Unless it has been removed or broken off there should be a tag on the diff that tells you the gear ratio. If not you can go to a dealer and they should be able to run the vin number and tell you what gear ratio you have.

Another good way is to jack the back wheels up. Mark the driveshaft and the inside of the one of the wheels. See how many times the driveshaft turns to get the tire to turn one complete revolution. Example: if driveshaft turns just a little more than 4 turns to the tires one turn..you've got 4:11's...3.7 turns?..3.73's...3.5 turns? ..3:55's.

Look at the sticker in the driver side door jamb. Under axle it will have a 2 dig. code. Let me know what it is and I will look it up.

I'm looking at buying an 89 F350 parts truck and the guy said the axle code is 39. What would that be? I thought the first number in the code was always a letter?
