GT's came with T-lok already. There should be more numbers on the tag on the rear diff that will give you the gear ratios. However, if the gears have been swapped, odds are there won't be an indicator.

Then there should be a metal tag on your rear diff with some numbers on it. Some of those numbers will give you the diff ratio.

The E you speak of, where did you pull that from?

Re: 1996 GT AXLE CODE?

Y is the code for a non limited slip 3.08 axle
Z is the code for a limited slip 3.08 axle
5 is the code for a non limited slip 3.27 axle
E is the code for limited slip 3.27 axle.

GT 5speeds got 3.08s and GT autos got the 3.27's apparently... you learn something new every day

most dont know about the 3.08 gear option upgrade they had for a few year.

Re: 1996 GT AXLE CODE?

hmm going by what ive read, its not possible to have 3.27s in a manual 96 gt... but most only mentioned 94/95 so they MAY have offered it for manuals in 96. Not much info out there for that.

You can look for a little tag on one of the bolts on the rear end cover, turn your wheel all the way one revolution and count your drive shaft rotations, or pop the rear cover lol to be 100% sure

apparently manuals had an option for 3.08s and autos 3.27s~ most seem to not know about it.

Kind of like new gts can be had with diff gear ratios most dont know that
