Look on the tag in the door. See the AXLE code? Reply with that, or better, look at the tech article and see what gears came in the car.

As to which gears are best? What are you doing with it?

Seems like the consensus is to go 3.73 on the automatic cars, but I'm happy with the factory 3.08s in Sweetie's Cougar (if it scatted much better, she'd get into trouble with it!)

Best for drag racing? Best for street/strip? Best for around town cruising? Best for highway cruising? Best for fuel economy?

More information is needed.
