Yes, thanks. I consider my truck a Chevy, or my Chevy a GMC. Either way, there is little noticeable difference between my 77 Chevy K/20, and my 80 GMC K/25. Same chassis, same body panels, same drivetrain for the most part. Some parts, such as wheel bearings are typically larger on GMC. They seem to be more heavy duty. A friend who is a mechanic changed the bearings on his Suburban the other day, it's an 80. All the local shops said they had the bearing in stock. When he read them the number off the old bearing, turned out they didn't have it. One shop did. He got them. I then remembered 6 years ago, when I changed mine, the parts store sent over 4 different sets. They couldn't be sure which set it was, so sent one of each. Told us to send back the one it wasn't. Needless to say, I jotted down the part #.<p>~Chuck<br><p>----------<br>Chuck's Chevy Truck Pages - Snowplowing Central<br>
