Has anyone noticed the hole through the oil pan on your SSR? This is the 3rd or 4th time I have changed my oil and just noticed the 3 or so inch hole that passes through the oil pan. Is it for cooling or maybe it is borrowed from a front wheel drive vehicle?

The drivetrain on the 03/04 is the same as the 4 x 4 Trailblazer XT with the 5.3. The hole was for the front shaft to pass through.

Wait until you take a wheel off and see the splines for the front shafts - looks a bit strange.

Easy 4 Wheel Drive

It makes it all that much easier for you when you want to convert to 4WD. Just think a Supercharged 500hp 4 WD smokin 4 skins at the same time. Hmmmmm.

my mechanic was changing my oil and called me under the car to ask me if i knew about the hole in the oil pan, and also pointed out the holes near the wheels. i explained that it was for the trailblazer but it was cool to get a clear look at the underside of our SSR's. it's put together pretty well under there......
