Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I have a 2000 chevy silverado 1500 4wd v8 5.3l. I need how to find out what the gear ratio is to order a new rear end, the one i have has just exploded.
You can count the teeth on the ring gear and divide that # by the tooth count on the pinion. An example is: ring gear 100, pinion 10 ...100divided by 10 is 10, expressed as 10 to one. (fake #) your diff is likely a 3 series such as 3.23 to 1. or a four series such as 4.11 to 1. If you have four wheel drive it is critical to match exactly. if not you can get better performance by changing ratio to something that better fits your needs. 4 series pull loads well, 3 series are better on fuel.(depending upon terrain)
