  1. I use Amsoil so I perform the oil changes at home. You can cut out the labor charges and roll that into higher quality oil for you vehicle.
  2. Look into some traction bars for the rear, that would help
  3. I bought them directly from Morimoto's website. The relays are humming on my setup too, so we may have the same issue. For reversing the polarity, you just swapped the wires on the plug that goes from the capacitor to the relay?
  4. Only the passenger side HID works as a DRL. Morimoto replaced both relays for me but I am still having the same issue. When I swap the plug, it jumps to the drivers side. Both work at night, and I have the capacitor that comes with the kit installed as well. Electrical issues are tough, any thoughts? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. MHTook mine to the dealer last week, there was an update for the chassis control module so they did that and seemed to solve the problem, cost me $172. Well I am going back today because the same service message popped up again several times this week. Will find out what they have to say this time around.
  6. Trans temps

    Its totally normal, even with the HD cooling system.
  7. Transfer Case Fluid

  8. Have not considered Eibach yet. Other than the springs coming the with kit, any advantages over the 5100s?
  9. Rancho RS9000XL vs Bilstein 5100 I am at 72k and preparing/saving up for shock replacement on all four corners. I like the that the Rancho RS9000XL can be adjusted (claimed 400% difference between lowest and highest setting). I always hear good things about the Bilstein 5100s though. Any experience with the Rancho RS9000XL shocks?

  10. Never heard of this. Following...
  11. Falken Wildpeak AT3W is the best AT tire. I have really enjoyed my set. Considering I am a spirited driver on and off road, they are wearing very well for being at 36k-37k. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. Negative ghost rider. I have 275/55/R20 and they are not LT tires, so I think that is where the disconnect is. Chalk test is still the best way to check if the tires have proper pressure. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. First suggestion, perform the chalk test. Easy to do and accurate. Check it out on YouTube. Second, I have a 14 crew cab short bed ltz z71, same tires with around 36k on them now (amazing tires) I have always run them at the stock pressure of 32 psi. 40 is way too high unless you are hauling something. 32 psi has kept them wearing evenly. Another thing to keep in mind is that the tire pressure increases 1 psi for every 10 degrees increase. So if you set them at 40 cold psi and start down the highway on a hot summer day, they will jump up to 42 psi or better. Which again is way too high and they will hit wear properly.
  14. I think everyone on here will tell you to go with Bilstein 5100 shocks
  15. If I am being honest, this sounds like an opportunity to upgrade to a 2500HD. After upgrading the shocks and suspension, then you will likely want more power and then you will be on the slippery slope of drowning a good down payment for a new truck into upgrades for your current one. More specific to your concern, going with air bags are the best option.
