  1. I really just noticed this, and I think it only happened recently...the passenger glass seems loose. Not the head itself, just the glass...driving down the road it sort floats around while the driver's side is perfectly still. Is this something common? Anything that can be done short a new mirror? This is a 2012 2500hd, standard mirrors (not towing mirrors)... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  2. I found Ford LSD additive to work the best to cure chatter...better than the typical Sta-lube you find at most parts houses. But that's my findings on two non-GM differentials... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  3. Look to see if there is a block under the springs in the rear...the bags look stretched to me... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. To be truthful, it's been a while since I've seen a UOA that showed an oil that was at condemnation limits at 10k miles...I'm sure there are, but between the tolerances of the newer engine components, improved fuels, and the quality of oils; it doesn't seem as prevalent as it once did...

  5. That's how I read it as well... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. Got the truck back and wow, there must have been something out of order for a while. Not that the truck stopped bad before the repair. But now it's back to being able to put the passenger's nose in the dash with limited pressure on the pedal. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. The only CUCVs I found must have been gold plated...bought this truck with no rust for almost half of what the CUCVs with rust were going for in this area, and that was a lucky buy as the 1st gen Dodge trucks are starting to get expensive. So new toy to play with! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. I trust this guy, if he said it needs done; it needed done... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  9. Well, not quite 165k and the hydroboost started pissing fluid all over...no idea where it's coming from, took it to my local garage. Two day wait from Napa, dealer had no ETA for one. They also found the master cylinder was wet on the backside where it mates to the hydroboost, so replacing that as well. First issue I've had with a hydroboost system, and I've got over a million miles behind them with three trucks. Probably just the oddball, seems like the don't stock them because they don't typically give trouble... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk
  10. Moot point, buying a 1st gen Dodge Cummins... Sent from my SM-T350 using Tapatalk

  12. Well, I'm selling a non-running project that I will never get to, planning to convert that cash into a running/driving toy. I'm fairly set on either a k30 CUCV or a 1st Gen Dodge Cummin (1989 to 1993). I understand the majority of the CUCV driver train (NA Detroit powerplant, auto trans [th400?], chain drive tcase, corp14/Dana60). What are the inherent weaknesses of that platform? Obviously finding one rust free may present a problem in Pennsylvania, isn't there a "black box" and glow plugs on the Detroit that cause grief? I guess the other question would be driveability? 4.56s, a non-OD trans, and a diesel may not allow much road speed? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. Flange kit is probably the washer and the locking nut... The Dodge dealer staked my old nut on when they attempted the repair on the Dodge 2500 I had...truck under warranty. Talk about a heated discussion over that... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. I had an 11.5AAM in a Dodge with a pinion leak, looked like the Valdez leaking, I had to drive it to Washington (state) and then home (Pennsylvania). In all those miles and looking like the oil was running out of the pinion, it hardly made a dent in the oil level in the differential. Gear oil seems to make a larger mess than the volume. If it's just wet and dripping slightly, it shouldn't hurt to drive it a while. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  15. It could be just the opposite...I've seen toyhaulers that have almost centered axles...it could be bouncing worse because the trailer becomes tail heavy/lighter on the tongue when the weight is removed. Ideally, the bars should be set with a loaded trailer...probably could run without the WDH with no load (assuming a 2500). I adjust mine whether I have water or not (50 gallons way forward of the axles). Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
