  1. My 14 they threw everything under the kitchen sink at, new tires, wheels, LCA, rear diff and axles. Finally after 6 months of being on their rack and numerous phone calls with BBB they offered me less than I could get in trade, threatened them with a lawyer and they bought it back. Used that for the 17, it developed similar “peach seed tremble” at about 30 thousand. Took it to the dealer, they tried but after the last one I wouldnt let them go much further than telling me it had a shake. Transmission has been flushed 3 times for that shake which is different, gonna try Amsoil next instead of the new magic Mobil 1. I did recently switch to Michelin’s that have helped alot. I have the 22’s and it seems they are always out of balance, Im starting to wonder if I should get new wheels. Im going to check the balance on these at my next oild change and see if they hold.
  2. Only the ones that shake....apparently they also make a model that doesn’t. I however am 0-2.
  3. Very technical explanation I know......love that Centennial Edition by the way.
  4. Nah......just want a truck that doesn't shake my kids in the back seat like they are sitting on a washing machine or have to be in the shop 5 times a year. Embarrassing when someone rides in a 65 thousand dollar Denali that trembles like a dog shitting peach seeds. I still have mine just because its finally paid for and I cant bring myself to buy anything else and I do love alot of the features but it would be nice to have more confidence in the build quality.
  5. Just wanted to update you guys....l replaced my factory Bridgestone's with Michelin Defender M/S and 90 percent of my vibrations are gone. I had a 2014 bought back due to vibration so I am very familiar with the vibes in these trucks. I had tried spring clamps and replaced the D/S, and the 8 speed has been replaced with mobil 1 multiple time (thats a completely different and very noticeable vibration). I do have the 22’s and something I am going to keep an eye on is the balance that these tires keep. I was going to buy a new Tundra if this didn't fix it but for now the tires have really helped more than anything. I will say on my 14 they tried different wheel/tire combinations that didnt help, but at that point the dealer had thrown so much at the truck that it was to far gone. Im sure this wont help everyone but it sure helped mine. If the tires dont stay balanced I am going to try some of the new black 22’s from the T1 trucks or maybe go to 20s. Glad I dont have to buy a new truck!
  6. That why you just posted how your truck sounded like it was coming apart in February?
  7. I loved my 07 Avalanche and many GM’s before that but after tons of shaking, clunking and other issues on my 14 they bought it back and now I have a 17 Denali thats had the TQ convertor flushed 3 times and still shakes along with homemade rubber and zip ties around my leafs so it doesn't clunk every time I turn, horrible clunk and jerk 1-2 shift and already had both LCA’s replaced, all this before 36,000 miles. Brother in law has a 16 that he bought new and its already had lifters collapse 3 times. Im not bashing GM by any means, I love their stuff but the reliability is just gone, you will probably have alot of luck with the HD line, I dont know anything about them.
  8. Been looking at Tundras closely myself. Bought the wife a Highlander and theres something to this whole buy it and drive it with no issues stuff. It kills me to leave GM too but they have not been the same since bankruptcy. Good luck to you, keep checking back to see if we ever figure out the shake haha.

  10. Revolver X2for 5’8 bed. Its in good shape I am in Versailles KY. Will meet, wont ship.
  11. $125 bucks I am located in Versailles KY.
  12. Mine shudders and hard downshifts. Been flushed 3 times, right now its better but still there. Hopefully the new Tundra is nice because this is probably my last GM. Not because of this issue because I know stuff breaks, but because of the way they have handled my repairs. Its like pulling teeth to get them to do anything.
  13. Look on the post where you told me this ”you guys are better off spending $1000 for tuned rear leaf spring packs from a suspension shop. all the time you waste fighting with GM and dealerships makes no sense, shit you just spent $38,000 on the truck , what's another $1,000 in improvements.. the springs are not designed correctly but they are what they are . fix it yourself or live with it. GM cant legally admit guilt” I posted a picture of the new leafs with the part numbers.
  14. Don't count on that, I did it and had to take it back off because it made it worse. I did send it back to see if the driveshaft was still balanced and the performance driveline has been great so maybe it was damaged in shipping. What helped mine the most was having a dealer do the torque converter flush. It was the third time for mine but I recently switched dealers because the dealer where I purchased my truck is a joke on the maintenance side. I think the people performing the work are the key ingredient to finding the peoblem.
  15. Cant argue with your reasoning there.....
