So I noticed today that my 6 month old 2017 white sierra is developing Freckles. looks like tiny rust spots all down both sides and on the front bumper. When i saw the first bits it was on the door and i thought, oh no, maybe my tires have thrown rocks n stuff up and dug right through the clear and paint etc to the metal and now it's rusting, but as i looked harder there is tiny rust spots forming over most of the truck, including places where there is no chance of road debris hitting, and parts that aren't even metal underneath, like the door trim and the pillar post sticker things. Whole truck is looking like crap now and it's not even a year old. I'm able to rub some of the spots out so it seems like it might just be rail dust in the clear coat, anyone have any thoughts on this? is it covered under warranty? Is it something i can fix myself if not? pretty much new truck looks like a fat irish kid now, not impressed at all.
OK so I've searched like crazy and find similar issues but never the exact same or a fix so here we go I have a 2006 chevy Silverado with rear drum brakes I have baer eradi speed front brakes basically it's just a larger bracket and rotor with stock caliper and also the truck is lowered with Springs and spindle in the front .I noticed my brakes squeaking the other day so I checked the brakes and noticed the drivers pads were almost completely gone where the passengers look new and now that I'm really paying attention I notice that the truck pulls to the left when hard braking ..the temperatures are much hotter on the driver side and more brakedust I thought for sure it would be the after market calipers or lines so I went out and got brand new OEM calipers and lines and bled.. it the 1st couple stops it seemed OK and then I gave it a hard stop and the AbS did its thing and now it's back to the way it was I'm not sure if it was the ABS that did it or just the fact that it was a hard stop and I warmed up the brakes..but back to square one wondering if its the brake pressure modulator valve idk need help
I just did the back brakes on a 2005 Tahoe and found that as many others have, that the rotors can get hung up on the e-brake shoe even if it's not engaged. I decided that I'd make a video on my method of removal. Hope this helps someone that may search this in the future.
Here it is:
I just replaced the front bearings on both sides of my 99' Silverado Z71. But now the brakes are giving me issues. When im going slow is where i have the issues. It feels as if they lock up and all you hear is kinda like a bad power steering noise. the pads are almost new. I dont know what this could be. Can anyone help.
I realize these trucks may not have seen enough salt, brine or calcium chloride yet. Perhaps there is a link to the previous 900 trucks.
Do these new trucks have any protection or design upgrades that prevent the rockers from rotting out like the 800's and other Ford and Chrysler products?
I notice the design is similar, with the multiple water/moisture drains on the bottom. Scares me a bit....
