  1. My truck does this off on as well. Dealer says no codes so nothing done.
  2. At first it seems that way then it get shakes all the time.i think its tire ply loosens then makes shake more frequently. Put a new quality tire on and will stop for awhile then shakes start creeping in. older heavy car would not have such issues with tires.
  3. I’ve seen several threads on this and the video isnot working. Argh!
  4. Nothing changed. Going after market on springs at some point. Any suggestions on what brand?
  5. Go with bilsteins. You will be impressed with the handling hauling or not.
  6. Just a thought from personal expierance. as tires age on our trucks there might be some legal tread left but the radials wear out inside the tire and hence vibes and shakes that can occur. Like my sra’s At 20k would make the truck shake and no balancing would help. So buying new tires with road force balance less than 20 would make the shake less for awhile.
  7. they are different in feel. Bilstein is firm and sporty I liked better with loads and towing. Ranchos better for helping hide vibes more caddie ride that hoped for when buying one of these full size trucks. Rancho adjustable on stiff settings I not get sport feel like bilstiens, just harsh. Sorry no straight answer here. Best set-up I thought was bilstein on front and ranchos adjustables on back! Merry Christmas. I did not intend on making all these changes with my truck, on a quest for a better ride.
  8. Just a thought. as tires age on our trucks there might be some legal tread left but the radials wear out inside the tire and hence vibes and shakes that can occur. Like my sra’s At 20k would make the truck shake and no balancing would help. So buying new tires would make the shake lessen then after so many more miles down the road the truck will start shaking again cause of internal tire wear.
  9. I felt the same way at 1k. My rear shocks where bad. Didn’t want to deal with trips to dealer. I replaced em with bilsteins and felt great for about 10k and vibes came back. This is separate issue from 70 mph shakes I presently have with currentyires. Now using rancho adjustables.
  10. Notes and Update on my shaking truck. Dealer road forced my Mikey Thompson’s. Dealer has new gm certified machine. so tech says 41# road force on three tires. And we test drive. Still shaking Then they put on tires from another truck of the lot and the ride is much smoother. I still feel the shake but it’s very very minimal. Someone else driving the truck would probably not notice it. I’ll buy my next tires from the dealer and make sure they road balance out properly. Truck is very sensitive to any imperfection in the tires. Will try going back to an all season tire and hope it stays smooth. So im selling some mickey Thompson’s cheap!!! o btw, the tires from the dealer lot truck where Michelin’s tech says if we get Gm involved I’ll have to put on stock shocks and remove shell again and use stock tires. Tech was awesome and knowledgeable.
  11. OK, even thou im dogging it for looking like a cross between a Honda ridge line and a tundra. im ready to sell my 2015 Emeraldo. wonder if it has a 6 or 4 cylinder? and I hope it has comfortable seats as well!
  12. I’ve replaced shocks early on with 4600’s. Now trying rancho adjustables. The best was when I still had 4600’s on front and rancho on back. Now it jus seems to change How it shakes. Doesn’t eliminate it. So finally I’m bugging the dealer about it.
  13. Troubleshooting these issues fall under the power train warranty? Im at 35k and I’m about to go through the process. Think my 15’s power train goes to 100k. Or should I get lil more bumper bumper? Shake at 70,80. Had vibes since 1k. Shakes last 10k or so. Dealers super nice so far and has balanced tires. now replacing them all with another set off another truck on the dealer lot.
