You need the numbers that are on the axle tube itself. Those are just date stampings and casting numbers. The numbers you need are on the front side of the passenger side of the axle tube. Should be a couple letters and numbers.

You won't know definitively unless you pull the cover and look on the gears. I think it's usually stamped on the ring.

Jack the rear of the car up. Mark the driveshaft with whiteout. Have someone turn the tire one full rotation while you watch the driveshaft. 3 1/4 turns=3.23 gears. 3 3/4 turns=3.73. Ect.
If theres 10 bolts on the pumpkin its a 10bolt.

On the differential itself there should be a sequence of numbers and or letters and that link I posted earlier decodes those characters.
