There is a small tag on a rear cover bolt, on it there will be the letters “L/S” and the gear ratio.

There is probably a letter in the VIN but I do not know.

Someone else will cut in here who knows.

The tag is on the door jamb, not the door, so your original will still be there.

If you pop the cover off the axle, there'll be a "S" shaped spring within the carrier.
