S10 rear axel gears
I have a 99 reg cab its 2.2l truck. This truck has the auto Trans still in it. I donít have the first idea what gear is in the rear end. I know my 5 speed truck has 4.10s in it. Does any one know how to tell the rear gear size for my truck or where I can find out?? Any info welcome thanks.

If you know it still has the original factory gear ratio, then look in your RPO code list in the glove box, then look up those codes in one of the many RPO code lists available online (there's one in this forum somewhere, even). If memory serves, the gear ratio codes often start with a "G".
If someone has changed the gear ratio after the fact, you'll have to count rotations or teeth on the gear.'98 K1500 Suburban LS 5.7 L 4L60E NV246 ARB

do the rotation method, it'll get u in the ballpark area. jack up the rear end, support on jackstands, have somebody watch the passenger side wheel and count how many rotations the drive shaft makes for one full revolution of the wheel. ex: drive shaft turns 3 and 3/4 turns for one wheel revolution, basically a 3.73:1.
