Asked by Nov 15, 2015 at 08:57 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have tried to find a 4.10 rear end for a 1999 Chevy 1500 Silverado without
much luck. There seems to be a lot of 4.10 rear ends for the 2500 Silverado
available. Can I put the 2500 rear end on the 1500. The vehicle is four wheel
drive.

You can but the only problems are that 2500 axles are usually 8 bolt pattern for the rims where yours are 6. Also in 4x4 you need the same gear ratios for both axles if you have a 3.73 or a 3.42 gear ratio in your front and a 4.10 in the rear you will blow your to case to pieces 4x4 needs to be in perfect sync. Same size tires same gear ratio front and back no way around it

My 99 1500 Silverado has a 4.10. Verified by dealer. Question is will a 4.10 off a 2500 Silverado work on my 1500.
