Yes. As long as both trucks are 1/2 tons and not diesel (if it is Diesel or 3/4 ton let me know). It will bolt in but there are differences. The '89 should have a 700r4/4L60 4 spd (some came with the turbo 350 3 spd) and the '94 should have a 4L60e with the stand alone TCU (tranny control unit) on the inner fender to control it. You will need to grab the linkages and cable brackets off of the '89. The 700r4/4L60 requires a T/V (throttle valve) cable from the throttle linkage on the throttle body to the tranny. The turbo 350 requires a kick down cable like the T/V mentioned and you will need to run a vacuum line from the intake down to the back of the tranny. The stock 4L60e uses the TPS (throttle position sensor) once converted tape up the connector for the tranny as the TCU could be used in the future or sold as parts. CAUTION: Ensure you setup the T/V cable correctly - improper adjustment is a leading cause of tranny failure.
