1987 GMC G2500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

1987 GMC G2500 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your G2500's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your G2500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1987 GMC G2500 to maintain its performance power. Follow GMC's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
