I have a 1994 Chevy W/T K1500 it has a 4.3 Vortec and I'm trying to figure out what gear ratio it has. My axle code is faded in the glove compartment and cannot read it. Judging by the cover it looks to be a GM 8.5 axle I have been told that model truck is geared low. It accelerates much different from a typical Z71 chevy with 5.7 it has no issues but accelerates a lot slower it is obviously not made to take off fast so I am assuming it has low gears because it's a W/T have looked everywhere and cannot figure out its gears. Anybody know the typical gear set for a 4x4 W/T truck with 4.3??
