700r4 output shaft swap

Hey guys first post


i was wondering what it takes to change an output shaft from a junk 4x4 700r4 to a 2wd 700r4 thats good? ive heard you need to basically teardown the whole tranny to do it and i have also heard you can just cut the outputshaft down 1.5 inches and that will work for bolting up to the t-case?????


also if i get a 4l60 4x4 tranny will that bolt right up no problems what so ever?



thanks for the help

the 700-r4 and the 4L60 trans are the same transmission.

You can not cut the longer shaft off to a 4x4 length out put shaft .

the trans must be disassembled about 1/2 into the internal parts to swap the shafts. It is not a job for a non experienced person

A 4L60 is the same trans as a 700r4. GM renamed them.

Do not confuse a 4L60E with the non electronic 700 /4L60.

The 4L60E trans has an electrical connector on the passenger side of the trans about 1.5 inches in diameter. There is no TV cable on the 4L60E
