are you keeping coils or are you putting leafs in . either way you have a lot of fabricating ahead of you.

type meaning gear ratio? If so can do a few ways...

this might help.. or
Pull open the differential cover and count the teeth on the ring gear and divide by the number of teeth on the pinion gear. For example, if we divide a ring gear with 41 teeth by a pinion gear with 10 teeth we find that the gear ratio is 4.10:1 (41/10 = 4.10).
