Re: 4l60e years that interchange
Basically, it is the electronics that will give you a problem. For the least amount of trouble, try staying with the same year. The 4L60E saw considerable upgrades in late 97 with small improvements every so often after that.
If you are dead set on using an alternate year, it can be done, but the PCM will need to be re-flashed to match the tranny, as well as some wiring modifications. Some models have a different solenoid setup. Stay away from that 96, it is junk. Use a late 97 or newer.
