'67 Rear AxlesAll '67 Corvette rear axles are stamped with an alphanumeric identification code. The seven-digit code contains the axle-code prefix, the month and day build code, an axle plant letter suffix code, and on Posi-traction axles, a letter code stamped below the axle code to provide source information.

On the '67 Corvette IRS rear suspension the differential code is stamped on the bottom of the differential carrier housing just forward of the rear-end cover. The axle code reads from left to right. The two-letter prefix designates the gear ratio and any other specific information about the axle. The calendar month is designated by a two-number code from January (01) through December (12).

Plant CodeW = Warren MI

Posi-traction CodeE = Eaton Posi-traction differentialExample: AL-04 09 WEAL = Axle Prefix: 3.08:1 Corvette 327 Posi-traction axle04 = Month: April09 = Day: 9th dayW = Assembly Plant: WarrenE = Posi-traction source: Eaton
