A 2000 Chevy pickup has rear disc brakes. The rear differential size should be the same as yours. There will be some changes like rear brake lines that are different. But length and mounting should be the same. You need to pay attention to the gear ratios. I hope this info is what you are looking for. Please keep emailing us if you have anymore request.

Reply to culver19's Post: How do I ck the ratio of the rearend?   Are there any numbers on the outside to reference this?      What is the std ratio for my model truck?
Expert:  culver19 replied 9 years ago.
There was a few different ratios that were used for all the trucks. Some had tags on the differential cover that said the ratio. Also if you call a GM parts house the is a code on the option list (I think it was in the glove box on your truck) they can tell you your ratio.
