Mine (5.3L) is on the PASSENGER side underneath the engine. It has 2 bolts mounting it to the block and 2 wires on the solenoid (battery and ignition). Once you remove… the two long mounting bolts, you can wiggle it towards the front of the vehicle to remove it (it takes some doing). Remember to disconnect your battery first to prevent any shorts. Answer Battery side of engine low on the engine.
Answer yes, Z71 is the designation for the "offroad package", inc. shocks and skid plates, etc. That is true, But make sure tha…t someone did not just go down to a swap meet and buy Z71 stickers and just stick it on the rear quarter panels. I have seen many 2 wheel drive Silverados with the Z71 emblems on them because a lot of people think it makes there truck look " COOL ". The best to tell if it is a 2wd or 4wd is to look at the 5th letter of the VIN C=2wd K=4wd

There are four ways to find a ratio. 1 A dealer can normally tell from the vin number. 2 There are normally tags or labels on the axle that have part number, gear ratio, a…nd fluid requirement info. 3 You can count how many times you have to turn the driveshaft to get one complete turn of the tires. 4 You can divide the number of teeth on the ring gear and divide by number of teeth on the pinion.

I have a 1996 Z71 with a vortec 350. It has a new battery and starter but turns over very hard. I can get it to start with a jump but not without. What am I overlooking?
Z71 is an options package which included skid plates on the underside of the vehicle, and I believe it had different shocks, as well.
