I’m deciding if I should add a coil spacer on my 2wd Silverado. I’m torn between a 2”, 2.5”, or 3”. Ideally I would like to run a 3” but I’ve heard I would need new control arms with a 3” but I would like some other opinions. If so, would is the biggest I could do without needing to replace any parts? Also I plan on adding some rear lift blocks and not sure what minimum size block would I need for it to sit level?

A new infographic from Spork Marketing draws an interesting comparison between the 1998 Chevrolet Silverado diesel and the 2018 Chevy Colorado Diesel. The older truck in a larger segment with a large 6.5-liter displacement diesel engine must surely have greater torque and capacities, right? Guess again. The "smaller," modern Chevy actually matches the old 155 Silverado in every category except bed length. The new Colorado is 50% more fuel efficient but has the same power and torque as the older Silverado. The new Colorado can tow more but is down just a smidge on Max rated payload. We found the inflation-adjusted price comparison the most surprising. What spec comparison surprised you?
Hello, I looked 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 that I was interested in purchasing with the 5.3L V8 has 174,000 miles. Truck runs rough at idle, rpms are fluctuating. Check engine light is on with codes P0300 and P0301. Can’t troubleshoot the problem. Coils, spark plugs, spark plug wires, new O2 sensors, new catalytic converters. Guy says that rockers all move so it isn’t Active Fuel Management lifters and he says 150 psi of compression across all 8 cylinders. Truck was at dealership, dealership says problem with cylinder numbers 1 and 8 the P0301 explains problem with cylinder 1 but why isn’t code P0308 being thrown? What else could be the problem?
I’ve been having issues starting my 2007 Silverado 1500 and was hoping someone could give me an idea what the problem is.
- Engine struggles to turn over for 3-5 seconds before finally turning over.
- If I turn the key to the “On” position before starting it, wait 3-5 seconds THEN start the truck it turns over immediately.
- I can hear the fuel pump kick on when I set the key to the “On” position.
- Battery was replaced but the issue remains.
- Truck will start right away if it’s been sitting for less than an hour.
- Temperature shouldn’t be an issue (30-40 degrees in the morning).
- Here’s the kicker: If I use the remote start it turns over no problem.
Any help/input would be appreciated. Thank you.
