royalkangaroo replied to Sierra Dan's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI'm curious of this as well. I had stock Ranchos on my 2010 Silverado and it didn't seem to rebound has hard on bumps (maybe they were shot by 40k) My 2015 Sierra with Ranchos can get scary on any type of washboard road where the back end just wants to bounce out sideways. Add some snow, and there's potential for an accident. I'm debating Bilstein 4600 for replacement in the near future. Edit: I think the nature of opinions may have to do with an empty truck bed as well. I recently had 600lbs in the bed and it rode MUCH smoother.
royalkangaroo replied to MoonFrost's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI've had Duratracs on my 2015 Sierra for nearly a year now (12k miles) here in Vermont. No balance issues, very quiet for how aggressive they are, excellent all around performance snow/mud/rain. (and they look great) I don't think you'd go wrong with either
A few days ago I decided to clean the throttle body on my 2015 Sierra. Fast forward to this evening, I opened my hood to replace the air filter and noticed I never reconnected the air intake tube vents. Any chance I harmed my engine?
My OEM wipers had a bit of chatter, replaced with Bosch Icons and the chatter is much worse. Usually happens a little while after it starts raining, they start smooth and then chatter more the longer I drive. I use Rain X wiper fluid and it "smooths" out the wipers for a few strokes. Then it returns to chattering. Curious of those who tried shorter wipers.
I thought I saw a similar topic on here at one point but can't seem to find it. I noticed today a good amount of rust on the lugs of my 2015 Sierra when torquing my wheels today. I'm about 5000 miles away from the expiration of my bumper-to-bumper warranty. Is this something the dealership would replace? I could probably just get another set off eBay for $60. Two Vermont winters already proving harsh on her.
Anyone running aftermarket wheels with stock tire sizes? (And do you have pics?) I'd like to put 20x9 Fuels on my truck but not really sure if I want to go down the road of leveling and up-sizing tires. Curious of those who went this route and if you wish you'd have gone larger.
I’ve got a tiny tear in the leather on my steering wheel. Honestly, I believe it was like this from day 1 when I bought it new. 30,000 miles later, it’s not REALLY enough to bother me, but I do feel it from time to time. Should I just use nail clippers, trim the tab and call it a day? Maybe a tiny dab of superglue? And/or is it even worth talking to the dealership about it?
Update: I adjusted my headlights today and found from measuring at the wall to 25ft back there was no change in the level of the beam. Dialed them down ~2.5" at 25ft. Hopefully this will help other drivers and reduce getting flashed.
I've got the Rigid SAE fogs and I bought an adapter to go from the factory plug to the Rigids. https://www.amazon.com/Fog-Light-Wiring-Adapters-Deutsch/dp/B012U227KG/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1517670009&sr=1-1&keywords=Rigid+fog+adapter
Whether you're changing a bulb or replacing a bulb, HID or OEM, the process is still the same; twist the old one out, twist the new one in. The beam cutoff should not change based on a different bulb. And I agree, if you level your truck without adjusting your beam, you're impacting other drivers. If you use your light bar on the road, you're impacting other drivers. HIDs in a non-projector housing, same thing. The HID upgrade in a 2015 Sierra is similar to the setup of the 2016+ Sierra/Silverados, that's why I was curious if those owners were seeing similar behavior from other drivers as I was.
In my opinion, this is the main issue. You have a certain amount of light "projected" to an area, and that's it. If your line of sight is underneath the cutoff, you're essentially staring at high beams -- simply a problem with the system. There are certain vehicles (Mercedes comes to mind) with adaptive headlights where as you drive over a hill, the shutter comes down further to compensate and prevent blinding oncoming vehicles. Seem like it'd be beneficial on a big vehicle like our trucks. Have you adjusted your lights every time you replaced a bulb? Never seemed common practice to me. There is no flat ground in this state, haha! Certain vehicles seem to be brighter than others. I feel like I can always pick out a new Toyota Corolla based on the headlights, they're super bright/blinding.
