My 89 gmc repair thread
My truck hates me right now. I keep finding more and more broken stuff on it.
About 3 months ago the tranny in my truck quit shifting above 2 gear and I was at school so it sat around for awhile. When I got home two weeks ago I moved it and started to lose my brakes :banghead3 just my luck. It appears that I may have got water in my brake fluid somehow and/or my master cylinder is going bad.
I started to get the truck up in blocks so I could pull the tranny and then I found the driver side u-bolts are both broken so I am going to replace all four while I'm fixing most of the broken stuff.
I will update this and add more as I fix stuff or find more broken stuff

OOO that blows. Seems like everything tends to go at once though.
If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar

I started to work on getting the tranny out. I got the rear driveshaft out and then tried to remove the front driveshaft from the transfer case. Unfortunately though when I had the front seal replaced last year they used and impact gun to put the bolts in and really really torqued then down. I couldn't even budge them with the ratchet and a small breaker bar.

You need a big breaker bar and a long cheater pipe. But give them a nice bath of PB Blaster or something first....

Just call it a project and start from ground up. It appears there is much rust so replacing and painting may be the best thing for the old girl.2010 Chevy Silverado Z71 ext cab.4x4
