  1. Pretty sure gm Is actually right here. That screen is meant to show mileage to empty not act as an actual fuel gauge. I don’t recall the level changing on mine either but I have a 2015
  2. Unfortunately, it will take people dying like with the ignition switch issue to escalate the concerns.
  3. when the pump grenades it allows engine oil to contaminate the hose and booster hence the replacement recommendation. not sure why the master cylinder would need to be replaced.
  4. here is how I did mine: 1. Get you some bicycle inner tube or rubber sheet (HD sells in plumbing dept) 2. Raise truck from frame on driver side just in front of rear wheel. 3. Use jack stand for safety 4. Use large flat blade screwdriver or pry bar to separate leaves at front of spring 5. Insert rubber piece then remove pry tool. keep your digits out of harm's way 6. Repeat 4 & 5 at rear of spring 7. Repeat 2-6 on passenger side Just did this this morning and when I shake the bed side to side the only noise I hear now is a little axle play; spring clunk is gone. We'll see how long it lasts. Fluid film was getting me about a month before the noise returned.

  6. Wouldn't a gm tech2 tool do both if you're willing to spend a few grand?
  7. +1 my WT front liner is still good after 2 years but the rear liner has curled up like a potato chip at the door sill edges. replaced the rear liner with husky xact and it's so much better than the WT
  8. I find it astonishing that GM can't engineer a leaf spring design that doesn't suck. I mean the basic design has only been around for what? 100 years?
  9. +3. OP has exact same symptoms I had. hosed down front and rear of springs near shackles with fluid film and it's noticeably better. make sure you get it between the leaves and have to reapply periodically.
  10. This was a common issue on the 99-02's and there was a recall for it. I can't remember the exact cause but I believe it was corrosion on the wheel speed sensors.
  11. not unless someone dies or there are a good number of property damage incidents
  12. can someone explain what the vacuum pump failure has to do with oil pump failure. Does the vacuum pump drive the oil pump?
  13. figured I'd be the guinea pig and bought them. Unbelievable -- they are all plastic except for the metal brackets that run from the step to the body. I think the older versions were powder coated steel.
