The factory code build sheet label on the glove box door or the box itself
The code you are looking for starts with the letter G
That will cross to the ratio you should have
any general motors
dealer will explain to you what the stamped numbers on the right inboard axle housing is correct or not on yours

What is the size of a king ranch f150 2002 ford rear axle housing and it is a double cabin

There are 3 different sizes of axles available.(8.8")(9.75")(10.25") Most 2wd are 8.8" but you can get them in a 9.75". Most 4wd are 9.75" although it is possible to get it in a 8.8". And usually the 10.25" is reserved for 7700 series trucks. This is only a rough guideline as vehicles could be ordered with different options or the axle may have been swapped out. If it has 7 bolt rims then it is definitely a 10.25" and if it has 5 bolt rims its either an 8.8" or a 9.75". The easiest way to tell would be to check the axle tag. It should be bolted right on the rear axle housing. This will give you all of the information of the axle(size/ratio). If not you can give your local Ford dealer a call with the VIN# and if their friendly they will tell you.

Rear axle removal ? i want to take to replace two broken lug nut bolts

to remove the rear axle you will need to put the rear of the jimmy on jack stands off the ground and remove the wheels

then remove the rear drums or if you have disc brakes the caliper and rotor

next you will need to remove the rear differential cover

once you have removed the rear differential cover you will need to rotate the differential by just turning the rear axle to gain access to the lockbolt

using an 8 mm socket you should be able to fairly easily remove the lock bolt

once you have removed the lock bolt you will need to push the axle in from the side that the wheel gets mouted to and then in the rear differential remove the locking 'c' clip

once the locking 'c' clip is removed you should be able to pull the axle right out

installation is the reverse of the removal

keep in mind that after romoving the lock bolt you must make sure not to rotat the axle if you do you will mess up the allignment with the differential and axle and you will spend loads of time trying to re-allign it again

hope this helps

I have 96 chevy silverado extended cab with a vibrationfrom the differential. I found a 2000 gmc Envoy rear end 5 lug. will this bolt up?

Most vibrations are driveshaft being bent,worn u-joint,in need of balance,shocks,wheels,tires and more.I will bet ,swapping the complete rear axle will not change a thing. If it is lifted, you should know your in for problems. If not, and all else fails,strip the rear housing and go through it. The one you swap, may be more worn than yours and not even a good core to rebuild.

Need to know how to remove rear axle bearing

Remove the differential cover let fluid drain. While draining remove the tire on the side with the bad bearing. Remove the brake drum. remove the spider gears if it has a open diff. If not an open diff you will need to get a book at a parts house about $20. After removing spider gears remove the axle C-clip then pull the axle out. You will need a bearing seperator to remove the bearing. An oldschool trick for installing the new bearing with out a press is to stick the axle in a freezer for about 2 hours about 30 minutes before removing the axle put the bearing in an oven at 350 degrees (wear gloves when getting the bearing out) Quickly remove the axle and then remove the bearing and immediatly install the bearing it should drop onto the axle right where the old bearing was I like to take a puch and tat the inside of the bearing to make sure it has seated all the way.
Any questions please let me know
Have a great day

How do I remove the rear axle to replace the seal 1996 jimmy

You will have to remove the differential cover on the rear end, in the center of the gear cluster you'll have to rotate your axle until it exposes the ends of the axle shafts, push in the axles as far as you can from the brake pad assembly area, then, there this a C clips that slips into a groove on the end of the axle, you'll have to reove the C clip to pull out the axle.

Bird Rear-end Size

Hi meduck4,heres what you need brother as I cant see your diff, 3 ways to tell what you have:
#1 The first is the driver's door tag; there will be a one-letter or one-numeral axle code listed there. You can then compare it to the chart below: CODE Rear Axle Ratio Conventional Locking 8 M 2.73 Y Z 3.08 F R 3.45 5 E 3.27 6 W 3.73
#2 The second is the axle tag, attached to the lower lefthand bolt on the rear axle itself. The bottom left line will give you the gear ratio, and the type of rear end (S for limited slip non-locking, and L for locking).

#3 The 7.5" rear axle height is shorter than the width and the shape appears "oval".
The 8.8" rear axle
dimensions are equal and the shape appears "round".

This will tell you what you have my friend,good luck
