Question about 2001 Toyota Tacoma
Decifering the ''build'' codes on the door jam identifying what gear ratio on my toyota tacoma 2001 rear axle, have found others with a different code, but what do they signify? Need an exact match-what vehicles will use the same rear differential, I have a PreRunner, will 4Runner or 4X4 use the same rear axle ratios? The VIN shows two different axle ratios, according to Toyota. Need to know, some salvage yards have the unit out, need ratio on mine before we take it apart, only vehicle on the road, once its down, can't run around looking for parts :)
I would call the dealer parts dept. they should be able to tell you what you need to know. there may be a difference in gear ratio for each engine/ trans combination. A salvage yard may be able to help you , they should have a computer system showing what rear is compatible. there should be a code on the axle housing itself.
