All About 1987 GMC R2500 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your R2500's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your GMC, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1987 GMC R2500 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following GMC's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
