Will a steering gear from a 03 chevy silverado 1500HD 6.0 work on a 03 chevy silverado 1500 that has had an engine swap from a 4.3 to the 6.0? I didn't know if the steering gears would be different.

Asked by Oct 08, 2014 at 11:29 PM about the 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext Cab Short Bed 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The truck originally had the 4.3L 6 cylinder
but now has the 6.0L  8 cylinder engine.
Would the parts from a 1500HD work on a
standard 1500?

The steering parts should be interchangeable as long as the parts are all 4x4 or 2wd. I don't think you can mix and match.

Will the spline count be the same on the shaft? Or will I need to get a 1500HD pitman arm for it to work? Also will all the hose ports be the same size?

I do believe its all the same. Not positive on the hose ports, though.

Alright thank you for the help it helped out alot!
