There is a tag on the drivers side door jam with a number or look at the little tag on the diff cover and tell us what is says and we'll tell you what you have.

you can also tell from the door sticker.

86 87 95 96 and 97 are the most common codes.

Thanks I couldn't remember where that site was. I have it saved on on my computer at home. I'll keep my stronger axle and crummy gears.
