    You have to look at the sticker in the door jamb, there will be an axle code there. Then you can look up this axle code online and it will tell you what gears are in the truck.

    There is a tag on the rear end itself. Its bolted to one of the diff cover bolts.

    Re: ford truck question

    Why you wanna go lower anyway? My hemi ram has baby 3.55s. Only good for lower rpms thru normal gear shifting. I'm wanting to slap in 4.10s or 4.56 for that quicker acceleration and better fuel economy in city. True its gas vs your diesel which I guess changes the concept of gears?

    i have a v10 in the truck. its not worth the swap to go from 4.10 to 3.73 but if i had the optional 4.30s i would have. my gas millage has been slowly going down but i found the problem. i should be getting 15 on the highway but im getting 11. my back brakes are hanging up on the truck. it has 463 foot pounds torg at the crank so i dont even notice there haning up

    i went to drive the truck today and now the back brakes are pretty locked up. What would cause this? Is this a comment problem with ford trucks? I have not used the parking brake at all.

    overall im very happy with the truck once i get the kinks worked out of it.

    On my 2005 F150, there is a linkage to engage the parking brake that is located inside the rotor. It froze up at the pivot. I would look at this, and the caliper pins to make sure they side freely. It doesn't hurt to spray the cables with penatrating oil.
