How am i supposed to know what the gear ratio is of a granada rear, I want to go with the lowest possible ratio possible so that I don't have to buy a whole new gear set if I don't have too, Im looking for something in the 3.00+ range.

If the rear axle has been untouched you may find a tag on one of the center section to housing bolts that lists the ratio. This is not always foolproof because the tag could have been switched. The best way is to count the teeth on the ring gear (larger) and divide by the number of teeth on the pinion (smaller).

Hope this helps,
