    Well sometimes you can find info stamped on the axle tube. But thats usually impossable to find, and then you must decode it. You can take off the cover and the ring gear tooth count and pinion tooth count might be stamped on the ring gear. Then you just divide. Or you count the ring gear teeth and the pinion gear teeth then divide. Or you can mark the tire and drive shaft and while in nuetral see how many turns of the driveshaft it takes to spin the tire once. 3 times = 3.07, 3.5 turns = 3.55 gears, 4 turns =4.10, etc... :cool1:
