Part #2864L LM. Fits most 1997-1999 GMC, Chevy or Cadillac 2500 4X4 and 3500 2X4 or 4X4 SUVS.

If you are looking for the 1500 2X4 or 4X4 or 2500 2X4 SUVS, then you need a RH-2864S-L/M. The difference between these two is whether you have a small or large housing. To see which one you have, there are casting numbers on the housing. If you have an 83, then you have a small housing, the RH-2864S-L/M. If you have an 84, then you have a large housing, the 2864L. If you order a 2864L (84 Housing) and return a 2864S (83 Housing), you will only be refunded partial core credit.

This gear is a 15:1 ratio and is stock. If you would like an 18:1, please order the 2864L LM4T..

Red-Head offers a porting option for those that are either already running a hydraulic assist steering, or plan to in the future. If you choose to make this upgrade to the box (from the drop down menu), your gear box will come with two pre-drilled and tapped ports with plugs. For clarification, hydraulic assist is NOT something your vehicle would have come from the factory with, rather it is an upgrade that adds a hydraulic ram to the steering linkage to aid in steering. Most vehicles do NOT have this option, thus if you are unsure if you have it, you probably do not.


OPTION 1: You can accept it, which means you will be charged for the
part AND the core at time of purchase. You still have the option to
send it back, and if you do, the core will be refunded back on the card
used, presuming the core meets core criteria and the core is returned
within 21 business days from originally receiving your order. If you
have outstanding circumstances that would not allow the return to occur
within 21 days, please contact us.


OPTION 2: You can defer the core charge. If you defer it, you will
not be charged a core at time of purchase. You will have 21 business
days from the day you receive it to send it back. As long as the core is
received within the 21 business days, you will not be charged. If 21
business days goes by and you do not send it back, the card on file will
be charged the core amount. You still may send it back, and once
received, we will issue the core amount as in store credit, pending any
limitations as set forth by the manufacturer. Core deferral is limited to payment by credit card only.

You have the option for us to include a pre-paid return label. with the shipment for ease of returning your core. With this option, you will merely need to drop the re-packaged core with accompanying shipping label off at a UPS drop-off. Otherwise, it will be your responsibility to supply your own means of returning the core. Pre-paid return label option is only applicable to the lower 48 contiguous United States. Please contact us if you have any questions.
