The upper one that the leaf springs block only has to be removed if you're replacing the caliper, and in that case unbolt the 2 hex head bolts and remove the entire assembly. In 1999 Chevrolet released a new pickup bearing a familiar name: the Silverado. Standard for the 2500 is a solid Vortec 6. Run that low, the pinion bearing will have to depend on splash for lubrication. It's at 165K miles and runs pretty well.

However for owners of 2003 models, one needs to check to see what color the vent hose connector is in the differential, as it could go either way. If you fluid is blue when you drain it then you can't put regular Dextron in. Because frequent maintenance enhances the efficiency, performance and resale value of your car, we encourage you to follow our schedule. I'm going to hit up the local parts store today to buy some supplies and get this done this week. I've towed 7,200 lbs extensivly in +95 heat with no problems. Remember, on a rear end without a drain plug allways remove the fill plug first. Important: Front axle assemblies with a vent hose connector assembly that is white in color do not need to be changed.
Again this site is awesome, do a search and you can find a ton of great information on here. My 1996 Chevy truck comes with a breather hose on top of the rear differential housing. I would really like to buy a cheaper product if it will do the same job. For the number of times you would change out the fluid the cost is minimal. This condition would be noticed in parking lot maneuvers, turning, or during locking differential engagement and may be more noticeable when the differential is hot. I think it's supposed to be 40 N-m, which is 30 ft.

Keeping the axle topped off will keep the pinion bearing immersed in gear oil. I have read that with my G80 locker I don't need any additives. At 100K plus miles, that's pretty impressive.
I know that gear fluid is needed, but not sure if I need something different due to the fact that it has the G80 and possibly limited slip? At least my autotac did. I read on another post that dirt entering the right rear wheel area causes the brake pads to wear extremely fast on that wheel, and that seems to be exactly whats happening to me. Pull both left and right tires remove retaining bolts to axles on both sides have grease pans ready to catch grease depending if it has read cover or you have… put a drain pan under the diff, unbolt the diff cover and pry it loose, oil will come out. Did them again a year later with about 12,000 miles on it. The fluid looked like silver paint. I've had to replace a couple of window motors, the switch for the door locks has broken 3 times, and it's on its 3rd alternator.
During service repairs and maintenance, inspect the drain plug for large metal deposits. Fluid capacity depends on the transmission on your vehicle, it should be stamped on the transmission pan.

I've done many brake jobs, and calipers seizing is fairly rare, however my rear brakes started seizing and I'm sure it's a design flaw.
I had to copy that by hand so I'm not exactly sure how old it was when I did it. Okay listen up, it depends if you have a locking differential or not, if you have a locking differential do not add friction modifier because you will ruin the clutches, if it is a locking differential in other words posi-traction use your standard 80W-90, and if it is not a lockup use 75W-140 synthetic gear oil the front will take about 2qt and the rear will take almost 3qt, you may have to call the dealer give them your Vin number and have them tell you if you have locking differential or not. I do have the limited slip rear diff. Use 75-90 for light applications, or 80-90, possible higher for heavy duty applications like racing. Heres what i know about Chevy brakes. This is a result of the normal chemical process that occurs as the additive package in the fluid degrades.
While I want to bring these services up to date, I do so with a touch of trepidation. I have touched the brakes lightly to stop the wheelspin,and it will lock right up. My heavy equipment runs with immersed seals and I've had 2 seal leaks in 20 years Bad seal from new. That would be your best bet since it is easy to get and if you think about it cost isn't all that bad. I believe its meant to tell the consumer that additional additive is not required above and beyond that which is already found in gear oil. .

Even if the gears aren't over-heated, the fluid will be shot for its lube qualities. Don't know why it has to be so confusing, but if anyone is buying plugs in the future the 41-985 listed in a post above is 41-110 at some of the retail outlets. Adding friction modifier additive can cause a loss of locking differential functionality.
