    Hmmm...since it's not an HD I'm gonna say a GM Corporate 12 bolt.

    It should be a GM Corporate 14-bolt. Does the hub of the axle stick through the center of the rear tires, or is it flush with the face of the tire? If the hub sticks through, you have the full-floater version, if it's flush, it's the semi-floater version.
