UrbanRage started following Bilstein shocks thread, Loud metallic rattle from behind rear driver side seat back, Exhaust fumes from other vehicles? and and 2 others
UrbanRage replied to bdmd5093's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingI have the same sound and it is from the passenger side rear seat. I've looked at the seat bolts and seatbelt bolts. It does it when the seat is up and down, but it is louder when the seat is down. It's driving my fkin crazy. Once I have the time, I plan on having my wife drive while I'm in the back seat.
Sorry for the extremely late reply. I haven't been on here very much lately. The install was completed and I' very happy with the results. The Bilstein on the highest setting provided the perfect amount of lift. I do have very minor rubbing on the wheel liner. I'm sure I could fix it, but honestly to me isn't worth the time......yet.....hahaha.. I will say the ride is definitely much stiffer than the stock shocks and you do feel minor bumps in the road. The Continental tires are great! The ride, noise level and traction is awesome. I will be buying these again.
Just had the dealership install the Bilsteins on top setting and new Continental TerrainContact 275-60-20 tires. The price was amazing and really glad I have a good rapport with the Service Manager. The stance is perfect with just a slight rake and I now understand what others have said about the ride quality.. no regrets at all!! I don't have many miles on the tires but there was an immediate difference with traction on wet roads, handling and the road noise is no different the SRAs.
I should have everything installed around the first week of Oct. I will post my results afterwards.
Thank you for taking the time to reply. I do appreciate it. I'm going to bit the bullet and install the shock on the top setting.
So from what I'm reading, if I use the highest setting on the Bilteins the tires will rub.
Great looking truck!!!
Thanks guys, yes I have read many pages in the Bilstein thread. I was hoping to just get the people with 20" rims.
UrbanRage posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI've been looking and reading like a madman and I could really use some help/advise. I installed the rear Bilstein shocks which was a huge improvement over the Ranchos. So now my biggest decision is, which setting on the front shocks and tire combo to go with. My end goal is to maintain a little bit of a rake and no tire rub. - Front shocks at 3rd setting. If the highest setting will still provide a little rake I'm good with that. - Tires I'm eyeballing - Continental TerrainContact A/T, size 275/60 R20......anyone have these? If would you please post some pictures of your setup and also let me know if you rub. I really appreciate the help/advise.
I apologize if this has been asked before, but is there a "How To" somewhere in this 100+ page thread? I have looked online and can't anything for a 2017 Sierra. The directions that came with the shocks don't break it down to the truck. Thanks in advance!
This questions is geared more to the individuals that left their truck at the stock height with 5100s. I do understand that the shock will absorb potholes and large bumps better, but cruising down the road, is the ride better? Thanks to any input you can provide.
