ok, theres a tag on the axle that tells you

it will be an 8.8 rear, and the tag will tell you what gears...

also the sticker on the door sides should say the axle code, copy down the numbers and post it so we can help more

90% chance you have 4.10's
8.8" ring gear rear end.

Just read around the forums for awhile.. you tend to pick up stuff....

The door has an axle code which you can look up on the web or even..... in the owner's manual, at least they used to be in there.

The axle tag spells it out in a number plain as day.

IBLKOUT02 on your door it says axle and the code number is 97 you have a 8.8 4:10 open

And to the first guy that asked your door said axle code R7 you have a 8.8 4:10 limited slip

There is nothing to maintain in a Traction Lok differential, or a Torsen differential (both Ford OEM limited slips).

No, that does not sound right, unless you have put in some after market parts like a selectable locker, electric or air operated.
