Default Gear ratio

Are the Gear ratios the same on the 2000 SE and SLE?

Depends on what Model and what Option package it has... You will need to locate the RPO code listing... we have seen 2000+ Bonnie SE'* with either a 2.83 or 3.05 Gear ratio... The 3.05 is more performance oriented and the 2.83 if more fuel economy oriented...

F83 for the 3.05 Ratio Look on the spare tire cover and see if you have the F83..

FWIW a '00+ should be either a 3.05 or 3.08 (can't remember what it is) or 3.29. Its not gonna be a 2.83.
