Re: Just picked up a 1996 Silverado

1500s had either an 8.5" 10 bolt rear axle or a 9.5" 14 bolt rear axle. The larger rear axle were on trucks with both the Z71 and F44. Z71 being the common offroad package that GM offered, F44 is listed as a "Heavy Chassis Package", has the larger rear axle and brakes.
