Ok, it going to be in the RPO numbers, regular production options, numbers. But there is a way to determine what gear ratio you have in there. Mark the drive shaft to a stationary point, and the tire to a stationary point. Rotate the wheel around one revolution and see how many times the drive shaft turns, paying attention to where it ends up, like 1/4, 3/4 turn. Hear is a sight explaining this better... http://www.badasscars.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=398/category_id=13/mode=prod/prd398.htm
