    Could you throw some of this stuff on the welds to sure it up? https://www.mastercool.com/product/alum-bond/ Might be a great preventative measure for those of us without the leak! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I ran snow tires on my truck since I owned it and switched mid winter to Falken Wildpeak AT3W, they have the severe service snow rating (mountain w/ snowflake symbol). The only difference I can see between the winter tires and the AT tires is on ice which they both suck on. I can't tell any difference in stopping /acceleration/turning on snow, slush, powder. I'm a firm believe in winter tires but these new ATs are really good.
  3. I had a 2013 Mustang 5.0 modded, probably 400 hp at the wheels. I put snow tires on it and drove it around in the winter. I would take my truck with a good all terrain tire over my mustang with snow tires hands down. Any thing over 6-8 inches of snow the mustang wouldn’t go anywhere. Stopped on a hill? Prepare to go nowhere and maybe sideways up the hill. I could park my truck in a foot or two of snow off of state game land roads and throw it in 4wd and climb right out. Try that with a RWD car with snow tires...good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My truck was under warranty at the time! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Here is my repair order, looks like I had the issue! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I had an issue with braking on my 2015 Silverado. The brake pedal would get super stiff at low speed and the truck would barely brake. Almost ran into a light pole at Walmart. I will have to pull the work order, I think Chevy replaced the master cylinder or something. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Does anyone else NOT notice body panel gaps? They don’t really stick out to me when purchasing a vehicle (unless it’s really horrible and really noticeable). I would have never noticed it on this High Country. Not discrediting OP in anyway because I find that unacceptable on such an expensive truck. I think it’s an older generation thing, like 50+. Both my dad and my uncle pointed out my bumper gaps on my 2015, which I never noticed after 6 months of ownership. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I ended up bleeding the rear brakes again. All is well now. The brakes feel like factory now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Put some washers on that T-30 torx bolt, movement gone! Nice job to whoever figured that out. Worked great and took about 15 minutes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Was able to get the bleeders out using the socket I posted earlier! Now I have a spongy brake pedal [emoji25]! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yea I went ahead and bought a 10mm brake bleeder wrench. Which is a 6 point wrench that is offset. I should be ok now (hopefully)! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Yea they rust a lot quicker up in Canada! The underbody on my truck is pretty good. Not a lot of rust. I’m just hoping I can get the old bleeder out and not snap it off in the caliper. Did you by chance use any of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000QW6K8I/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_UUz7BbN42NCRY? I have had great luck with them in the past. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Wow! Makes me not want to touch the fronts at all now. I was getting them to rotate with a 6 point socket but that doesn’t help me to bleed them. But at least I think I can get them out with a bolt extractor. Crazy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I went to bleed the brakes on my 2015 Silverado 1500. Started with passenger rear and was able to get them bleed out but almost rounded the hex until it wouldn’t close. Moved on to the driver side same result, except couldn’t get this one closed as it got completely rounded. The screws are super tight! I ended up ordering some new bleeder screws and will probably end up changing both sides. I’m pissed that this is happening on a 3 year old truck, never had such issues when bleeding brakes! I just hope I can get the old screws out, or it looks like I’ll be getting some new calipers. Anyone else having this issue? Any tips? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
