I'm looking to upgrade the Alternator in my '96 Zookie Sierra and was wondering if I can just put anything that'll fit there or if I need to be aware of anything in particular when upgrading it. I am aware that a larger alternator will draw more from the engine, but I'll be upgrading that too eventually. Any help would be great!

Yea, I've seen a bunch of brackets around for GM alternators so I figure you're right, there's a sizing issue. I haven't burnt mine out yet but it's amusing to hear the enigne tone change everytime I switch on my high beams or have everything running at the same time :p I figure a bigger alternator and a dual batt kit will help solve all that! (I hope!)

Thanks for your help!
