Trouble Identifying Axle Code.

Im having trouble identifying what axle ratio is in my T-bird, its a 97 3.8 and the code is F5....

There is no info in the chart for this code and im really confused as to what this car has..


Any help would be appreciated.

You have 3.27 gears. Whether or not it is a trac-lok is the variable. You must be looking in the wrong spot because the code will either be 5 for open and E for trac-lok.

Hmm...don't know why there is an "F" there but you have a 3.27 open. All 96/97 MN12s came with 3.27 gears.
