Been running 33" Duratrac's since August of 2012, ~40k miles on them and they're just now getting to the point that they talk a little. I've had them balanced and rotated every 5k miles. They've been great on and off road. Its best if you keep them aired up at 45PSI, provides a nice ride as well as being quiet but you can still use them offroad. I've only aired them down once for better traction in snow and ice, otherwise they've stayed the same.
Thanks, its going in on Friday so they can look at it. Getting tired of seeing the warning messages come up.
Lots of good information, I definitely appreciate it. I'm in the dark when it comes to how brakes and transmissions work for the most part. I had suspected caliper slide bolts but never thought that a rotor machined too thin could cause an issue. I'll be taking the truck in on Friday for the Stabilitrak issue and I'll have them look over the brakes to see if they can spot anything.
2009 Silverado 1500 Z71 4x4 Crew Cab, 68,259 miles when replaced. Current miles are 84,409. July of last year I replaced the brakes all the way around, had the front rotors turned and bought new drums for the rear. Fast forward to this month and I just replaced the front rotors and brakes because both sides had worn a groove into the rotor and there was no pad left on the outside brake pad. Good pressure on the calipers, almost too much pressure, and the slide bolts nor the caliper piston appears to be stuck. When sitting with the engine on and foot off of the brake the pads are touching the rotor. Something isn't right but I can't figure out what. Will probably be taking it to the dealer on Friday.
2009 Silverado 1500 Z71 4x4 Crew Cab, 84,000 miles. Lately I've been having an issue where the DIC chimes and I see Service StabiliTrak, Service Traction Control come across the screen. Unlike alot of people the truck doesn't enter Reduced Engine Power mode and it seems to run and drive just fine. 90% of the time it will only do this when it is cold outside, under 40F. Any suggestions on what could be going on? Is it the throttle body issue?
