  1. My recommendation is the Toyo, I've ran them on about 5 trucks and SUVs and I've never been disappointed. 65k warranty and generally get more than that. Smooth quiet ride and great traction. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  2. Toyo Open Country at2 best all around traction and quiet ride. Also have a 65k warranty. I've been selling the Toyo for 13 years and can count on one hand the complaints I've gotten and those are from Michelin people. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  3. I'm pretty sure gm put 2 or 3 different style control arms in the trucks. Aluminum, stamped and cast. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  4. The vacuum pump supplies the vacuum for the booster. If they think it's the booster then they're not real smart. The pump is the most common failure for these trucks. Most likely the salesman did a poor job translating what the tech told him. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  5. Sounds like your vacuum pump failed. It's on an extended warranty program. Have it serviced asap so it doesn't do more damage. I replaced mine the week I bought my truck, because the dealer wouldn't fix it for me. Then a month later the extended warranty and recall came out. The recall is just to reprogram the ebcm to help out with power assist under certain circumstances. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  6. That is true and unfortunately in Michigan that's not allowed. So I'll have to be happy with what I've got. Overall they're a great tire. Look sweet, minimal noise and great traction. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  7. The 04 also had torsion bar suspension which isn't as smooth in my opinion. The 5100s are great shocks. I had them on my 04 and now on my 15. I've also installed them on numerous costumers vehicles who were unhappy with their factory installed ranchos and Monroe reflex replacements. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  8. I can finally comment on the ridge grapplers snow capabilities and they are pretty great. Not sure about their abilities on ice, but mine handled very well in the deep snow and slush. They're also 305mm wide so that's not helping the situation. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  9. From reading other, more knowledgeable people's posts on here, I'd say that it's definitely not great for long term health of your trans. Might want to look into the tstat mod or something similar to keep your temps a little lower. I'm sure someone wiser will chime in soon. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  10. Not the Bridgestone, no offense to anyone. In my 16 years of being in the Automotive/ tire industry I've never had anyone happy with the offroad abilities of that tire in all of its generations. Toyo at2 is a great option that will be easier on the wallet. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  11. Bank 2 is the passenger side, it's possible the catalytic converter is failing on that side. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  12. There's a special tool used when the injectors are stuck in the head. I got lucky on mine and it only took some light prying and wiggling to get it out. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  13. Direct injection fuel systems are definitely louder than normal port fuel injection. The fuel system pressures are much higher and there's a tendency for the injectors and high pressure pump to make some noise. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  14. Listen for a puffing noise coming from your intake. I had the same code and it was caused by bad injector compression seals. Get a scanner and check misfires to pinpoint the problem cylinder. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  15. I've been installing 1000s of Moog products a year for the last 16 years and they have definitely gotten worse in quality. I find myself having to warranty them out way more than I used to. They're still redesigning and making improvements to them, but their longevity is decreasing. My thought is that they are trying to bring their price down to be competitive with the cheaper brands. They even introduced the rk line of control arms that are complete garbage, but most parts stores replaced the ck/k line with the cheaper version. Unfortunately this is most likely due to consumers wanting the cheapest parts possible. A lot of people would rather spend $10 on a part and replace it every year then spend $40 and never replace it again. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
