear and divide the two to get the ratio. goodday, also try to call the dealer parts dept and give them the vin # and they may be able to tell you the type rear end you have,

I presume you're asking if they will interchange?The 616 ASw tag number looks valid,that would be decoded,1996 year model.the 3rd 6 in "616" is the year model,and the ASw looks valid as the actual axle ratio code,which i will have to look up at work,but the second tag,recheck those numbers,i can't make any sense of them.

1995 cutlass supreme transmission

It physically will fit and bolt up,but there are many different ratio,and drive and driven sprocket tooth counts,different final drive ratios,all monitored by the computer with electronic speed sensors.If the trans from the 95 has a different ratio than the 93,the computer will set gear ratio error codes,and possibly put the trans in a failsafe mode,stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear.On the transmission case,down by where the passenger side axle would go in,is a thin metallic tag,maybe 2"x 3",and it has bar codes,and also a series of numbers and letters.The numbers and letters,large cap,are the final drive gear ratio code.They should match on the two transmissions in question.
