1994 Chevrolet Questions and Answers


  • How to Determine Hanger Spacing for Tandem Axle Trailer Suspension with 26 Inch Springs
  • Thank you for providing the specs for the suspension components that you already have. Correct hanger spacing really depends on the components being used such as springs, hangers and equalizers. Most of the hanger spacing dimensions that we have are based on our preassembled kits, so we will use that as a foundation for your setup. First, I would either replace all of the front and rear hangers with 2-1/2 inch tall hangers like part # 115918 or replace just the center hangers with 2-1/2...

  • How to Wire a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 1994 Chevrolet C/K Pickup
  • To wire a 7-Way trailer connector at the rear of your 1994 Chevy pickup, you will need to start with a working 4-way connector, item # 118315, if your truck is not already equipped with one. You would then use the 4 Pole to 7 Pole and 4 Pole Adapter, item # 37185, and plug in the 4-Way on the truck to provide the stop turn and tail light functions in the adapter. If you do not need the brake control feed wire, 12 volt power wire or backup wire for your trailer you can tie one or all...

  • Trailer Running Lights Not Working When Using a 7-Way to 4-Way Adapter
  • It sounds like you have a 7-Way and are using a 7 to 4-Way adapter because the trailer has a 4-Way flat. If the running lights are not working with this set up, the first thing you will want to do is use a circuit tester, like # 3808 if needed, and test the vehicle side connector with no adapter installed in it. If the running light circuit is not working at the connector you know there is a problem on the vehicle side and you will need to trace the wiring from the trailer connector...

  • Rear Ramp Door on Pace Enclosed Trailer Does Not Open or Close All the Way with Hinge Springs
  • It sounds like there could be something bent either on the ramp itself, the body of the trailer or the spring or hinge pin. You could replace the hinge type springs with an enclosed ramp spring system such as # ERS120D81 at 81 inches wide and 120 pound capacity but if something is bent then it will still have the same issues. We also have the enclosed springs in different sizes: # ERS160D96 is 96 inches wide, 160 pound capacity # ERS80S66 is 66 inches wide, 80 pound capacity # ERS80S96...

  • Is Welding Required to Install Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-384-00
  • The over-under conversion kit, # K71-384-00, is a bolt on kit, welding is not required for installation but the manufacturer instructions state that tacking the spring seat is strongly recommended. This kit is designed for 2-3/8 inch diameter axles. We also have a kit for 3 inch diameter axles, # K71-385-00. When lifting your trailer keep in mind that the geometry of the trailer will change. You may have a lower or heavier tongue weight, and the trailer may become top heavy, which can...

  • Trailer Lights Go Out on Starcraft Popup When 1994 Chevrolet Blazer Parking Lights are Turned On
  • We should start with the connector on the trailer. If it is wired as you have stated, looking at the wires inside the trailer end connector, left turn and right turn switched, power and ground wires switched and trailer brake and running light circuit switched, then this could very well be the whole problem as the connector is not wired or grounded properly. Use a circuit tester, item # 3808 if needed, and the photos on our wiring page (see link) to determine if the wiring is correct and...

  • Available Trailer Jack Caster Wheels
  • You can see all of our available jack caster wheel assemblies on the linked page. These fit on a 2-inch-diameter jack tube, such as # BDCP555. If you can find a brand name or part number on your jack that will help to narrow down the correct parts, but as long as the tubing diameter matches up you should be fine using a different brand of wheel. We have plastic wheels in various dimensions, such as the 6-inch # JC-101 and also a steel wheel # JC-102.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 1994 Chevy K2500 4x4
  • According to Draw-Tite, the Front Mount Receiver, # 65005, will fit your 1994 Chevy K2500 4x4. I have included a link to the installation details for you to view. For any accessories you may put in the hitch, I recommend the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, # 40107, to secure them in the hitch and deter theft. I have included a link to a video review of the lock for you.

  • Front-Mount Trailer Hitch for 1994 Chevrolet C/K Series 1500 Pickup
  • A front-mounted hitch sure does make life easier when its time to move your trailer around. For your 1994 Chevrolet C/K Series 1500 Pickup you can use Curt's front-mount hitch # 31042 for a no-drilling installation (as long as your frame does not measure 34-inches outside to outside). If you prefer a lower-cost option we offer the Draw-Tite # 65005. This does require some drilling and fascia trimming for installation and you'll need a license plate relocation bracket too, part # 5443.

  • Equipping 1994 Chevy Suburban with 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller
  • To convert the 4-pole flat trailer connector on your Suburban to a 7-way, you will need an adapter like part # 37185. Assuming that the brakes on the trailer are electric, you will also need a brake controller, like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. You will also need a brake controller installation kit, part # ETBC7. The install kit will include everything needed to install a brake controller, even the adapter I mentioned above. I will link you to the instructions for the Brake...

  • Engine Oil Cooler Mounting Location Options for a 1994 Chevy Camaro
  • I own a 1998 Pontiac Trans Am and have a very large transmission cooler plus an underhood ram-air kit (Fast Toys Ram Air) that blocks about 50% of the direct air flow that would go through the radiator and I have had no cooling problems. The cooling fans on our F-body cars are very powerful for cooling the radiator fluid and you should not have a problem with airflow through the radiator. Also, our bottom breather style radiators are very efficient. You will notice that most modern cars...

  • Where to Connect a Trailer Brake Controller Red Wire on a 1994 Chevy K1500 Z71
  • In order to find the correct wire on the brake switch to connect to the red wire on a brake controller, you will need to use a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed. Probe the wires on the brake switch located above the brake pedal. You are looking for the wire that shows a signal only when the brake pedal is pressed and not also with the headlights or turn signals. Once you have found the correct wire attach the brake controller red wire to it. There is another option. On some 90s...

  • What Do I Need to Stop Excessive Trailer Sway on a 4,500 Pound Trailer Behind a 1994 Chevy Suburban
  • It sounds as if you have already taken care of a few issues that can cause excessive trailer sway. Eliminating some of the weight on the rear of the trailer can certainly help. You will also want to make sure your trailer is as level as possible when towing. Move as much weight as possible forward of the trailer axles. The ideal weight distribution would be 60 percent on the front, and 40 percent on the rear. If all this is taken care of, and you still experience trailer sway, you will...

  • Compatibility of Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch with Long Bed Pickup
  • You are correct that a sliding 5th wheel hitch is necessary for short bed applications. A sliding hitch can still be used in a long bed so long as the hitch remains in the forward locked position at all times. This is required to keep the trailer's king pin weight over or slightly forward of the rear axle centerline. If the trailer's tongue weight were any further back than that your head lights could start pointing upward and your rear end sag. For your current truck, the 1994 Chevrolet...

  • Tailgate Assist Recommendation for a 1994 Chevy K1500
  • I have a tailgate assist option that would work on your 1994 Chevy K1500 as long as it's not a stepside, but the part # DZ43301 is only designed for new Dodge trucks so I cannot recommend it for you. Instead you would want the Tailgate EasyLift # 74211. I attached a review video for you to check out.

  • Determining the Function of a Wire Labeled YEL FEED BRK SW on a 1994 Chevy C/K2500
  • The wire you are referring to is probably the center high mount stop light wire or CHMSL. This wire would be used for a third brake light function for example on a camper shell. You can test it by using a circuit tester like the Quickee # 3808. If the wire shows a signal only when the brakes are pressed, and not when the turn signals are on or flashers are engaged, then it is the CHMSL. If it does show a signal with the blinkers and flashers then it is a taillight brake light wire that...

  • Mounting Bracket for a Dexter Predator DX2 Brake Controller

  • Catalytic Converter Recommendation for a 1994 Chevrolet Camaro V6 3.4 Liter
  • The catalytic converter that I would recommend for your 1994 Chevrolet Camaro V6 3.4 Liter is the MagnaFlow Stainless Steel Direct-Fit Catalytic Converter, # MF23494. This converter was specifically designed to fit your vehicle for an easy bolt-on installation and eliminating the need for welding or drilling during the installation. This converter will use the factory hanger locations and flanges and is EPA approved for Canada and all states except California. Just in case you were...

  • How Do I Know What Bumper I Have on My Truck
  • Some of the 1994 Chevrolet K2500 pickups came with a deep bumper and others came with a more common standard or step bumper. I have included a link to an FAQ page on bumper types. Take a look at the page and you will be able to tell what bumper is on your truck.

  • Can Brake Assemblies have the Magnet Mounted on Top of the Assembly
  • Typically brake assemblies mount with the magnet at the bottom of the assembly and the actuating arm pointing forward toward the direction of travel. I can't see it in the picture but there should be a mounting flange that the assemblies attach to on the axle. You should be able to unbolt the assemblies from the flange and rotate them 180 so that the magnet is facing the right direction. Otherwise if the assemblies are working adequately you would want to just leave them be. You would...

  • Troubleshooting Electric Brake Controller Not Functioning with Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator
  • The Draw-Tite I-Command Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional # 5535 could possibly be bad since you have a read out for normal braking, but no manual override or braking taking place. However, I don't believe this controller is compatible with EOH systems. You can test it and see if it is functioning correctly or if you may have a bad wire using # 3808 to test the brake output wire about 6 inches behind the controller. If you have power when you hit the brake pedal and...

  • Towing Capacity of 1994 Chevrolet C/K Series 3500 V8
  • Towing capacity for your 1994 Chevrolet 3500 pickup will depend on several factors, including engine displacement, transmission (2x4 or 4x4), cab style and bed length. If you have the owner's manual for the truck that is the best place to check since that manual should reflect the capacities of the actual equipment in your particular truck. I reviewed a GM document that indicates a maximum towing capacity of 10,000-lbs for V8 3500s and a minimum rating of 8K. You can also check the...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 1994 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 6-1/2 foot bed
  • The installation rails of the Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation Kit # 6300-4440 will be below the bed of your truck but the plate with the gooseneck ball will be above the bed. I apologize for the confusion. This hitch is confirmed to fit your 1994 Chevy Silverado with a 6-1/2 foot bed also.

  • Availability of Quick Chrome Trailer Hub Cover for 5 on 5-1/2 Wheel Bolt Pattern
  • Although we don't have a hub cover that's compatible with a 5 lug on 5-1/2 inch bolt circle, I might have a solution that would dress up your wheels. If you could reply with the diameter of the pilot opening in your wheels and the diameter of your wheel studs, you could use a Wheel Center Cap like # 319EZ. When used with some chrome lug nuts such as # 12CLN. The center cap and lug nuts would really improve the appearance of your wheels.

  • Trailer Brake Controller Causes Brake Lights on 1994 Chevy Truck to Come On with Truck Off
  • If you disconnect the red wire from where it is connected to the truck and the problem stops then that indicates a problem along that red wire. The red wire tells the brake controller you are stepping on the brakes but when you use the manual override without the brake pedal it sends voltage on the red wire to light up the brake lights on the truck. If there is a short inside the brake controller that could be why this is happening. You would have to replace the brake controller in that...

  • Will Draw-Tite Hitch # 75099 Interfere With Spare Tire on 1994 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Truck
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2 Inch, part # 75099, will not interfere with mounting your spare tire on your 1994 Chevrolet 1500. The Draw-Tite hitch mounts to the frame rails, and does not interfere with lowering or raising the spare tire into place. To install the hitch it may be required to lower the spare tire as the instructions state, but our installers managed to install the hitch on a 1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 without lowering the spare...

  • Converting Existing Hydraulic Brakes on Trailer to Electric Drum Brakes
  • I've linked you to our FAQ article that shows what's involved with adding electric brakes to a trailer. To provide you with specifics, I'd need to know the axle capacity of the trailer, the wheel bolt pattern, the number of holes (4 or 5) holes in the brake mounting flange, and the inner and outer wheel bearing reference numbers of the bearings used by your current hub. To wire the trailer, I'd recommend using a 7-way connector like # H20046 (be sure to go to the product description...

  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 36105, that you mentioned is designed to fit the 1977 - 1996 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon so this would not work for you but I do have a solution. Curt offers Trailer Hitch, # C12009, which was designed for the Caprice Sedan and will work with the police model. This is a Class II hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. If you plan on doing any towing, I have included an article that covers the steps to choosing the correct ball mount for your...
