Will a 2001 Tahoe rear end fit a 2001 Silverado 1500?

Asked by Nov 13, 2016 at 07:43 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Extended Cab LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Silverado 1500 and the axle bearing cut a whole in the rear end
housing. So we are having to replace the whole rear end. Asking will a 2001
Tahoe rear end fit?

Possibly but make sure the gear ratio is the same.

The tahoe uses could springs and the silverado uses leaf springs. You would have to cut the spring perches off both and weld the silverado ones on

The tahoe uses "coil" springs. Autocorrect strikes again...

So they both have leaf springs but one has disc brakes and one drum brakes. Is that a easy change? Same gear ratio also
