  1. Does anyone live in Southern California?

  2. Anybody else park their truck?

    I try to ride the bus to work 4 times a week. We use my truck for road trips, house projects and hunting so I still put 16k per year on it. I figure I would rather put the miles on doing fun stuff than commuting 40 miles per day to work. Since I have a lot invested in my truck, I want to make it last Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  3. I replaced my fronts about 6k miles ago. I am starting to get a little clunk going over bumps on the drivers side. Has anyone else had this problem? I torqued everything to spec at install and rechecked it last night. It feels like it is the stabilizer link. But I can't figure it out. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  4. Tire recommendations

    +1 about the at3s. Also took a little hit on city gas mileage, but they are great tires. Ran them in 6" of snow on my last truck and they were great. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  5. LT vs P tires

    I didn't go bigger because it would have added $25 per tire. America's Tire had the LT 265 65 18 for $175 per tire. They didn't show them online, had to go into the store Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  6. Struts or Brakes?

    When you jack it up, once the tires are off the ground, you are good Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  7. Struts or Brakes?

    Struts are easy to replace yourself especially if you are doing the brakes. I had a Big Brand tire shop do the press work for $20 each. All you need is a 15mm wrench, 15mm, 18mm deep and 22mm sockets and jack/ stands. I did it in the driveway in 3 hours for both sides Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  8. Ajusa.com had a good deal on them when I bight my rears. Got the front Bilstiens from amazon warehouse Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  9. Oil change and K&n 57 series cold air intake Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  10. I am looking at getting a dash mat for my truck. I hand the cocoa dune interior with a brown leather dash that gets really hot. Has anyone bought one? Any suggestions on color and brand? Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  11. I just did the fronts. My local big brand tire store was willing to mount the coils fit $20 per strut. I bought the amazon warehouse open box special 5100s for $75 each. Out the door for less than $200 on the front struts. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  12. Just did the 5100s on the front. Set at 3/4 inch. Big brand tire did the spring commission for 20 per side on a Sunday. Worth every penny. The 19 ft lbs of torque on the lower bolts seems low. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  13. Anyone Using a Electric Trailer Jack

    I have one and like it. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks. The compressor is the part that makes me nervous. Was it pretty easy? Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  15. I am planning on doing the fronts now. From what I am seeing, it looks pretty straight forward, but my brother in law says alldata shows it being tough. They are calling for 3 hours of shop time. Also, can someone suggest a good spring compressor if I do it my self? Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
