Squirrely posted a topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I just about peed myself when I stumbled across this truck. I have a soft spot for SWB Chevy's. A perfect replacement for my old 95. 5.3L 6 speed, 342 gears with locker. Someone put a glass pack on, sounds nice and rumbly. 41k miles.
Squirrely replied to SoCalSilvo's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service BulletinsI've had this issue on my old 95. Always felt like something bumped me when I stopped. If I threw weigh in the back, it would stop. I'm convinced it was the leaf springs.
My guess is, if they are all 10 bolt rearends, is that it will bolt on. The brakes lines probably need to be modified. I doubt brake lines for a cylinder will bolt up to the caliper. Grab a tape and mesure your spring perches, shock mounts. Any frame and axle shop can move these in needed. Also check track width. How much for the axle assembly?
The 35s and 456 gearing is on my F150. It has a 5.4l, rear end is rated same as a dana44, and the trans is a 4R70E. I don't tow much, 2000lbs usually. I've pulled my 75 c10 with this truck which is probable around 7000lbs gross with the trailer. 410 will be good for 33s. I'm a believer in 456 for 35s. Only ran my rpms up 200ish over stock with this gearing.
Real bead lock wheels are not DOT approved. You may want to look for a Sim lock. You can easily run 35" tires with the cutout flares. However, your gearing is going to suffer. Especially when towing that tractor. You will want to regear. I run 35s with 456 gearing. Best choice I ever made.

Take the classic truck area. There are 7 forums... Why not just a classic truck and a classic SUV? The complexity of all the sub forums creates orphaned topics that I feel would get answered if not so spread out. Just a thought. Not really bitching... Maybe a little... Damn it.😎
Na, no waves for me. This was the post show wrap up. We shot 2 episodes at the Market Arms in Seattle. 1 day load in, 1 day rehearsal, 1 day filming with a live audience. Never done a tv shoot before, so I was pretty psyched to work on this as my first. Not sure when the episode goes live. I have a couple photos after the air date.
