Part #2864S LM. Fits most 1997-1999 Chevy or GMC 1500 2X4 or 4X4 and 2500 2X4 Pickups.

If you are looking for the 2500 4X4 or the 3500 Pickups, then you need a RH-2864L-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, 2864S. If you have an 84, then you have a large housing, the RH-2864L-L/M. 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 this gear - 2864S LM4T. If you would like the quick ratio (12.7:1 Ratio) please order this gear - 2864SQW LM.

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.

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.
