Chris2087 replied to SVAT4's topic in 6.6L Duramax Diesel & Allison Powertrain (L5P/MGM)I had mine replaced today per the TSB, they really don't need to turn the rotors unless there is a groove or uneven wear. Mine where smooth so they didn't turn them.
Inner and Outer wear is indicative of an under inflated tire, secondary causes could be alignment. But based on the fact that both the inside and outside are warn, I think they may have them under inflated.
I have had Yokohama Geolander II (second set) on both of my 2500/3500 and really liked them https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Yokohama&tireModel=Geolandar+A%2FT+G015&partnum=67R8G015OWL&vehicleSearch=true&fromCompare1=yes&autoMake=Chevrolet&autoYear=2016&autoModel=Silverado 3500 HD 4wd&autoModClar=Single Rear Wheel
So about a month ago my horn went high pitch (low tone was inop). It was so silly that my wife and son made fun of it. I ordered the horn assembly from the dealership. It was like $36. Well today was the day I changed it out. First make sure that you use up all the windshield washer fluid. 1. Drivers side front wheel off. 2. Wheel well liner out. 3. Drivers side battery out 4. Battery tray out 5. Remove lower fender well/windshield washer bracket 6. Remove windshield washer tank (pull the pump out, disconnect low washer sensor). 7. Horn is now accessible - disconnect the harness and single bolt and pull out through the front valiance Sorry no pictures, it was cold and I forgot to document it. Chris
I had almost the exact same thing happen to me when I had the dealer install my Intellihaul camera system before I took delivery. When I was installing the mud flaps, I noticed deep gouges on the underside of the mirrors. In my case the installer used flat black paint to cover his tracks. I took it back and the dealer replaced both mirrors. Then I had intermittent camera failures, that eventfully led to both failing. Dealer replaced both cameras. This happened again about a month later, and the dealer replaced both cameras again. The remote camera failed shortly after I installed it on my travel trailer. Dealer facilitated a warranty replacement of the camera. Now its been a little more than a year and I haven't had a problem. Chris
Add mine to the wondering steering list. I had an additional symptom of metalic sounds while truning at slow speeds. Had the retighten and loc-tite TSB. Noise went away and I'll wait to see if she still wonders. Now here is the intersting part. The serice writer said that they had been advised that the replacement of the steering gears was not to be done becsue it wasnt fixing the problems. (odd I know). I said not to worry, if mine continues to wonder, they will continue to fix it. Chris
Blue DEF is fine, usually in the $11 range at Walmart. I usually wait till the 20% warning to refill. The thing is that DEF will "expire" so try to use fresh stock and avoid stockpiling it too long. Now most truck stops have bulk pumps to refill with, which I use when I am not at the warning level yet and I am getting ready to take a longer road trip.
I did a ton of research (my wife will attest) including many trips to the local installers. I didnt care for the Snugtop, and narrowed it down to the ARE and LEER. In the end I liked the edge look of the LEER as the ARE has what looked to me like a grommet along the edge that broke up the lines on the side of the truck. The prices for the ARE in my area where a little lower though. I also asked that the installer not add any of the decals or the dealer decals.
