I opened my rear differential and gave it a good cleaning. All I found inside was a very thin layer of dirt as sediment in the gear oil. With the diff cover off, I was able to count the splines on the pinion and the ring gear. The ring gear splines = 41 and the pinion = 11, so 41/11 = 3.73 rear differential.
I removed the rear brake assemblies, backing plate and emergency brake cables. After cleaning things up a bit, I have all new components ready to install. In order to get the backing plates off, I had the remove the axles.
So many good thing have happened, I don't know where to begin. The pictures tell it all.
