    anyone know how to tell what gears i have? I bought a set of 4.10s off this dude, barely used with the bearing kit for 80 bucks and im getting them installed next week. Just kind of curious on what kind they are. Is there anyway to tell? I thought i seen a ford symbol on the gears but its really worn down. I could snap some pics off my cell phone but there going to be pretty bad quality. Let me know. Thanx!

    lift the car from the rear, both rear tires in the air. Mark the d/s and tire. Turn the tires 1 full turn and count how many times the d/s turns. A lil more than 4x = 4.10s, a lil less than 4x = 3.73s and so on and so forth.

    BTW they usually say their ratio on the pinion gear.
