There should be a tag on the rear that tells you the weight. It is probably sythetic oil. If there is no tag, call any Chevy dealer, ask for service dept. and they will tell you.

I have a '99 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4. It has a bad vibration in the front-end. I've changed all U-joints and have rotated the tires, but it still has a bad vibration. Does anybody have an idea what the...


It sounds like you may have lost a weight on one of the tires that balaces it. If so and if you rotated the tires to the rear and rear to front then the vibration would come from the rear. If you only switched the two front tire with each other it would still be in the front. I would start by having the two front tires re-balanced and see what happens. if this doesn't work then it may be a wheel berring going out on you. Keep me informed, Raz

The transfer case uses two types of oil one is automatic fluid the front part of differential takes gear oil 85/120 wt. both differentials I would use synthetic oil and would run 85/120 however if the rig has been well used you might want to go with a higher weight oil oil so you don't get wheel seal leaks.

Chevy Transfer Case


The most common thing to go wrong with chevy transfercase is the rear tailshaft has a snap ring that breakes. Just remove the bolts holding it on and inspect the shaft and see if the snap ring is broken.Then just replace it with a new on from the dealer.
