  1. Need more info... In general 22's on MRC ride like azz, esp... the factory bridgestones, tire brand is important, IMO if it aint Michelin I wont run them on any of my vehicles. I am betting since you cant see your suspension level sensor reading, I'd bet its off regardless of the sales pitch plug and play. I am fairly positive there is no relearn, your MRC relocation need adjustment, after working MB suspension systems for years, foolish to think a DIY'er can eye ball a level sensor. Dealership will charge you CP to zero the suspension. Do yourself the VCX nano, best tool I purchased in a very long time.
  2. Any way to reset learning?

    GM 8 speed TSB 18-NA-355 https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/208800-2017-silverado-develops-shake-and-shudder-17000-miles/?page=3
  3. Any way to reset learning?

    GDS2 is used for some 2013, & pretty much most 2014+ vehicles tech2 shouldn't even allow you access to your 2014 vehicle (at lease with my software). SPS is for programming/updating firmware & software modules, a trans shift relearn is done via GDS2. Yes I use the VCX nano. You more than likely need the latest TSB flush.
  4. Best way to flush brakes

    OP you asked for the best! My favorite tool, pressure bleeding is recommended over vacuum, VCX nano will allow for GDS2 so you can bleed your ABS. Brake bleeder (separates air from fluid via diaphragm ) https://www.amazon.com/GearWrench-3795D-Brake-Bleeder-Tank/dp/B003U459B8/ref=ice_ac_b_dpb?crid=3G0WRUPT4EGA7&keywords=gearwrench+brake+bleeder&pd_rd_i=B003U459B8&pd_rd_r=f4f2c228-84b7-4a63-9684-64eb280e3ff6&pd_rd_w=wE99L&pd_rd_wg=12cCo&pf_rd_p=f0479f98-a32d-45cd-9c12-7aaced42b1ec&pf_rd_r=R8Z67PEQ6W52YBW8GDV9&qid=1558396648&s=gateway&sprefix=gear+wrench+brake+%2Caps%2C255 GM adapter https://www.amazon.com/Power-Probe-BA04-Bleeder-Adapter/dp/B0037668CI/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_2?keywords=power+probe+gm+brake+adaptor&qid=1558396760&s=gateway&sr=8-2-fkmrnull Brake fluid catch can. https://www.amazon.com/Allstar-Performance-ALL11017-Bleeder-Bottle/dp/B00F9XHVKA/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=brake+fluid+catch+can&qid=1558396976&s=gateway&sr=8-5 VCX (there's nothing you can't do with this VS dealership.) you'll need a laptop. https://www.amazon.com/VXDIAG-Tech2Win-Diagnostic-Programming-System/dp/B074365Q6H/ref=sxts_sxwds-bia?keywords=vcx+nano&pd_rd_i=B074365Q6H&pd_rd_r=a7ae5411-eaef-4ea4-a745-bc8818386e32&pd_rd_w=VxXMF&pd_rd_wg=pfmgD&pf_rd_p=f0479f98-a32d-45cd-9c12-7aaced42b1ec&pf_rd_r=MQAR608RQ7PKXXGX1BYK&qid=1558396851&s=gateway Yes I use these on my vehicles, they are well used & tested.
  5. Brake Replacement/Upgrade

    the parts may be standard now, the only difference I see is the different model years rotors/pads, w/ or w/o police package show the same part number, only thing I see is rotor being different for improved cooling or thermal. In DD you will not notice any difference. I want to note here stock wheels and tires, once you go aftermarket heavy wheels, bigger tires the change in braking is more dramatic. OP, you might have a vacuum pump issues. I have done many GM big brake retrofits, through my years of working on vehicles both professional (local police MB vehicles) and personal GM, & some for my close friends on many different cars/trucks, always came down to 2 things, go to a bigger rotor (swept area & leverage advantage ) & FPC's, even with crappy pads it was miles better than pads and rotors. I have 15" rotors on my 19" wheels on my CTSV, my Denali truck has wimpy 13" rotors under factory 20's with a massive weight difference between the vehicles... really GM?
  6. Brake Replacement/Upgrade

    There is no difference on the brakes, the part numbers are the same. Chevy Tahoe front pads....(Sierra/Silverado trucks) 84320501 , w or w/o or 4wd all the same. So much bad info... listed on here. if you want a upgrade and only if your wheels can fit it, either get the GM big brake upgrade or try 2019 trucks FPC.
  7. Truck scanner for DIY'er

    SPS = service programming system. It will do anything a dealer tech can do, GDS2 is used for 2014+ trucks, and you can view all the vehicle modules & data. I have a 2016 and updated my HMI via SPS.
  8. sunroof in a vehicle is useless, lets stay on topic.
  9. You guys paid for a hole in your roof! again PPF.
  10. You need PPF before you need window tint. glad your back, but I skipped on the 22's, sunroof (literally the most worthless option on any vehicle), chrome hooks. I hope you opt'ed for extended warranty since those 22's are gonna eat those MRC shocks.
  11. Tire rotation every 7500mi

    I use the EL-50448 OEC-T5, I have used it on my 2016, not sure what you guys think is different they are 314.5/315MHz or 433MHz if you had a strong enough magnetic it would work as well.
  12. Truck scanner for DIY'er

    The scan tools you guys are looking at are a joke. You want to see what GM sees, these handhelds are really not worth it anymore. Get this if you have a laptop... trust me. VCX Nano programmer https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074365Q6H/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 <- this tool will let you do anything a GM dealer tech can do. I would NOT recommend the wifi version Allows Tech2, GDS2 (via VM), & SPS programming. you can get SPS programming for 1 VIN for 24months/2years for $40 +tax. SPS subscription is required for programming or updating modules. https://www.acdelcotds.com/ I am running windows 10 64 bit, works great.
  13. Yes they will fit, but the lock/unlock button wont work requires a proximity sensor and proximity key and all the wiring harnesses Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. If you mean these doorhandles in the link below then yes https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/200876-2016-escalade-illuminated-door-handles/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
