  1. E85???

    If you download the Murphy drive app you can actually filter for e85 stations it's the most accurate 85 search tool I found granted is only for their gas. Even the dealy website that tracks all e85 stations is way off in their mappings Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. This video is worth watching before you install a cam: I have been debating doing this for quite a while but I'm not sure if the benefits outweigh the negatives Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  3. The front ends is the most God ugly I have ever seen it reminds me of a 1970s Ford 4000 tractor Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. Bilstein shocks thread

    I did look at RockAuto they don't stock this part. I ordered from GM parts direct but they wants three weeks to deliver it which seems absurd, they did offer 3 day delivery but wanted $140.00 for shipping which is ridiculous. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Yes definitely better ride but I'm bummed that finding a new top strut mount to such a difficult task finally found one on Amazon but they want a hundred bucks for next day shipping or free shipping but I have to wait 14 days Very surprised that summit doesn't stock this part Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Finally got the right parts for my truck installed and they lasted all of 3 days before this happened Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  7. 3 days after I got my Bilstein 5100 installed ( this time with the correct parts) It would appear that the top strut mount/ isolator has failed. Can anybody tell me if I just need a top mount or are there other components and I'm going to need to replace, the GM schematics I'm able to find online do not make it clear if a new top mount assembly comes with the rubber isolator or not.

  8. FYI - Good deal on Cooper ST MAXX

    I got my Cooper at3 275/70/r18's about 6 months ago and love them previously I had some Toyo open country at2's in 285/65r18 We recently put 285/65r18 ko2s on my wife's 2008 Silverado, and she is hating life as not only are they quite a bit louder than my tires but her gas mileage has plummeted. Although the 275 is slightly narrower and doesn't look as tough on the truck it is technically a taller tire and I get about 1.5 MPG better, then with the Toyo's They also happen to be the quietest AT tire I've ever owned. The xlt's look nice I will probably look great on your truck but they will decrease fuel economy Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

  11. Bilstein shocks thread

    Yes I have already ordered the parts and I did take the time to call the original installer who told me to go pound sand when I brought it to their attention that they did not install the parts that I had purchased on my truck Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  12. Bilstein shocks thread

    Just as a quick update I had an opportunity to talk to Bilstein today and indeed the valving is significantly different between the GM 900 parts and the correct parts 4 the K2 trucks. Below is a brief summary of the differences Front: 24-186940 vs. 24-238304 1. Rebound: -1000n (-225lbf) 2. Damping: -100n (-25lbf) 3. Shock body is .5 shorter 4. Snap ring locations are higher on the body Rear: 24-186742 vs. 33-238319 1. Rebound: -200n (44.9lbf) 2. Damping: -200n (-44.9lbf) 3. Shock is .75 shorter, thus overextended Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  13. Bilstein shocks thread

    No no this is not an issue with Summit they sold me the correct parts I am simply saying the installer which was a retail location in Phoenix, apparently installed the wrong parts or someone else is parts but not what I had brought with my vehicle Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  14. Bilstein shocks thread

    I can't even begin to describe how frustrated and embarrass I am at this moment. When I originally had my 5100's set-up installed 3 years ago, I bought the parts directly from Summit about a week after they were made available, however after having them installed it simply never even occurred to me to actually check the part numbers since I Supplied the installer with the parts. ( Top rated 4 x 4 shop in Phoenix Arizona). Last night while installing my powerstop z36 brake kit I started really staring at the part stickers on my shocks and after a bit of research realized that the parts that I paid for we're not the parts that were installed and I have been driving around for 3 years with the wrong parts. Certainly a brave keyboard Warrior will likely flame me stating that I should have figured this out sooner however I had them on their highest setting for quite a while and figured that the miserable ride was due to me having the front adjustable shocks at their maximum setting, thus I have simply tolerated it until recently when I had them moved to the next lower snap ring setting and the harsh ride continues. I have studied the part numbers for hours on end on a plethora of websites and there is really no good detail to help correlate what the differences are beyond the fact that the rear shocks are a bit shorter by about an inch. I guess I will have to call Billstein during their normal business hours, to figure out how big of a problem this really is or if the differences are actually inconsequential. Current Front: 24-186940 ( pre 05 - 2013 trucks) Current Rear: 24-186742 ( For GM 900 ) Correct parts for our 2014: Proper Front: 24-238304 (Adjustable) Proper Rear: 33-238319 Could one of my Texas brothers please come over and just shoot me in the head...
