No not thinking so, The trany from the '97 is run by a OBDII computer, the trany from the '93 is run by a OBD1 computer, plus there is a redesign between those years.


X2 on the no it won't work. You need one from a 96 or 97.


Can I use a 1999 4L60E in a 1997 K1500? Both 4x4. (99 was NOT an LS)


Bell housing and case are different. If it can work, will I use the 99 t-case adapter? Or have to swap out and use the old adapter ?

It will fit just like the 93 but it will not shift out of 2nd gear at all

It will fit but it will never come out of 2nd gear because the servos and clutches are different and it also has a different computer program because of the internal hardware
