Not exact fit

By 

from Peoria, IL

Comments about CARQUEST Fuel Accessories Fuel Tank Straps (Includes 2 Straps):

These don't fit a 2000 silverado. They are the right overall length, but the bends are in the wrong places and can't be adjusted. Simply put, you need 9.5 inches from the bottom of the flange to the horizontal portion of the strap and this product only gives you 9. It'll work in a pinch if you buy a longer bolt, but it still is the wrong fit. And although labeled Car Quest, it's actually a Dorman part.

Comments about CARQUEST Fuel Accessories Fuel Tank Straps (Includes 2 Straps):

I have a 2000 GMC 2500 pickup and these BARELY fit on the tank. Took 2 people, A jack and almost 5 full minutes to get the bolt to catch.

They are manufactured incorrectly, It looks like they are too wide and don't seat right into the slots on the tank which makes it very difficult to attach them to the vehicle.

Advance now offers a differently branded version of these using the same part number. They are coated black and look to be a lot better than the Spectra ones. I picked up a set of them but have not installed them yet so I can't comment on the actual fit but they pass the eyeball test for sure. If you buy them make sure to get the black coated ones and not the older Spectra bare steel version.

      Comments about CARQUEST Fuel Accessories Fuel Tank Straps (Includes 2 Straps):

      DOES NOT fit 2006 chevy truck, this company apparently didnt do enough R and D to figure out it doesnt fit all the years they claim. 2006 chevy truck has a shorter strap on the front of the tank at the bolt side than the rear strap. front strap was about 3 inches to long. not as good of quality as oem as far as thickness of material. My recommendation....dont waste your time.

          the side with the bolt needs to be 1" longer to use the factory bolts...... or include some longer bolts..

              A:

              Hi Rich, happy to help! The installation process depends upon the skill level of the person performing the operation. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
