  1. So a little update on this issue.. I took a look at all suspension components and checked all bolts and nuts and nothing was loose or showed any signs of protentional issues. I had to take the truck in for a few other warranty items, so i added the noise to the list of things they needed to check. The next day i got a call back from the dealer stating that they wouldn't and couldn't touch the suspension since it had been lifted and that was not covered, BUT that they did find some loose parts. So told them don't touch it, ill take it back to where i got it done to take a look. ( i did the inst
  2. So i decided to go get a quote for custom box, 2 subs, amp and install at CarToys here in houston and was shocked by the cost..$3200. The installer was talking about tapping into the rear door speakers for the signal for the new amp. And everything i have read and found is stating thats not the way to do it.. I have always installed my own systems with the exception of one car back in the day, but still not sure what the big deal is about having the Bose system and adding subs to the truck. I was watching some videos this weekend after getting that wild quote and found that there i
  3. And that connection is the one under the console that connects to the amp correct? Now that the weather is getting cooler, i may finally take a look in the truck at what is envolved and what im willing to do myself. I appreciate the picture and the info on how you did it..
  4. So sounds like you made the sound wire connections in front of the factory amp correct? did i read that part right? What size subs did you go with and im assuming under the backseat is where you placed them? I looked at the low profile 10's that kicker makes, i was hoping to have reused my MTX 10's i loved those in my other cars, but i had room to run those.. I just want to have some good bass in the truck again and dont want to loose any functionality if certain things need to be replaced.
  5. So I've been reading here and other forums on this topic and still little confused.. So the truck has the Bose stereo with Nav system. So I'm somewhat satisfied with the sound quality, but its lacking that thump, In my past trucks i always had my subs installed and never any problems, but all those trucks and SUV's had the standard stereos, so there was nothing to consider or work around. This truck though seems is more involved in that in order to add some subs, you need to make sure that the amp is wired before the factory amp using certain wiring harness. So my first question is
  6. So last weekend, i was able to take care of the bezel, Not sure how it happened because the truck is not abused or taken offroad often, but was finally able to remove it from the light and found that 1 tab was broken and the factory double sided tape was all dried up and full of dirt, so it must have come loose for sometime before i even noticed. Removed all the old tape from the light and bezel, cleaned everything and applied new tape in the original locations and reinstalled and now firm and secure.
  7. Just a follow up, i can confirm that the above items from Mouser are identical parts to the kit i originally ordered from the other site.
  8. Even though i already fixed and resolved my issue with the part i order, i was determined to find it elsewhere and here it is.. I just ordered 6 housing/connectors and 12 terminals and total was only $21 shipped 2 day which is a better deal than just one from the other, but again, just posting for anyone that is looking for this connector. Housing https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/538-34062-0038 Terminals https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/538-34083-2002-LP Shipping is $7.99 so if you only need one, still little cheaper than the one belo
  9. Not sure it helps with your ask, but im running a 6.5" lift from Zone on my 2017 Z71 and the biggest i could go is 35's on my stock rims, with a 1/4" spacer.
  10. what spring fix are you referring to? Is it the leaf spring clamps? I never installed any after the lift and i did do the "add a leaf" then. But worth a try.. the odd thing is that after the dealership said they wouldnt work on it, the noise has gone away, so im still going to check all torque and look into the rear spring clamps..(if thats what you refer to)
  11. Interesting, dont need a new one, just needed to find out how to fix/correct my issue. So it seems that the factory does use double-sided tape for it.. so just need to find the time and find my tape. thanks..
  12. thought i had clicked on the correct forum when posting, no matter, new post has been created in the correct section:
  13. Last week while taking a look at what i was going to do about my ABS wiring that was cut by how i ran it after the lift, i notice that the passenger side headlight bezel was pulled away from the light a bit, upon looking it over i notice that it was pulled out of the little corner clip, but even after applying a good amount of force, it didnt really "click" back into place, but that top portion felt ok, but the middle portion of it doesnt seem to have any visible clips and applying force all around the piece, didnt seem to help. I went to the drivers side and it is secure and feels solid as if
