How do you tell what gears are in an axle? I'm looking at a full floating Dana 60>

The mot acurate way is to remove the cover and the #of teeth or the ratio will be stamped on the ring gear. Or you could turn the yoke and see how many turns it takes to make one full axle rotation. If it is an open rear you have to double the turns because if only one axle shaft is turning the spider gears will double that shafts speed. That is one of the reasons not to do burn outs with an open rear, the tire is turning twice what the speedo says and the spider gears are spinning in ways they were not meant to.
