Payton34 started following Rusting Frame, Noisy control arm bushing only 25kmiles, Do Fox remote res coilovers loose nitrogen over time? and and 6 others
I have 25k miles and have a noisy squeek from bushing on larger bumps. They don’t look worn out already they actually look like new and have no play in them. Does the entire control arm need to be replaced or are bushing available separate. Or would any lube fix it
I Determined its the control arm bushing creaking they look fine and aren’t worn. Can they be lubed with someothat will not eat rubber?
How often should they be checked n filled. I thought they were sealed but then noticed a valve on the reservoir
I was just wondering if this could be the shock making the noise. I have never checked Nitrogen levels and they are about 2.5 years old with 18k miles. How often should they be checked? I saw the valve on the end of the remote reservoir so I am guessing they are supposed to be checked and refilled?
I have fox coilovers and also thought it could be from them compressing but I have never noticed it before and if I roll off a high curb I here nothing. If it’s at some speed I hear the noise. If I’m driving higher speed over 30 and hit a bump to make suspension cycle there’s no noise. I checked all parts under front end and nothing is worn or broken. All I can think of is the plastic balancing beads in the tire are knocked down in the tire because truck isn’t going over 35 for the beads to be forced to outside of tire. I also find hard to believe I would be able to hear plastic beads in the tire with windows rolled up
I thought I had tire rub because I first heard a whooshing sound back out of driveway when I went over the curb. Sounds like a tire rubbing against the felt wheel liner. I determined it is not tire rub because I get same sound with wheels straight. Then I was driving through an intersection where it is flat then at cross walk there is a incline maybe 20 degrees at least and right when front hit the incline I get the same whoosh sound. Any ideas? My only idea is maybe the plastic wheel balancing beads in my tires dropping and hitting rim inside the tire. When I went through intersection I was doing maybe 20 mph so the beads wouldn’t have been pushed out against the tires yet. They need 35 mph. If I am driving over 35 and hit railroad track or pot hole I have never heard anything. I also jumped up and down on rear and front and rocked truck and get no noise from suspension.

I have a BDS 6in coilover with coilovers lowered to 4.5" of lift. 35x12.5r20 Toyo RT on stock 20x9 wheels. When reversing over a curb I hear a scrapping tire. Sounds like its on the felt lining but it is intermittent. It only happens when the wheel is slightly turned. When I have someone reverse over a curb I don't hear or see any rub. I already have the felt liner pulled back with zip ties. Anyone running the BDS 4 or 6in lift know where rubbing occurs on this lift? I think its very minor since I only hear it once in a while.

Did you ever install the new re-designed spindles that BDS sent you? I was wondering if that helped your Stabilitrak issue...

Correct about the ECM and TCM but I was talking about the EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module). This module also has settings related to tire size and controls the Traction Control and Stabilitrak. The EBCM can only be flashed/programmed by a Tech2 at the dealership. It is in the EBCM that the problem starts.
For now I found a really nice memory module made by KP Technologies. FM-20 "Flexible Memory Module". I plugged this into my TC on/off button harness and if I turn off Stabiltrak by holding the button for 8 seconds this module will remember and replicate that every time I get in the truck. This way I don't have to hold the button each time I start the truck.
http://www.kptechnologies.com Look for their Flexible Memory Module under Traction control. "FM-20"... $49.99
The small Traction Control light on the dash stays on 24/7 now indicating that Traction control and Stabilitrak are off.
Payton34 replied to Almboss's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsI have an extra set of brand new BDS lift Spindles for a 6" lift kit. They accidentally sent me an extra set and said to keep. Would these be worth anything?
Payton34 replied to Payton34's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsWell finally got the 3rd brake light after they shipped me the wrong one initially. It doesn’t fit I had to trim the alignment tabs on the light so it would go on and even after screwed on tight it had a little wiggle. I sprayed with water and it let water into the cab the gasket doesn’t seal anywhere on the body. I definitely do not recommend protuning lights.
