Download DESCRIPTION The axle has a banjo-type housing with a removeable carrier. The drive pinion is straddle mounted on removeable carrier. There is no adjustment for drive pinion depth or bearing preload. The preload on the differential side bearings is set by adjusting nuts on which the bearing cups rest. The differential has a two-piece case and four differential pinion gears. AXLE RATIO & IDENTIFICATION The 12 1/4″ ring gear axle assembly is the only one on General Motors vehicles that has a removeable carrier. The axle ratio can be determined by dividing number of ring gear teeth by number of drive pinion teeth
