1987 Chevrolet Questions and Answers


  • Weight Distribution / Sway Control System That Will Fit A V-Nose Trailer
  • Yes, the Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch System can be adapted to a V-Nose style trailer. You would need to use an alternate mounting system for the chain hanger brackets. The Bolt on Chain Hanger Kit, item # RP58305, will bolt onto the side of trailer frame. Once installed the chains are attached by raising the trailer tongue and rear of vehicle with the trailer jack. Tubular frames cannot be wider than 2-1/4 inches with this hanger kit, so you will need to be sure and measure before...

  • Recommended Universal 7-Way Wiring Harness for a 1987 Chevrolet Silverado SWB
  • Both the # ETBC7 and the Curt # C57186 are universal 7-way kits, but I recommend the # ETBC7 over the # C57186 for ease of install and because it comes with a wire tester included. Both kits require a 4-way being installed on the vehicle to plug in the initial functions. For your vehicle you will want to install the # 18252. I really like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 because it is a proportional brake controller which means it senses how the tow vehicle is slowing or stopping and...

  • Light Bar Recommendation for 1987 Chevy Blazer K5
  • The rotating gutter mount light bar part # CARR210111 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 1987 K Series Blazer since your Blazer has the same roof as the C/K style Chevy trucks. This light bar is designed for up to a 50 inch lightbar, but I am sure you could find a way to attach a 52 inch light bar to it. This product does have a limited lifetime warranty that would get voided if you were to modify it.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1987 Chevy C/K 1500 With a Deep Drop Bumper
  • A deep drop bumper is a bumper that hangs further below the frame than a standard bumper. Check out the photo that I attached showing a deep drop bumper compared to a standard bumper and a step bumper. We have three frame mount trailer hitches that will work with a deep drop bumper on your 1987 Chevrolet C/K 1500. You could install the Curt Hitch, # C13099 or the Draw-Tite Hitch, # 41504. These are all Class III trailer hitches that have a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs and a tongue weight...

  • Hitch Fit for 1987 Chevy S-10 With Factory Step Bumper
  • Curt hitch # C13132 is a confirmed fit for your 1987 Chevy S-10 with a factory step bumper and it will not require you to drill any holes; the hitch simply bolts on. There will be no issues as far as the spare tire is concerned, it will be able to stay mounted underneath the truck. The Draw-Tite # 75051 may tuck away ever so slightly, but not so much as to create a noticeable difference in aesthetics on your truck compared to the Curt hitch. The recommended wiring to add a 4-flat connector...

  • Curt Hitch 13028 Installation on 1987 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup with 8-Foot Bed
  • I checked with my technical contact at Curt Manufacturing about your hitch # 13028 installation on your 1987 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup with 8-foot bed and standard or step bumper. This product is a confirmed fit for your truck as long as it does not have the 10-inch bumper. My contact confirmed that usually there is a 1- x 1-inch cross member at the position where the largest hole appears on the mounting flanges. This is the second hole on each flange as you move forward from the receiver...

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 1987 Chevy C/K With Standard Bumper
  • Sounds like your 1987 Chevy truck has the standard bumper which we have plenty of hitches for. The Curt hitch part # 13028 is the most popular option we carry. When this is installed you will basically just see the hitch opening below the bumper. I attached a picture that shows how the hitch will sit below the rear bumper.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 1987 Chevy V10 Pickup Step Side Short Bed with Sport Bumper
  • Your 1987 Chevy C/K pickup, V10, is the 1/2 ton 4x4 model. The standard suspension on it was not the heavy duty suspension. The rear gross axle capacity would have to be rated at 6,000 pounds for the HD suspension which was an option for the V20. The spacer blocks are # 01077-011 and they are sold individually. I am not sure what the Sport bumper looks like so I had to look it up. It is not a standard/step bumper so if that is truly the case then hitch # 75034 would not fit properly....

  • Width of Headache Rack on Detail K2 Flip Rack
  • The distance between the endpoints on the headache rack of the Detail K2 Flip Rack, # K2TFR150, is 36 inches or 3 ft. (see attached diagram) The rear crossbar is 51 inches wide and this system has a weight capacity of 500 lbs.

  • Replacement Pressure Sensor for Air Lift Air Bag Compressor Systems
  • Yes, the pressure sensor # AL24558 is a fit for your Air Lift compressor system. And you are correct, they are sold in quantities of one.

  • Shank and WD System Head Availability as Replacement Parts
  • Sounds like you are in need of a weight distribution shank and head assembly. Without knowing what brand you have it would be hard for me to make the proper recommendations. Most shanks are universal though. They typically will have 3/4 inch diameter holes that are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart measured on center. I attached a page that has all of the shanks we offer as well as an FAQ article that details how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount for a setup. I also attached a...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 1987 Chevrolet Silverado
  • For your 1987 Chevrolet Silverado The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for the Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup, 1987 part # 40050 allows you to retain the stock spare tire location. Removing the tire temporarily for this install is optional. However, it is recommended and it will make the install easier to complete. Once the install is complete the spare tire can be returned to its original location.

  • Do Tire/Wheel Combos Come With Tire Mounted On Rims
  • When we receive tire/wheel combos like part # AC16R8SM, they come with the tire mounted on the rim from the supplier. We also offer tires and rims as separate items but the combos do come mounted. I have attached a link to our product page for the tire/wheel combos we offer.

  • Best Airbags for a Lowered 1987 Chevrolet R10
  • In regards to the type of lowering kit that was installed on your 1987 Chevrolet R10, do you know if it was an axle flip kit installed (axle over leaf springs) or were lowering blocks/shackles used? If you have an axle flip kit then you are going to want to use the Air Lift SlamAir Air Helper Springs for Lowered Trucks part # AL59106BT but if you have lowering blocks/shackles then you will want to use the Air Lift SlamAir Air Helper Springs for Lowered Trucks part # AL59103. Though not...

  • Trailer Hitch and Accessory Recommendations for a 1987 Chevy Suburban 1500
  • We only carry 1 trailer hitch for the 1987 Chevy Suburban, # 75500. The Ultra-Frame hitch, # 41901, fits Chevy and GMC trucks but not the Suburban. The 75500 hitch can handle up to 7,500 pound gross trailer weight and 750 pounds tongue weight when used with weight distribution. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you plan on doing some towing, I recommend the etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with...

  • What Parts are Needed to Install an Electric Trailer Brake Controller on a 1987 Chevy Astro
  • In order to install a brake controller on a 1987 Chevy Astro, there are a few parts you are going to need. First, you need to install a 4-Way trailer wiring harness, # 18252. I have included a link to a video that shows a typical installation. You will need to use the included circuit tester to test the van wiring because it will most likely not match color for color with the vehicle in the video. After you have installed the 4-Way, you will need to install a 4 and 7 Way installation...

  • 4-Pole Wiring Harness for 1987 El Camino
  • The only trailer wiring that has been confirmed to work with your 1987 Chevrolet El Camino, is a hardwire connector kit like the Draw-Tite 4-Pole Hardwire Kit, # 18252. We do not have a plug in style that has been confirmed to work with your vehicle. Although the connector for another vehicle may look very similar, it has not been tested for use on the El Camino so there would be no guarantee that a it would work for you.

  • Connecting 4-Way on 1987 Chevy Truck to 7-Way on Trailer
  • If I am understanding correctly you are attempting to hook up the 4-flat on your 1987 Chevy to the 7-blade on your trailer and to do that you simply need adapter # 30717. In regards to the connection, the colors are going to differ a bit based on the style of connector you have; for example the Pollak # PK12706 is an RV style connector which has the following functions: Blue: electric brake Green: tail lights Red: left turn signal and brakes Brown: right turn signal and brakes Yellow:...

  • Will a Hitch for 1996 Ford F-350 Also Fit 1987 Chevrolet K20 Pickup
  • It would be quite unusual - and really lucky - for a hitch that fits a 1996 Ford truck to also fit a 1987 Chevy pickup. There are currently a wide range of hitches offered for both vehicles. These fit the various versions of the two trucks. There are 17 hitches offered for the different versions of the 1996 F-350 depending on its bumper type and bed length. Please see the included link. There are 20 for the 1987 K-Series, shown on the other link. If you can tell me the bumper type...

  • Determining Brake Light Wire on 1987 Chevy Suburban
  • Wire colors have changed over the years, so the best way for you to find out which color wire is the brake light on your 1987 Chevrolet Suburban is by using a circuit tester such as # 3808. Unfortunately, GM doesn't provide a catalog with this information for their vehicles. I have attached a link to a help article on wiring which you may find useful.

  • Adding Clearance or Running Lights to 1987 Chevy 1 Ton Dually Flat Bed
  • You can run your wires directly from your battery using a switch like # PL-SW28B if you desire, or you can simply splice into your vehicle running light circuit. I recommend using a circuit tester like # 3808 to find a wire that has power to your tail lights or near your fuse box when vehicle is on ACC or running. You can use a quick splice like # 804C to tap into that power easily. This will automatically turn the clearance lights on and off with your running lights.

  • What Portion of Trailer Brake Line Has to be A Hard Line Vs. Flexible Line
  • The only place you really need a flexible brake line is when you go from the frame of the trailer to the axle since the suspension allows movement there. Aside from that you can use all hard lines if you want since there won't be any movement anywhere else.

  • Do Longer Leaf Springs Require Relocation of Trailer Spring Hangers
  • It is quite common for old worn-out leaf springs to measure longer than they were when new. This elongation is one part of the wear process. The modest length difference between the 25-1/4-inch and 25-7/8-inch springs you reference is small enough that hanger relocation should not be necessary. Spring length should be measured with the springs removed from the trailer. If still installed on the hangers and under any load the spring will not measure the same as when removed from the suspension. The...

  • Will a Thule Bed Rider TH822XTR fit on a 1987 Chevy El Camino
  • The fit info for the Thule Bed Rider part # TH822XTR was never taken back to vehicles that are as old as your 1987 Chevy El Camino so I can't say for sure if it would fit, but realistically if your bed rails are between 47-3/4" - 70" apart and you don't have a bed rail cover then the rack would fit and work well.

  • Will the Adco Spare Tire Cover Fit the Spare on a 1987 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer Tire Size 215/70R15
  • The Adco Spare Tire Cover, # 290-1737, will fit the 215/70R15 spare tire of your 1987 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer. The cover is designed to fit a 27 inch diameter tire. The spare on you Blazer measures right at 27 inches. The cover has a heavy-duty vinyl construction that will help protect the spare from the elements.

  • Fit and Compatibility of Draw-Tite Hitch 75129 on a 1987 K5 Chevy Blazer with Previous Modifications
  • We have not yet had the opportunity to install the Draw-Tite hitch # 75129 on a vehicle so I do not have a picture. I have linked the instructions to the hitch on this page for your convenience. They will show up under the Featured Help Information bold writing. I have also linked some Class III accessories that will work with your # 75129 hitch for you to check out.

  • Recommended Tonneau Cover For 1987 GMC Jimmy S-15 Truck
  • For your 1987 GMC Jimmy S-15, the cover would depend on if you have the 6 foot bed or 7 foot bed. The picture you attached is of a different truck, so I'll give you options for both. I recommend the Extang BlackMax Soft Tonneau Cover - Snap On - Roll Up - Vinyl # EX2525 if you have a 7 foot bed. This cover will cover the stack pockets and will snap into place for a tight fit. If you have the 6 foot bed, the correct part is # EX2520. The bed rails would depend on the manufacturer,...

  • Availability of Floor Mats for 1987 Chevy C/K Series Pickup
  • We do have a nice selection of floor mats available that are confirmed to fit your 1987 Chevy C/K Series Pickup. I recommend looking at the Husky Liners Floor Liners # HL31111 for a set of front mats that are custom-fit. These are extra-durable liners that feature a sturdy, rubberized thermoplastic construction and raised treads that will help to channel any messes. Note that these only fit 2-Wheel drive models. I have attached a link that will take you to our available selection...

  • Could Dexstar Conventional Wheel # AM20758 Fit 1987 Chevy Silverado V10 K10 4x4
  • Typically, trailer wheels will not work on a vehicle but if you have a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern on your hub and need 16 inch wheels then the # AM20758 may work great for you. Another thing to make sure of is if you have an offset on your wheels. The # AM20758 has a zero offset meaning the tire is evenly spaced over the center of the wheel.

  • Trailer Hitch for a 1987 Chevy Blazer Monster Truck with Deep Drop Bumper
  • Deep drop bumpers are about 10 inches tall. It looks like in the picture you have submitted the vehicle already has one. The one hitch for your 1987 Chevy Blazer # 75129 is designed so that the receiver fits right under the stock bumper. It would not work with a deep drop bumper. So what I recommend is a weld-on hitch, # 41990-16, because the tall brackets will allow you to mount the hitch lower to compensate for the bumper. I recommend having a professional welder perform the installation. To...
