2005 Suburban Z-71 w/ 4L60e.

I want to do a pan drop and filter change.

I may order the filter online so I need to figure out if I have a shallow or deep pan...

How can I do that?

The last trans filter change I did was on a 95 GMC K1500 and I just took the old filter into the parts store and they matched it up.

I'm throwing the new filter on an online order along with some brake pads so I need to find out which one I need without removing the filter first..

Thanks!

At least on a 2001 Silverado with that trans, the deep pan has a very small "step" on the bottom while the shallow pan is apparently flat. The step is probably a half-inch or smaller.

The "deep" pan doesn't look all that deep, especially if you're expecting something like an aftermarket deep pan.

Where the exhaust pipe crosses under the pan, there is kind of a relief in the pan to give clearance for the pipe. There will be a step down in the pan behind the pipe, towards the rear of the truck.
