    Default Silverado V-8 Options

    Looking for a used truck something like a 1500 LS (crew Cab) and wonder what V-8 sizes we should be looking for. I am also not familiar with a Z72 or whatever that number is on the higher rated motor.

    Comments and or links are welcome.

    Look for a 5.3L and the off road suspension package is called Z-71. If you see a truck with Z-72 on the side of it it was customized by ALC. I would say a good place to start your searching would be Good luck and welcome t0 GMTC!!

    5.3 is a solid choice. depending on what year your going after will depend on if you would want / get the 6 speed or not.
