2002 Chevy Silverado Rear End Differential

I have a GT4 G80 rear end differential. I know the GT4 is the ratio and the G80 is a rear locking differential. I am having issues finding a rear end so I can pull the differential. I found a 2002 GMC Sierra that has the GT4 ratio but not the G80. Does it matter as long as I have the correct ratio? I just don't want to waste money on a part that will ...

4wd to 2wd

Today on my way home from visiting family, I anticipated some bad, icy road conditions so I had my truck in 4HI...After some time on the road, it began to smell almost like burnt rubber... I switched from 4wd to 2wd while moving, and I think that severely messed my truck up. The back tires completely locked up and I had to pull to the side of the road. While I was waiting for ...

I have a 2010 Silverado 4.8l with 3.42 gears. Running a 7.5" lift and 35x12.50 on 20x12. I'm getting horrible gas mileage and no power. I was told to go to 4.10,4.56,4.88. What would be best. What all is required to change this. Do I need a new carrier for the front or rear if I change gear ratio? It has a g80 pos trac, would that need to be changed or is it okay ...

Going to 33's, 3.73 or 4.10?

12 GMC Sierra 5.3L, 3.42 gears and 6 speed 6L80. 2.3" level (bilstein + 1/4" bottom spacer) and add a leaf. Diablo 87 tune and trans firm tune. Probably gonna do a 1.25 body lift as well. The diablo tune helped a lot, but it has its limitations it seems. Also Im going to be doing a catback soon.

Gonna go from P metric 265/70/17 to LT285/70/17. Thinking I could get away with 3.73, but ...

Hey folks, I have a 1990 k1500 with a manual transmission. The transmission was replaced at some point out of a 1995, the motor was also pulled from a different year Silverado.

My question is this...If I were to get a driveshaft from a 1995 would ...

Manual Trans Swap Manual Trans Swap

I was recently thinking about swapping a manual trans into my truck. I have been a mechanic/technician for a while and I have swapped a few different transmission but only in older vehicles. The truck is a 2006 Chevrolet 1500 WT with the 4.8l engine. I price out a ton of parts and decided to look to see if there was room for a clutch master cylinder. With how big the brake booster is I ...
