  1. Sorry I misspoke. The driveline shop wants $1100 for just bearings, and $1450 for a new AAM ring and pinion plus fresh bearings. Think that’s the route I’m going to go. Cheaper and less hassle then swapping the diffs and as Grumpy said I don’t know exactly what I’m getting with the salvage diff. Thanks for your input guys. I do appreciate it.
  2. I know I could probably do the job in my garage but it’s a little bit more of a mess then I want to get into. I don’t really pull anything with it but would like to keep it around as a forever truck. Whatever route I go, I’d like to not have to deal with it again.
  3. Looking for some advice with what to do with my 2015 Silverado. At 73000 miles, my pinion and carrier bearings are shot. I believe it has to do with a previous pinion seal replacement under warranty but I’m not sure how to pursue that can of worms. The way I see, I have 3 viable options. Keep in mind, I’d like to keep the truck for a while. My options are 1. replace entire diff for $1500 from a low mileage salvage and install it myself with some time in the garage. Sell the old diff to recoup some of the cost. 2. Have the dealer replace just the bearings for $180
  4. They look more like Speed Engineering to me. I’ve heard good things about them but hopefully he didn’t try to sell you something for more then he paid new. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Are you sure those are TSPs? Mine have ball flanges and didn’t turn that color. May just be an earlier version. Corsa will sound badass but it’s going to be loud AF. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Got my new plate. This thing is used to haul my kids around 90% of the time so I figured the name was fitting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks. 3” level up front rear is stock with Bilstein 5100s 315/70/17 BFG KO2s Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. 5.3 is actually 2.75” from Y-pipe connection to tail pipe. You’ll need 3”-2.75” reducers, have the factory pipe expanded, or have the muffler welded on if your just doing a 3” muffler swap. Walker also makes a 3” stainless intermediate pipe (pn 55608) that will work on these trucks.
  10. This is with the 14419 and third cat delete. The 14159 will be similar. Probably a little deeper and not quite as loud being a larger case. https://youtu.be/1I5Igb4A0BI Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’ve had Texas Speed long tubes and catted Y on my 2015 for couple years now. All stainless and fit is great. They are an excellent value for the cost compared to the other 304 stainless options. There’s a company called CFM engineering (sold by KHP performance) that just released some stainless headers for our trucks as well. Not sure on price and fitment but they look right up there with a Kooks as far as design and quality. I know people that have also had good experience with the Speed Engineering headers. I don’t believe they have a catted option though. Sent from my iPhone using Tap
  12. 14x9 Magnaflow muffler PN 11229 3” in/3” out offset Had it on the truck for a day. I know Magnaflows have a break in period but this was too quiet for me. I cut slots on one of the exits for clamping otherwise in perfect condition. $100 shipped Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. They come pre-gapped to 0.040 but probably not a bad idea to check them. I did not. I heard the coating can be damaged if you’re not careful. The back 2 are kind of a pain to get to but other then that pretty straight forward. They have a torque spec but i just went snug with a light coating of anti-seize on the threads.

  14. There’s a reason they stopped doing 100k mile powertrain warranties. I would definitely shop around. The dealerships will always be quite a bit higher then the independent shops. Some will even offer some kind of warranty and you may even find one willing to finance if you can’t front the money now. Is this the 8 speed or the 6? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
