What rear end do I have?

Will the vin# tell or maybe the cowl tag give some info on it. It is a 12 bolt don't know any more yet. Do I need to scrub the tubes and get the numbers off of them? I'd like to find out the ratio and if it is a posi.

VIN nor Cowl tag will have any rear end data.

You will need to look for the stamped numbers on the tube. It is usually fairly easy to find.

will be something like

EP 0201G1

you can easily tell if its a posi by jacking up one wheel and if it spins its an open rear end.

Also can determine ratio by spinning the wheels/driveshaft

Here is an illustration showing you where to find the stamped information we can decode once you post it.

Send a message via AIM to TAR6569
If you post the vin and cowl tag info, I may be able to narrow down what the axle code could be
