Im wondering is there a sure fire way to know if your buying a SS model. I know on the 94-96 Impala SS you can not tell by the VIN number you have to look for the (WX3) SPID code on the trunk lid to know for sure it is a true impala SS. Does the Silverado SS have a simular way? I have heard people say look for the N in the VIN number.


Here is VIN for a "SS" Im looking to buy.... VIN: 2GCEK19N841187728 It has its N but carfax says it is a Silverador K1500.



Thanks

It should be an SS....then "N" in the vin is the LQ9 6.0L which is the correct engine for an SS all other 6.0L options were the LQ4 versions....the "K" in the vin is for 4wd and awd, which is probably why the carfax says what it does

NO..

Also in the glove compartment under the RPO list, you should see 1SS and B4U to make sure it is an SS
