# The rear went out in my SUV and I need to know the gear ratio. I have another rear but need to know if it will work.

The rear went out in my 2000 GMC Jimmy. I need to know the gear ratio. I have a rear from a 2000 Chevy Blazer and I want to see if the parts are interchangeable. Thanks

Do you know by chance if the Blazer rear would work?

Hold one wheel. mark the other wheel. Turn the unlocked wheel two complete revolutions. Count the number of turns the yoke make in two revolutions of the unlocked wheel. 3 1/2 turns= 3.42 3 3/4 turns 3.73 and so on

### Will a 96 and a 97 gmc rear axles interchange and how do I find the gear ratio

If the axles are from the same size vehicles the answer is PROBABLY yes.
Differential ratio can be calculated by counting the number of teeth on the crown gear and on the pinion gear. Divide the big number by the small number, that's your ratio (to 1)

### 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.

### Gear ratio rearend

The pining noise you are hearing is detonation in the engine and comes from incorrect air/fuel ratio making the engine run too lean, It is spontaneous combustion occurring before spark and tends to drive the piston back down the bore. It is detrimental to the engine and should be rectified asap. Run fault codes and look for sensor problems. Vin numbers are unlikely to show the gear ratio of the rear end as there are 4 ratios for each model of car. Jack up on side of the rear . count the number of turns the pinion does for each revolution of the wheel . Divide that by 2 ( side gears in diff carrier multiply by 2 when driving one wheel)and you will get the ratio. So 10 revolutions of the tire gives 35.5. revolutions at the pinion equals to 17.5 or a ratio of 1.75: 1 ratio

I see a red flag here. If they don't look the same, they may have different gear ratios. This is critical in a 4 wheel drive. Front and rear gears have to match

If you want to find the ratio then you can remove the rear differential cover and spin the wheels by hand to turn the gears and find the number on the carrier gear. The numbers will be what you need to tell what the ratio is.

### Need to know what model will fit a 1997 rear end because make noise and they say i need anew one

96 to 2001 should fit but you have to find the gear ratio, if you look on the glove box door when you flip it down there will be a bunch of codes. the gear ratio code will be GU6 or something like that. Definitely start with a "G".

### Want to change gears in rear end for posi traction in a 98 gmc25000 is this possible?

It is possible, you just have to know what gear ratio you have in your Sierra. I had issues with my son's rear differential and did the Salvage Yard and picked one up for \$250.00 with less then 45,000 miles. Remember new cars end up at Salvage Yards also.

Here are the Pro code for the rear ends to your Sierra and you can match one up at a Salvage Yard.
GQ1 -- AXLE REAR, STD RATIO
GT4 -- AXLE REAR, 3.73 RATIO
GT5 -- AXLE REAR, 4.10 RATIO
GU4 -- AXLE REAR, 3.08 RATIO
GU5 -- AXLE REAR, 3.23 RATIO
GU6 -- AXLE REAR, 3.42 RATIO
G80 -- AXLE REAR, LIMITED SLIP (POSI TRACTION)

HC4 -- AXLE REAR, 4.56 RATIO

Open Your glove box and look inside it. Should be a list of codes on the bottom.
Example: GU6 G80 According to that, you'll have a 3.42 posi

Good luck and keep me posted and call around Salvage Yards, there prices will differ from one to the next salvage yard and don't ask them for a posi rear end. The cost will you more, just search all the SUV's and look at the pro codes in the glove box. Hunt, most awd system SUV will have the G80 rear end.

Good luck and keep me posted.
