  1. Looking to raise front end a bit on 2005 silverado 1500. Not a lot just to level it out a bit, thinking about a 1.5 in leveling kit. Is there any benefit to doing leveling kit vs cranking torsion bars? Price and recommendations for 1.5 in leveling kit?
  2. The power steering reservoir is full and there are no signs of leaks at all
  3. 05 Silverado whining while turning. Power steering fluid good and doesn't appear to be any leaks, anything else to check?
  4. Any guess on avg cost for body shop to paint white
  5. Have a clean 05 Silverado 1500, only rust at bottom on both sides front fenders. Debating whether to patch for a cheap temporary fix or replace both fenders. Any advice on patching? And if I go with replacing the fenders, any idea on cost? If I could find some used that match my truck color would they stick out ?
  6. I have a 2000 psi gas pressure washer. Was going to look into purchasing foam cannon for it. Is it safe to wash my truck with this or should I consider downgrading to an electric model? Was possibly looking at greenworks 1500 psi electric and the green works foam cannon, any recommendations ? Or is it better to use pressure washer only for foam cannon ?
  7. Update - cleaned maf sensor. Check engine light went off for about a day then back on. Has stayed on then once every few days it will disappear for half of the day then come back on. Going to check for vacuum leak fuel pressure etc. also wanted to ask if it is ok to run 87 super unleaded - that contains 10 percent ethanol I think? It's an 05 w 5.3 vin code t - not the e85 capable.
  8. I don't want to crank them all the way just a bit to make the front end somewhat level maybe an inch or two max? Not sure if that would still cause any issues?
  9. Check eng light came on 05 Silverado. MAF sensor , and the 2 lean codes mentioned above. Sometimes the engine light will go off for awhile then come back on. Runs good, no misfire. Would cleaning the maf take care of that code and any ideas on the others? Am I hurting anything by driving it until fixed
  10. Looking to level out truck a bit, is there any issues with adjusting torsion bars a bit besides a little rougher ride? Nothing crazy probably an inch to inch and a half at most
  11. Did you remove bed or just paint what you could get to?
  12. Is there any need to wire wheel away the rust or is por 15 designed to just paint over?
  13. Looking to clean up frame and undercoat 05 Silverado. Not going to remove bed or anything just going to work on this as time permits. What is the best way to go about this and what product do you recommend?
  14. How would I tell if it's bad? It seems to run good. Would it be a matter of just replacing the lifters if it goes bad? How much for an engine rebuild or used replacement? Is it possible it is still ok from afm issues?
  15. Looking at a 07 sierra 1500 nbs w the 5.3. If I buy I plan on buying a range to disable the afm immediately. Afm aside are these motors as reliable as the previous generation 5.3? It has 164k on it now, looking to get 3-4 good years out of it driving 15k a year at the most. Is that realistic and is there any other major issues with 07-13 gm trucks
