    I was wondering if there are any numbers or letters stamped on the rearend, that would specify the gear ratio of the differential without jacking it up and pulling the cover, or spinning the tire and counting the yoke turns?

    Most cars, or all cars, have a tag under one of the bolts that holds the rear cover on the rear that specifies the gear ratio. Im pretty sure that every rear wheel drive vehicle has this tag. Mike
