    A fairly easy way to find out. When you have the front off the ground, lock the hubs (if PT kit put in), place a crayon mark on the driveshaft, turn the wheel one revolution, count how many times the drive shaft turns. It will get you close to what you have without having to do any disassembly.

    The options sticker (if its still there) provides that information in code doesn't it?
