2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 4wd makes ticking
I fixed this problem on my truck by changing the Oil Pump Inlet Tube O-Ring. The lifters are the first part that don't get enough oil after this o-ring breaks down. All Chevrolet mid 2000s era 5.3L O-Ring fails around 150-190K.

I am so sorry to tell you........yes.
There is another approach to this problem that many thousands of people use every year.
I have used this approach many times myself, since I have had cars with this problem,. and fixed them for other people.
What your dealer is telling you is the cost of replacing the lines with OE parts.
(OE means original equipment. )
And yes, those lines are put onto the frame of the truck before the body is attached, so they really would have to remove the body to change them.
What I and thousands of others have done is buy straight brake lines by the piece, different lengths according to what you need, and then hand bend them to fit the job.
That means the replacements will not be in the same places as the original, and may be longer or shorter than the original.
Your total cost of parts & labor should more approach about a few hundred dollars. ( Maybe 200 - 300?)
God bless your efforts.

My 2004 Chevy Silverado can't
Have you checked B+ power feed for memory to the PCM ? The PCM/ECM - engine computer has a couple of power feeds and one is for the keep alive memory . Looking at a wiring diagram of the powers and grounds would show that . Testing with a volt meter would show if it has power or not . Check PCM B fuse 20 amp located in the under hood fuse box . An don't just look at it ,check for voltage across the fuse . This fuse should be hot at all times .

Where is the computer located on a 2004 chevy silverado 1500
Drivers side (under the hood) by the empty battery tray. The inside large one is the ecm. There are tiny red clips that get pushed back first. Then about the center you push in and the whole clip rotates and then the whole thing comes of the ecm. Bottom one is the same. Unit clips in top tabs. Lift them slightly and remove ecm
