I am a little surprised at this question 4x4 chevy trucks in this series do not have I-beam axles
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 8 years ago

Hi 9sxacrut,

I'm sorry I did not see that 4x4, 7 Grand kids over, and on my lap, loosing reading.

Any way I thought you may have had leaf springs, the is a biggie, on popping noise spring shackles

Thanks, Wayne Cool
