Will a Z28 or Vette power steering pump work on my '04?

My power steering pump recently went out on my 2004 and I was wondering if any LS1 pump would work. I tried running a search for this question but could not find any similar questions. Not too worried about sticking with the clear reservoir I just want to make sure the fitment was the same. Thanks for the help in advanced.

Thanks,
Troy

Why not get the correct pump?

No idea, pull up both of them on Autozone website and see if the Part number is the same.

BINGO!

I really don't understand why some questions are asked when the answer is so simple.

Its not that simple. A GTO had a remote transparent reservoir and a z28 has a black reservoir mounted to the pump itself so the part numbers wouldn't even be the same if it did match up. So no bingo!

Incorrect!

What is so hard for you to drive to a local auto parts store, ask for both pumps and compare the two? It's that simple and not rocket science at all. Like Rukee said, why not just put the correct pump on and not worry if one for a different car will fit or not?

ctoerther, tell me what I'm missing here. There has to be a reason why you don't want to buy the OEM 2004 GTO pump. Do you already have or have access to one of the other mentioned pumps?

Probably because the factory pump is really expensive, and the others are cheaper, so he asked the question. Or, maybe he can pull one at the junkyard. I have been there, had a part they wanted $300 for and really wanted to know if I could get one off a truck or something. Like the headlight module on my Corvette, $300, got 1 used off ebay for $50.
