Rear End Serial Number

Where on the rear end do I find the serial number / partial vin? We're going to pull the rear to replace the bearings and seals since it has a leak and I thought this would be a good time to see if its the born with rear end. We confirmed the engine and trans a few years ago and would love to confirm the rear end too.

The rear axel was not serialized to the car. The best you can hope for is on the axel ID tag the date code is a month or two before your build date.

+1. The axle tag slips over one of the studs that mounts the third member and then held in place with the retaining nut. It will show build date and axle ratio.

Thanks, I thought I heard that before but I hoped it wasn't true.
