There is also a sticker on the rear diff if you look under it
Another way is to put it on jack stands, but calling the dealer would be easier. Just I case anyone wants to know how to do it here's how...
This is probably the easiest way to measure your rearend ratio, as it doesn't require removing the differential cover. Jack up the rear end of the truck (so that both rear tires are off the ground) and make a mark (or pick a spot) on both the driveshaft and a rear tire. With the transmission in neutral, spin the tire by hand through one rotation, and count the number of times the driveshaft turns. The number of driveshaft rotations is your rearend ratio. (For example, if the driveshaft turns about three and a half times, the ratio is probably 3.55. If its almost three and a quarter, the ratio is probably 3.21. Almost four times, 3.91s, etc.
The procedure above applies if you have a Sure Grip (limited slip) differential or a locker. If you have an open differential, the procedure is the same, but you will need to spin the tire through two rotations instead of just one.

anyone run into a rattling in the rear of their truck after the lift? when I drive over some rough patches i will here a slight rattling like something is loose in the back some where, Iv checked multiple times underneath and everything is tight. The only thing I can think of that could be causing the rattling is the rear spacers may be wiggling just enough to cause the rattle? where it is a shorty, could the weight difference maybe be causing it to not push down on the spacers and hold them in place tightly?

I had it as well. Could never find it. Tried replacing the rear coils. Didn't work. Then I took to RCX head quarters and they couldn't find it. The new owner claims he fixed it because a crossmember bolt was loose. But think he was making that up.

OK dropped my 07 off today for my RCX lift install. I have looked all over for this answer. What setting should I have them put the BIlsteins at to sit level 1.4 or 2.1? I searched, and searched with no clear answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

If it's a 6" lift you'll probably want them at 1.4". For a 4" lift you'll want them at 0.7".

Fast - I cant seem to find any of the bilstein or RCX products on the website, are they special order? Also I see you are from Toronto, does the company ship from Canada?

Bully's is still currently working on loading products into their new website so you probably won't find them there yet. But if you email Andrew at fastnugly@bullysperformance.com letting him know what you want he'll send you a quote and then if you want to purchase it, a custom cart link to their website with the products you want.
