I have 3" lift spindles but they are just a cheap Ebay set I found. they have been working great with no issues. I havent looked at the maxtrac or CST. Maybe someone else will chime in with knowledge of them. Good Luck on which ever you choose. Are you doing the install yourself?
That's good to hear. Any idea how long the yoke is with out pulling the driveshaft? For now I just plugged the hole in the middle where it was leaking with some RTV, I dont know how this will effect the transmission but for now it has stopped the leak. I found a few sites where other have done the same, some people said not to because it is a vent hole. Hope the RTV keeps working until I can start to pull it apart looking for a bad O-ring.
So I have a new problem that started about a week ago. The transmission slip yoke is leaking from the small hole at the U-joint. The rear seal is bone dry so I know that's good and not the issue. From what I can find online, I have a bad O-ring in the tail shaft. Anyone else ever has this issue and if so what was the corrective action? My truck is also has 5" lift blocks in the back, not sure if maybe I don't have enough engagement for the slip yoke? whats the best way to measure?

willyr1er replied to willyr1er's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra Troubleshootingdid this start once you got the tires? Are you lifted/leveled?
I just swapped the blocks out yesterday and everything is fine. Airbags are now back aligned and no other issues to be seen yet. If any issues come up Ill swap them back and just try shimming the air bag mount.
Just want to see what people think here. Right now I have 5" tapered blocks and my air bag\ mounts are really out of shape, bottom mount is not sitting under the top mount now, it is angled back do to the tapered blocks. I ordered a set of flat 5" blocks but dont know if this will cause any issues with the pinion angle. Let me know what your thoughts are. Worst case I will just test it out when I get them.
Bob, It was $1350, broken down to: 416.82 Yukon Ring and Pinion 4.10 364.58 Master Install Kit 56.52 Valvoline SynPower 500 Labor I know this is on the high end but I know that the shop and trust them when I cannot do something. Time wise from ordering to install was about 2.5 weeks. Installing was a day and half. So far MPG seems to have dropped 1-2. Also might help if I wasn't enjoying leaving stop lights now, lol.
