6.72? 7.17? 3.50? 4.10?



how the hell do we know? Your the one laying under it. There should be a tag on it, if not there's a code on the sticker in the driver door frame or on the driver door.

The axle code would help.

i had to get brakes for my ranger and when i went to autozone to get them they asked if i needed 9inch or 10 inch shoes, i wasn't sure, then the guy asked well do you have possi trac and im like um i don't think so, hes like well do both tires spin when you do a burn out, lol i was like nope, hes like well then you don't have possi track and you have 9inch shoes. so i guess that would be a fun way to tell if you had possi trac!
just my 2cents

That's no way to tell whether you have 9 or 10 inch brakes...

It's not "posi trac"

4.10's should do fine, 4.56's are ideal
