Jack up the rear end and count it. Axle rotation/wheel rotation=gear ratio

All this of course means you have already looked for the decal in the glove box first right?

Get a build sheet or jack up the rear, put a mark on the driveline and a peice of tape on the wheel. Get to where you can see the driveline and spin the wheel slowing 360 and count the number of times the driveline mark goes around, 3.5 or 3.75 or 4 about then you know. Oh and if you wheel spin the same direction you have a LSD if they go opposite its open.
