Posably but the best way is to open the inspectio cover and count the teeth on the ring gear and pinion gear then devide the first number by the second

I have a 98 Ford E150 conv. van need to replace complete rear end need to figure out which one I have and what yr will interchange and if a truck rear end work or only a van


Hello Brenda...you will find some identifying information on the actual real axle casing. Stamped numbers, I.D. tag or you can search your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) or make, model year and series on the internet to see what options were available for rear end gearing ratio's.

Yes you should stick with a similar or identical rear end to ensure proper mounting bracket alignment and gear ratio choices. Dana Model 60, 70 & 80 Axles are not internally identical.

Looks like the standard differential carrier for the E150 is a 8.8" (*10 bolt). Standard, Includes Spider gears, 31 spline, 7/8" shaft.

* Ten Bolt - The rear end cover plate contains 10 mounting plate bolt holes.

VIN 2gtek19t311235338. What is the front and rear differential gear ratios?


I can't tell you, though the dealer might be able to. Sometimes the vin will lead to the answer and sometimes it won't.

Often, if alternative ratios are offered and requested by the customer when the vehicle is being built the vin could lead to this information if it is not stamped elsewhere on the vehicle. GM tend to use a separate plate listing a number of codes that when decoded will indicate which options are fitted. Some Ford axles are stamped with the ratios but often a repair manual is needed to know where to search.

If alternative ratios aren't offered as options there is still likely to be some variation in the ratios used depending on a number of variables such as the equipment level, engine capacity and power output, the expected usage and the destination territory and whether manual or automatic transmission is to be fitted.
Often the only way to precisely determine the ratio is to expose the gears and count the teeth.

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

Rear end went out... Need help finding the Ratio to it...


There is supposed to be a code on the front of the left axel tube. It may have lots of paint covering it.
You can also pull the cover, count the teeth and do the math. (the ring gear will also have numbers on it).
What I have done, but others say they have no luck, is call the dealer with your VIN. The VIN leads to a data base with everything that was on the build sheet. The build sheet would have the gear ratio.
Some have said the dealer could not help them. The delaer has helped me before so I know first hand it can be done. And your truck is not too old either.

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,

My 1996 camaro z-28 need the rear end replaced, so were is the id tag, that gives me the correct rearend , in hte car and should I pull out the complete rear end and have it rebuiled, and then reinstalled...


If you take the VIN # to a GM dealer they should be able to tell you the original rear end that the vehicle came with. If you are going to take the rear end to a shop they will be able to tell when they take it apart. If it is a posi rear end it will have a tag under one af the cover bolts (if it has not been removed) Once inside a posi rear end is immediately identifiable from the clutch pack. Also the number of teeth is stamped on each (pinion and ring) gear. Divide ring gear # by Pinion gear # to get rear end ratio. Didn't get directly to your question, but I hope this helps. Let me know. Thanks

Will 1988 astro van parts fit on 1992 astro van


Yes, most of the parts will fit but may not be exact depending on the part/and RPO code.

For example, you could have a different gear ratio in the rear end, this would physically fit, but might not work for your purpose.
