Need rubber bushing for overload 1999 chevy silverado


If your talking about the plastic pieces that go between the leaf springs. Go to a place the sells or custom makes leaf springs. You know you have to remove and separate the springs to get them in place, right. Two bolts and two metal straps hold the springs in place.

The A/C on a 1999 Silverado 1500 blew cold one minute and the next minute it stopped blowing cold, what caused this?


Low Freon level can cause this. Do not try to refill yourself with a can. You will do more damage to it, because you have not evacuated used Freon and keep topping off externally will overload the system and spring a leak or burn the compressor out. Take it to a Shop where they will Evacuate, create Vaccum, inject Compressor oil and Dye and recharge to the require level with Freon. This way if Freon leaks you can see where the dye is coming out and fix the leak.

I need to replace rear axel on 2001 chevy silverado 1500


jack up the rear end high and place chassis rails on stands. Remove wheels . disconnect brake hose to the rear and use a hose pincher to stop brake fluid leaking out . Disconnect the hand brake cable at a convenient point ( probably at the rear of the transmission. Disconnect the drive shaft at the diff pinion and lay to one side . Place the jack under the diff housing centre and take a bit of weight. . If you have leaf springs --undo the "U" bolts around the housing . If coil springs undo the track rods by removing all the pivot bush bolts. Lower the diff housing down and pull out from under the car. Make any changes you have to, to the other diff housing before placing it on the jack and placing it under the car Reassembly is the reverse process of removal.. Bleed rear brakes on completion of the job.

The neddle is attached to the column via a thin metal wire and spring which then clips to the edge. Remove the trim above the column and look for the clip attached to the wire and a warn spot on the column and reattach it. :)
