    Attempting to get into the stock replacement parts category of carparts.com, here's what I got:

    <blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>



    Everything you need to repair and maintain your car, truck or SUV.

    1988 Chevrolet K1500 Blazer 4WD V8-5.0L 305cid F/I VIN H

    There are no parts currently available for your vehicle. Please select another product category or another vehicle.


    <hr></blockquote>
    Not to mention there was no selection available for the 5.7l...

    Pretty funny, huh? Guess I'm gonna have to go get used wheel bearings/rotors/pads/shoes... Almost like the counter girl that insisted the part in my hand that came out of the truck could not be the right part because it didn't match the part her computer suggested...

    LOL, good idea, I should've saved the page... I guess I can just go back to it...

    You might need a cookie for that though...

    Not very versatile in vehicle selection. Can't get a very close match to my truck.

    According to the books and info I have, my truck came with a 360, I have a 390, and never came with a 460.
    They say mine has a 460 /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    See what Keith (Kpanza) can hook you up with.... you get a discount being a CK5 member... might have the things and save you cash. Not to mention dealing with Keith is a pleasure and he is helpful... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    you mean that you don't have another vehicle to select from/forums/images/icons/smile.gif. i guess they think it's easier to change your vehicle than a bearing.
