    What size rear, what Trans do I have. I would like to order on line like GM Part Direct. I gave them my Vin # they say rear cover gasket has 14 Holes, I count 10 Holes.
    I would like to order Trans Filter, Pan Gasket, rear end cover gasket.

    2011 Silverado Ext 4X4, 5.3, Z71,Z85 Pkg, 6 speed auto,trailering Pkg,Trailer Brake Controller, 18" Wheels

    Thanks

    Did you buy your truck new or pre-owned? If new, do you still have the window sticker? See if it says on there what rear end you have.
