Question about 1994 Chevrolet K1500
Hi there skylar,
While I can certainly walk you through it, my advise would be hit an auto parts stor and pick up a Haynes manual for your Make/Model/Year.

If you are the least bit nervous about handling airbags, DON'T. They are designed to be solidly mounted when they detonate. The housing is about 6 pounds of solid steel which would be propelled by the deployment charge in the opposite direction that the bag is facing.
An accidental unmounted deployment can be lethal.
Take the precautions seriously
