Question 1990 Mustang 5.0L LX - Gear Ratio?

I searched the forums & internet, but couldn't find it readily.

Anyone know the stock gear ratio (5 speed) that was built into the 1990 Mustang 5.0L LX?

Thanx.

Count how many times the driveshaft spins for one tire revolution. If the drifeshaft spins 2 3/4 times you have 2.73's. If it spins just slightly over 3 times you have 3.08's.

Axle Codes:

Code M = 2.73
Code Z = 3.08
Code E = 3.27 (AOD's only)

Thank you for the info, but the vehicle is long gone.
