  1. Black Bear Tune and Airaid intake tube is all. If I ever get the money I'd like a supercharger. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk. My build thread: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/index.php?/topic/192614-Tenscourts'-2016-LTZ/Z71-CCSB-4WD-Silverado
  2. I've done a couple launches on dry pavement. One hooked up immediately with no wheel spin and the other appeared to spin both wheels immediately until they hooked up but that was brand new slick asphalt. I didn't need the TrueTrac but I liked the idea of not having anything that would truly lock and potentially break. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  3. So the continued clicking appears to have come from one of my rear brake rotors clipping the caliper. The best we can tell the spacers between the rotor and caliper have compressed allowing a high spot in the edge of the rotor to contact the caliper. The spacers were replaced and the knocking noise appears to have stopped. I will continue to monitor the situation. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  4. For anyone who may come across this post later the replacement diff resolved the play around the C clip on the driver side. There is still a cyclical noise when coasting at lower speeds that's about one "click" per revolution of the tire. As soon as you give it any throttle the noise goes away. I'm not sure if it's a lapping or break-in issue or normal operation for this application. I've read many posts in different places complaining of the same issue and many saying theirs were silent although I can't find anyone who's made this swap in a 2014-2018 model truck for direct comparison. I'll update further when I have more information. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  6. I would imagine rough country did plenty of testing with their lifts. Even if there is added stress I can't imagine it would cause immediate failure. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  7. As long as the lift you had installed was meant for a 4wd and properly installed I don't know why you wouldn't. Obviously research your lift to see if anyone else has experienced the same issue. Was the lift from a reputable brand? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk. My build thread: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/index.php?/topic/192614-Tenscourts'-2016-LTZ/Z71-CCSB-4WD-Silverado
  8. Sounds like you've got it covered. Good luck! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk. My build thread: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/index.php?/topic/192614-Tenscourts'-2016-LTZ/Z71-CCSB-4WD-Silverado
  9. Just realized I hadn't responded and also the wire I tapped was for the puddle lights which won't help you but I'm sure there is something you can tap. I'll see what I can find if you haven't made any headway. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  10. If they flagged your truck as voided warranty I'm not sure any dealer can help you. I would also think they would need to provide a reason for voiding the warranty. Call another dealer and see if they can confirm the voided warranty. Ask for the reason in writing. Call GM and start a complaint. And be sure to hammer the them on any surveys you receive. I'd try all of that and if you still can't get anywhere my next step would be a lawyer but you can do the rest for free. If the shop that did the work is reputable they make can write you a letter or something as well. The shop I use does upfits for dealers so it's hard for them to cry fowl when they they are using the same shop. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  11. I have a 2016 Silverado 1500 Z71 CCSB with a 4 inch BDS lift. It's in the shop right now for regular maintenance (100k diff, transfer case, trans fluids, plugs, wires etc.) While the cover was off I had them replace the G80 with a Detroit TrueTrac. During the test drive they noticed a clicking noise when coasting. It appears there is some play around the C clip on the driver's side allowing it to rub against the carrier. The current hypothesis is the part was machined incorrectly allowing the play. A replacement is expected Monday. I'm concerned we'll see the same issue with the replacement. Does anyone have any feedback? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk. My build thread: http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/index.php?/topic/192614-Tenscourts'-2016-LTZ/Z71-CCSB-4WD-Silverado
  12. If they can't prove the lift caused the failure then they have to cover it. If it failed again then they could point to the lift as the cause. I had a strut squeaking. Service manager claimed it was my leveling kit. He said he would cover it once but when it happens again GM will fight it. The replacement never squeaked at least to the point I went full Fox shocks all the way around. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  13. Stance is dependent on the wheels, tires, lift, etc. Only you can decide what's noticeable. I don't have sway bars but plenty of people do. A lot of this is preference. I personally wouldn't run a spacer that wasn't hub centric and if studs had to be cut I'd get it professionally done. Hopefully others will chime in. I certainly don't claim to be an authority.

  14. I have 2-in spacers in the rear of my truck to match the track in the front. The front track was pushed out by the BDS lift that I had installed. There are plenty of horror stories when it comes to spacers. The bottom line is it boils down to the quality of spacer and the quality of the installation. I chose Bora spacers because they're hubcentric and quality material.The shop that installed my lift also installed my spacers and they do my tire rotations along with my regular services because I know they will torque the wheel spacers and lift properly. And I'm pretty sure anything less than 2 in will require you to shave your studs. I also have flares so the side of my truck doesn't get beat up from debris thrown by the tires. Whatever you do don't get cheaply made spacers because you don't want to see a wheel flying off at 70 mph on the freeway. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk.

  15. Do you have the newer version I think they came out with in 2018? The original version didn't have enough power for newer phones. The upgraded version works fine if your phone fits in the tray.
