the 2.625 dimension is correct, and is measured from the CL of the diff (and ring gear) to the head of the pinion. (no special tools required beyond the proper length straightedge / surface and a big enough depth micrometer. the chilton number is right)
(thanks again true hi9 - i did not have a surface / straightedge that would allow me to figure out how that 4.312 dimension applies)
