No, I inspected the axle from the outside. Sometimes there's an axle tag on the outside of the axle describing what the ratio is but mine does not. I haven't opened the diff yet.

Yes, I'm sorry. I worded it wrong but you understood what I was saying. I meant it feels like it should be geared lower. I might have to do what you said and try that old trick. It may be my only...
