Rear End

While browsing through the specs for my Expedition EL, I read that it should be equiped with the 3.73 rear end. Then I read that, that, rear end is discontinued. If I remember correctly, I should be able to discern from the vin what rear end I have. What would be the code for that?

Second line from the bottom on the VIN plate. Here's mine:

Axle = 16 = 3.73

Click the image to open in full size.

Can anyone translate the other data? I figured out the 119" wheel base.

build date 02/07, gvw = weight. separated into front, and rear below the total. tire size/rims size and recommended psi.

ext pnt= exterior paint code
int tr= interior trim code
spr= spring code(1st 2 digits front springs, last 2 digits rear springs.

thats the extent of my knowledge!
