GM Part 12471606 but local auto parts store has no way to cross reference that part number. They need to know if Diff is 7.5, 7.6, 8.5, or 8.6. Diff case tag has rusted off long ago since this Blazer spent several years in upstate NY.
NEED answer ASAP or I'm cancelling request and requesting my money back.

That bearing number crosses to a 7.625 rear axle

Thank you much. Chevy part number was from GM parts web site based on Vehicle VIN. Thanks again.

Your welcome, It really is listed as a 7 5/8th but is the 7.625. Now, if you locate the RPO code sheet maybe on the drivers door or in glovebox etc, its the 3 digit codes begining with a G as shown in this link

The RPO list lable is very handy as it has all the codes for everything one may need pertaining to the vehicle

Thanks again. I thought that the G number was reference to ratio (mine is GU6 = 3.42) also have G80 (Limited Slip). Did help me with axle bearing or "C" or "K" code.
