It's really difficult to replace the lock cylinder on the silverado without being able to turn the lock cylinder with a key. You pretty much have to destroy the lock cylinder to get it out and if you aren't careful you can also ruin the cylinder hosing and end up having to replace it too. This can end up costing you a couple hundred dollars.

Do you have a chevy dealer nearby?
