Thread: basic question

  1. #1

    Default basic question

    First I just bought a 98 silverado or k1500. I am not sure if it is considered a silverado or a k1500? It has the z71 package but I don't knowwhat to call it? Second It seems like everything is bigger on this truck. Every time i look for parts such as brakes or ball joints it's always the bigger size. Any thoughts?
