GhostWriter replied to Sean Ramnauth's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Out of curiosity, was wondering what you used to compress the front springs, during the replacement. So far, haven't found anything beefy enough that I'd use on a truck application.
Just received the same quote for the "high durability" option from Fraser. In writing, it's the best deal I've ever seen. Hope to see periodic updates. Well done.
I agree. It should. Unfortunately, I don't trust the AFM lifters - even when they're tuned out. Realize this is probably nothing more than a personal phobia, considering the odds. One other thing.........notice how low you can kneel your vehicle with a lift? My jack stands can't compete. That is, unless I dig a hole.
It was the 5-year part that seemed unrealistic. Anyways, the best part of your whole experience, me thinks, is the shop your business lucked in to. Sometimes, almost willing to kill for a lift. Well done.
Fraser motor? How'd you get a 5-year, unlimitied?
Looking at the valley cover, another AFM engine?
Wondering if anyone ever tried adding VVT to an early Gen IV (2008) 5.3? I can visualize most of the additional parts that would be needed, but was wondering if a different ECM would be required? Thanks.

GhostWriter replied to No F-bdy Bs's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Had a discussion, recently. More of a bar bet, than anything. Was trying to remember the year/years, engine, and platform that was outfitted with AFM hardware, but never activated. Always wondered about the durability of AFM components. Perhaps the L92 could provide us with some insight?
It's a small point, but they are two completely different sensors. You would never be able to mistake one for the other. I don't care for the AFM aspect of the LC9; but, it forced GM to find another place for the knock sensors; and, that's one good thing about the re-design.
Think you're probably right. I should never assume.
Assuming the L96 knock sensors are underneath the intake, so that's one of the things that might have to be considered - harness wise.
