    Will a windshield from a 1989 suburban fit into a 1973 k5? Iam trying to save some money because I am broke enough as it is and my k5s window is cracked to all getup.

    They are the same size, but I believe that the 73 had the radio antena in the glass and the 89 did not.

    My 89 has the antenna in the windshield.
    You can get them either way from what I have seen.

    Thanks I will give it a try. As for the antena the truck is to loud to hear the radio anyway.

    They are the same...But when my wife got the new windshield put into my K5, the shop charged her $25 more than a pickup (same body style) and told her they were different. I guess it just shows that shops will take more money from a woman if they get a chance. Still, she got the windshield installed for $150...but I won't be going back.

    I am working on it just trying to make it go without breaking first. The windshield went in without any trouble. Thanks for the help.

    So does brand really matter for quality? Other than being DOT approved. Can you even buy non DOT approved glass?

    Anyone care to enlighten a smartazz?:bow:
