I was rushing and I just didn't pay attention to that "Delete [Yes] [No]" section. I MAY have them backed up that I can get.

I have a 2007 Van w/ 6.0L engine. Wanted to change the antifreeze as the OE fluid is now 7 years old. Guess what, GM in its infinite wisdom decided to make it impossible for an owner to do this maintenance (normal for the past 8 decades).
There is no radiator drain plug
The radiator hoses have the clamps a permanent part of the hoses making removal, short of cutting off, impossible.
There is no owner removable clamp on the lower radiator hose where it connects to the radiator.

My only option is to pay a dealer $130 to do a less than optimal job as they will not use distilled water so there will be an increased chance of corrosion of the aluminum engine parts and aluminum radiator.

Are you wanting to know what gear ratio is best that is in a STOCK van... for a direct swop ?
or are you wanting to put in your after market Gear Ratio that your going to buy ?
then its really knowing what axle you have .. I know there is a 3.42 in dana 60 and 70's
and I believe that its as low as it goes..for 2500 and 3500 series vans but if you were going to install aftermarket
then You could go with as low as they make for your specific Axle.
So first.. find out what axle you have ... Sticker or tag on the Axle... decode it.
Be aware there are others things to consider.. Do you ABS ? if so then you will have to
get the computer flashed for the different gear ratio. Your speedo and sensor will always be off
and for sure cause a code and the light will stay on.
