  1. I bought a used 2015 Silverado 2500HD Duramax exactly one month ago today, Dec 12th 2017. Truck has 58K miles on it. The alignment was off a bit and the steering wheel was crooked, to the right about 15 degrees. I didn't bother having it taken care of right away because I knew I was going to lift it and it would need to be aligned after the lift. Had the lift installed Dec 27th. with no issues. I have driven the truck about 300-400 miles since having the lift installed but today was the first chance I've had to get it in the shop to have it aligned. When I took it in I had no issues what so ever. Upon leaving after the alignment was done I now have a service stabilitrak warning that pops up as soon as I start the truck and the warning light stays on. Again no issues prior to the alignment. Alignment is perfect now and the steering wheel is straight. I called the shop but the tech that did the alignment had already left for lunch. He called me when he returned and said yes the warning came up after the alignment and that anytime they do an aligment they have to reset the steering position sensor to zero, however he couldn't communicate with the sensor so he was unable to reset it. I guess this would indicate a faulty steering position sensor but I have a hard time believing that since everything was fine prior to the alignment. Any ideas what this could be?
  2. 6.5" ZONE/BDS lift. low miles

    When you went from the zone to the mcgaughy how did you mount the differential? The zone requires the passenger side front differential mount to be cut off but the mcgaughy differential bracket bolts to this mount. I want to replace my rough county lift with the mcgaughy but not sure how to because i have the same problem with the differential mount removed.
  3. Hello all. I had my stereo upgraded today and needs some input from others who have done the same. I had all 4 door speakers replaced with JL Audio 6 3/4s and 2 JL 10s in a box under the rear seat while retaining the factory radio. I instructed the installer to use the rear speaker outputs so the door chimes wouldn't be amplified and to use the 5 channel amp to power the 4 door speakers and the 2 10s. I also asked that he disconnect the dash speakers and run new leads from the factory radio to the dash speakers so I would have the chimes come thru the driver dash speaker. He did not do this and since the front door and dash speakers are wired together they are both now amplified. Not really a bad thing but now I have no chimes or audio from the bluetooth phone. My question if anyone knows, when you are talking on the phone does the audio only come from the driver side speakers or out of both driver and passenger side speakers? If both then I am going to run new leads to the dash speakers from the front radio output. If its onlu from the driver side i may just leave the dash speakers amplified and mount a small external speaker under the dash somewhere wired from the front driver side radio output so I can have my chimes and phone audio back. Has anyone else done this or does anyone have any other suggestions?
  4. According to crutchfield all 4 speaker outputs are full range so you shouldn't lose anything by tapping the rear speaker outputs. I'm going to do as Capt. McFunk said, tap the rear doors speakers outputs for my line level into my line out converter then run rca's to my amp then run new speaker wires to all 4 doors. Leave the 2 dash speakers connected to the factory wiring fort my chime.
  5. Has anyone addressed the issue of the factory stereo reducing the bass input into the aftermarket amp as the volume is increased and if how did you eliminate it? Also for those of you that have replaced the door speakers and added an amp to run them how did you deal with the door chime volume being amplified. At first I plan to just add 2 JL 10s and an amp and get my signal from the rear door speakers so I don't have to deal with the chimes. If later I decide to replace the factory speakers and add a 4 channel amp I will probably just use the rear speaker leads for the signal input and just use some rca Y adaptors for the 4 channel inputs, Run new speaker wires to all 4 doors and leave the dash speakers connected simply for the chimes that way the chimes won't be amplified. Of course using just the rear speaker outputs and the Y adaptors will eliminate the ability to fade front to back but I could simply adjust the gains to balance out the volume front to rear.
  6. Hey guys, I have a question for anyone who has upgraded the factory sound system in their Sierra or Silverado. I have a 2015 Sierra non nose stereo. I want to replace all 4 door speakers and add an amp to power them yet retain the factory radio. I called crutchfield and they gave me the pinouts so I would know what wires to tap for a line output converter but my concern is with the door chime. The chimes come from the driver door speaker. If I tap those speaker wires and feed them to the line output converter they then became the input source for the amp so in turn wouldn't the door chimes be running thru the amp as well and therefore amplified? I have the chime setting turned all the way down as it is and it still is too loud. I certainly don't want to amplify the chime. Anyone else run into this?
  7. Sorry I haven't gotten back to anyone on this. Never got updates from the forum that there were any replies and I haven't been on in a few days. I couldn't find any fuse also the shutters were not working. Took it to the dealer and there was on fact a blown fuse. The dealer replaced it and drive it but it blew again. They traced the problem to a pinched wire on the radiator core support. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  8. I did this mod in my 2015 Sierra SLE and it works great with my galaxy s7 edge even with the case. The key is to use a fast charging wireless pad. I also purchased the original Samsung adaptive fast charge car charger and it works great. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk

  10. The shutters on my 2015 Sierra headlights aren't working when I turn on my hi beams. When I turn them on I get the blue hi beam indicator on the dash but the shutter isn't opening. I've looked for a fuse or relay but can't find anything. Any ideas what to look for? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
