  1. Just a trans relearn each time. Told me nothing was wrong with it. I said it shouldn't be hard shifting and lunging forward especially in traffic. The response I got was that I have plenty of time left on my warranty in case it really breaks. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  2. My 8 speed has already been in 3 times and still has hard shifts at random. I wish they would just warranty it out and put the 10 speed in. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Blackbear tuned my last truck and it was great. The only problem is that my 17 has the 6.2 and Blackbear can't tune the 17s with 6.2s. The TCM is locked. I have to send my TCM to have it unlocked by hp tuners 1st but even then I'd have to have someone else tune it. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. My brother has a 17 camaro ss and his 8 speed shifts great. He's hasn't had any issues with shudder or the random hard shifts. We also didn't have to shim his peddle assembly either. Why can't they take the trans tune from the camaro/corvette 8 speed and put it in our trucks? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. After Market Parts For Sale

    I bought the cognitos from him back in Oct. Didn't have any issues with him. Shipped them fast and sent tracking info. I can probably find his email address if you want. Send me a pm. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. I'm pretty sure just to get it unlocked it's $200. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. It's sad to say that this is the main reason I'm looking forward to my warranty expiring. As soon as it ends I'm sending my TCM to HP Tuners to get unlocked so I can have the engine and trans properly tuned. Other than the 8 speed joke of a transmission I love the truck.

  8. After 10k miles the my front bumper looked horrible. Paint chips on a summit white bumper looked like it was covered in black bugs. Dealer ended up repainting the front bumper under warranty. As soon as I got it back I had xpel ultimate installed. Should have got it done when I bought the truck. 10k miles later and numerous trips to the deer lease the front still looks new.

  9. My tires would rub my stock upper control arms at full lock. You can also see in the pic where it would also rub on the swaybar. I think that by correcting the ball joint angles the cognito ucas design allows them to sit more level so at full lock the tire clears the uca now. As for the sway bar rubbing I'm not sure how it helped with that but I have a 1/2 inch of clearence now. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. Not bad at all. It would have been easier if I had removed the strut assembly, but I was being lazy. I ended up having to use a pry bar and an extra set of hands to get the bolts past the coil springs. Cutting the service perch wasn't bad either. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. Finally got around to installing my cognitos that have been sitting in a box for a few months. The truck is no longer rubbing at full lock with my 295/55R20 Ridge Grapplers. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. Here's a post I made about replacing the blocks a while ago... You can just jack up rear leaf spring. I installed my rear blocks a couple of weeks ago and it about 20 mins. ON A LEVEL SURFACE. Place a 4x4 block on your jack so you have plenty of lift. Position the block/jack on the front side of the leaf spring directly in front of the factory rear blocks. Don't put pressure on the jack yet. Take off the u bolts. Now jack up the spring enough to remove the factory block and install the new one. Slowly lower the jack. You should notice the rear slightly roll into place. This is why you need a level surface. It helps to have someone else there to watch and make sure everything lines up while you lower the jack. Once it's lowered all the way reinstall the u bolts. Do one side at a time. It's very easy. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. I didn't use a c clamp. Just make sure to do 1 side of the truck at a time and on a level surface. When you tighten the u bolts make sure the weight of the truck is on the ground. Tighten in a cross pattern and try to get the bottom plate as level with the ground as you can. I wrote a brief write up on an old post. If I can find it I'll post it on here.

  14. I have 3" readylift tapered blocks on my 17 with no vibration at 80 mph. I had the same setup on my old 08 and no vibration with that truck either. I think ppl that have the vibrations might be caused by something else or they could just have bad luck. Make sure to properly torque the u bolts after the install and check them after a few hundred miles. Keep your tires balanced and rotated regularly. You should be good to go.

  15. Do you have anymore details? Where did you get the lights and how did you mount them? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
