    Look at the passenger side of your t-case (I;m pretty sure thats where it is). You should be able to see your speedo cable go into the side of it. There is also a plate right there being held by one screw. Behind that you will find your speedo gear. The GM dealer can get you a bunch of different ones. Someone on this site might have a link to how to chose the right one. If i remember right there was a chart with tire sizes and gears then it would tell you the tooth count. Dont remember tho.
