96 SVT Cobra rear end ratio ?

Did all of the 96 Cobras come from the factory with the same rear end ratio of 3:23? If not what else was available and how do I tell what mine is ? Thanks, Spiney-Dave

I think stock was 3.27s. My 96 came 3.73 from the factory but that was special ordered.

You can always check. Someone correct me if I'm wrong:

Safely jack up the rear end so both tires can spin freely. Put a chalk mark on both the tire and the driveshaft. Turn the tire one complete revolution and count the number of times the driveshaft goes around. If it goes around 3 1/4 turns then you have 3.27 gears.

If the gears have not been changed there will be a tag on one of the diff cover bolts with the ratio stamped in it. If all else fails you can mark the D/S and tire and count it off.
That's unimpressive
