Should be the standard flywheel package for a late model truck that has a 4l80e. I don't have the part numbers off hand, but a quick search in this section of the forum should get ya one real quick.

Ya, I think I remember reading that the kit is no longer available and you'd have to buy the parts separate. I bought mine used from a member here for my swap. A competent parts guy at a GM dealership should be able to find the part numbers.
