1500HD vs. 2500

Gentlemen,, I've been told that a 1500HD is the EXACT same truck, inside and out, as a 2500. Please advise,,, is this true? If so, does that mean the transmission is heavier and will pull a horse trailer (7200lbs loaded w/horse and water and gear) easily?
thanks in advance,
Ms. Tina

Possible solution to rough downshifting trans

I have a 2012 Silverado, 5.3, 4x4. ext cab, long bed.
Since I've had it... at lower speeds 40-45, if you push the gas about 1/2 way down to accelerate, it would sometimes buck very violently.. as if it dropped the gear to pass, but delayed getting into the throttle a sec or so.
Sometimes a clank.. or loud noise would accompany this...

Well, I noticed that if you had the cruise control set at ...

U joint not matching Vin

I have a 2005 silverado 1500 extended cab 6.5ft bed 4x4. The rear u joint was noisy and wouldn't pass inspection and the one that I bought under my vin was way to large, the cups where visibly larger. And the only one that kinda matched was the middle joint from a quadrasteer silverado. Any suggestions? The only modifications I know of when I bought it was a 2 inch rear lift and shocks all ...

How much will the 4l60e take?

I've taken in my truck (05 Sierra 1500 5.3/4l603/4x4/136k miles) and the mechanic said the transmission seemed to be in good condition.

Since we are using this as our tow rig for our 31 foot camper (7k lbs loaded) and do not have the funds for a new rig right now I want to do everything I can to protect the transmission currently and look at upgrades down the road.

I am purchasing a cluster ...

Do New Running Gears Need To Be Broke In?

I recently had my 3.23 gears in my 2005 GMC Sierra 5.3L swapped out for 4.10 gears. The shop that did the work wants me to put 500 miles on them with short distance, non-highway runs and cool off periods in between frequently for the first 100 to 200 miles. A friend of mine who has been around cars quite a bit says he's never heard of it.

What's the skinny?

Driver front axle shaft play and leakage

Ok, first off, my truck is a 2011 Sierra. The axle stub shaft that slides into the differential has some play and is starting to leak. I know if you knock the stub shaft out, you can remove the seal, but can you also remove the bearing as well? I really don't want to have to drop the diff and open up the case just to change that bearing. Can it be done with the ...
