I have a question about rear end ratios. What is the difference between a rear
end that is
a 3.55 and a 3.73. Which is the lower geared ratio of the two. Also what are
the pros and cons. Any help is appreciated.

3.73 is the lower gear ratio. The higher the
numbers numerically the lower the gears. with
stock sized tires the 3.73 gears give you great
low end accceleration. Your around town driving
would be greatly improved. 3.73 gears on the
highway would be a bit different. You'd be revving
a little higher than your used to at highway
speeds. This would decrease mileage slightly. If
your running larger tires the 3.73 or even 4.11
are a must.

Eric,

I've got the same problem with my 87 B2, the antilock light comes on and
turns off regularly (108K miles). I wonder if it's a service thing where
something has to be reset.

Let me know what you find out cus that bright yellow light get's annoying at
night!:)

Tom

you problely need a rabs valve cost is about $240.00 dealer item only.
can only recieve codes from abs computer while light is on. abs module
has no memory which means if you turn key off you lose the code. to get
code you first go under dash on driver side and look for diagnostic pig
tail.either ground the pig tail or jump the pig tail. colors of wires
may vary to year of vehicle color may be orange with gray connector or
to black wires with the same pigtail note this may be taped to wire
harness. after grounding circuit for about a sec count the flashes. give
me a code # an i can tell you what it means
