How can I determine what rear end gearing is in my 2002 CVPI?

Thanks,

for a 02 I would say most likely 3:27's..

that is the standard for pretty much all P71's except the 99-00 MY's.

Depends on the year..

all P71's come factory with 3:27's unless it is a 99 or 00 MY..

Best way to tell is use the axle tag..



last line will be one of the following

3 27 = 3:27's open
3L27 = 3:27's w/trac-loc
3 55 = 3:55's open
3L55 = 3:55's w/trac-loc

I can't find the axle tag on mine... what is the code for the door that FireRescueTyler was talking about. I do have a very nicely intact door sticker....
I need to find out ASAP as my car has been up on jack stands for the last 3 weeks looking for a rear end. The axle bearings went on me and chew the axles to hell.

Thank you very much. I checked it out and it says 3.27 locker.
The scrap yard I deal with is trying to sell me a 3.55, now I know this will not work for me. I will keep looking.

You can use 3:55s as long as the gears are from an 8.8 spline ...if nothin else...you'll notice the take offs more

So the take off's will be slower?
Are the 3.55 gears taller than the 3.27 gears?

I really just need the axles and the pin that holds the gears in. Can I use from a 3.55 or will they be different? I don't want to spend the money and find out totally different and wasted my money. I can't afford the $300 an axle that the Ford dealer wants.
Thank you for everyone's help with this

If you only need axle shafts and bearings buy them from rockauto.com they have axle shaft and bearing kits for $127 per side. Plus if you use the CVN discount you can save another 5%

Thank you to everyone that helped out! I have replaced the entire rear end and come to find out it must have been done before and had 305 gears in it! I have the 327 gearing now and oh my goodness does it fly!
Thanks again!

He probably 3.08 which was available in the older panthers.

Are you talking about the '98?
