Yes, you can. And you can put a 2001-2005 SS cluster in, but one of the gauges won't work. Volts or oil press, I think. You'll need to get it reprogrammed to your mileage.

The LS will work, and all gauges will work. Plug and play, except mileage. Needs to be reset.

Yeah, but they're easy enough to find that it shouldn't an issue.

what happen if you put another cluster on your impala and does not reprogram the mileage?

Nothing, you will just need to document the mileage from your old cluster and hold on to it until you get it reprogrammed to the new cluster. Its then basic math at that point.

If you don't you get in trouble from the DMV for misrepresenting mileage and it goes on your title.

Agreed. But federally if the car is 10 yrs old, that statement Don is null and void, so he will be good.

he will charge 60 to program mileage

also volt meter works in all models..if you have the 3400 or 3.4l your oil pressure will NOT work, (alternative gauge is here http://www.impalaforums.com/appearan...uster-mod.html)

However if you have the ls model i believe it will work no problem and obviously if you don't have an ss model and you have the optional boost gauge it will not work either.

these are all models that are compatible with each other

monte carlos


base model


ls model


ss impala with boost


monte carlo ss with voltage

theres a couple other ones too with limited edition signatures or something.... think i covered it all


EDIT: oh yea and if you get a 2000 either monte or impala cluster and you don't already have a 2000 impala or monte your S.O.L. cause its a different plug and not compatible with the rest!

I like the LS gauges... but as of now, Books for school drained all the money i had saved from the summer and then some... $600 for books... B/ so all my car plans are either cancelled or put on eternal hold. for now it gets me place to place and if it ain't free/ a mandatory safety hazard, it ain't happenin'. Thanks though! good stuff to know
