I've used e30 90% of the time for the last 25,000 miles on my 2016 5.3 (non-flex fuel). The other 10% was e10 when I'm not near a station with a blender pump. Truck runs great. Torque app shows timing is significantly advanced running e30 vs. e10. I would have to run a couple thousand miles on e10 to make a firm conclusions, but I have not seen any loss in mpg. Over the last year e30 has averaged about 40 cents a gallon less than e10 here, or about 16%. If the mileage really is the same on e10 and e30, I'm saving about $500 a year running e30.
My owner's manual says rear to front, then cross fronts going to the rear, so that's what I do. Tire Rack and others say the same. On the wife's front wheel drive, its the same idea. Drive tires stay on the same side and the other axle gets switched when it goes to the drive axle.
I thought the same thing... then I realized that the reason the full part number wan't listed was because they are only taking preorders now. They mentioned in their blog on January 3 that since Bilstein released the Tahoe/Yukon versions that they expect the pickup 6112's to be available soon. Still waiting.
Thanks for the info! I just ordered a set of 4. I have a set of 1/2" slip on spacers on my front now but have been wanting bolt on spacers. I knew 1.25" would fit but would rather not push them out quite so far. This looks just right - subtle but noticeable.
One time while I was jump starting a tractor from my truck my radio shot to full volume and kept returning to full volume immediately after I turned it down. Restarting the truck didn't help. Disconnecting the battery fixed it. I attributed it to the voltage being thrown off when I was connecting or disconnecting the jumper cables.
I have had this happen a few times right after start up. I noticed that I got a ding at every gear change (8 speed). I think there may have also been dings from hitting the radio or a/c controls, but its been so long that I can't say for sure. It would quit dinging in less than a minute.
I had my truck in a couple days ago for the airbag recall and they told me there was also a recall for 4 HI possibly getting locked in or out, can't remember which. It was the first I had heard of it as well. Said all they did was reprogram the 4x4 module. I hadn't experienced any problems but I can count on 1 hand the number of times I have used 4 HI. Haven't noticed any problems switching between auto and 2 HI.
After 15 years in the same truck, I am going to pick up a new Sierra Monday afternoon. I have been trying to get a private offer for weeks now but have had no luck getting a pop up, just "request a quote." If anyone can help me out, let me know!
