Go look on your door sticker. It will tell you both t-bar rating and gears. I'll put up some pictures in one minute.

The first 2 letters/numbers are the torsion bars while the last 2 are the leaf rating.

You can also look on the rear axle diff cover tag for the gears

Just the strongest bars. They'll hold a crank longer than the other bars.
