People often wonder whether or not they can interchange Silverado and avalanche parts. Because the trucks have so many common structures- even I have stumbled upon the question myself.
The truth is, yes they do have a lot of parts that are similar in structure. And therefore, you can use the same parts for both of these trucks. For example, the headlights are the same on the avalanche and the Silverado- so they are easily interchangeable. If there is so much similarity in the structure, surely it should fit, right?
So, will Silverado fenders fit an avalanche? The short answer to this question is- yes. Silverado parts will fit the avalanche. But you have to make sure that only an expert is doing this. Otherwise, the procedure could cause more harm than any good.
Will Silverado Fenders Fit An Avalanche?
Yes, you can easily replace an avalanche fender with a Silverado one.
But only if the avalanche is non-cladded. A non-cladded avalanche can handle this replacement quite well. Otherwise, you will have to spend a lot of money working on the entire body of the truck. This can also cause the truck to look incomplete, and unfinished. The overall aesthetic is often ruined if the proper guidelines are not followed. The side profile of the truck looks quite bad when the wheels on the front fender do not match the rear ones.
The extreme adjustments can also make it look like the front fender lines don’t match with the rear ones. Therefore, it can look like half of the truck has cladding while the other half does not. The SS front fender lower belt line not lining up can be very frustrating for a lot of truck users.
Therefore, it is only recommended that you replace an avalanche fender with a Silverado one if the truck is non-cladded. Even so, you need to make sure that the procedure is being done by someone who knows what they are doing. If your drug falls onto a bad mechanic’s hand, there could be severe and irreversible damage.
Why Replace An Avalanche Fender With A Silverado One?
If you have bought an avalanche, you might be familiar with its maintenance costs. One of the main drawbacks of this truck is that the fender is extremely expensive.
An avalanche fender will cost you three times more money than a Silverado one. So, when you are on a budget, and trying to modify your truck, or fix the fender- buying an avalanche fender can be difficult.
This is one of the main reasons why people think about replacing their fenders with a Silverado one.
Replacing Fenders On A Car
You might have seen a lot of people replace the fenders of their cars. While some people do this mainly for the aesthetic, and some people do it to fix repairs, the task is very complicated. Removing the fender itself can be quite difficult.
You need the right skills and expertise to complete this replacement procedure. The mechanic will have to use a very high-quality Philips head screwdriver such as the Klein Tools 32500. Other tools such as the Dewalt Ratchet also have to be used correctly for this procedure to go well.
The tools have to be used in the right way, with the right hand if you don’t want to cause any further damage. It is only recommended that you completely replace a fender only when it is necessary. Because your car will need a lot of adjusting to the new part, there’s no saying whether it will accept it positively or negatively.
Frequent or regular repairs can be made to fenders to avoid the entire replacement procedure.
