  1. I'm gonna have the U-joints changed as well.
  2. Update: shake has returned but at a higher speed and RPM than before all the parts mentioned were replaced. Now I'm curious if it is suspension/driveline/brake related.
  3. Am I the only one that notices how bad the GMT400s "hop" when slowing down? Mine does it every single time around the 45-50mph mark. it stops once the truck is slower than 45mph. I do feel the brake pedal pulsing while this occurs so that seems to be the ABS system. Is there any remedy to make this smoother on a 97 K1500? Thanks, Brandon
  4. I looked there first, but the only black bowtie i could find had the red outline, which I don't want. I'm looking for a solid black bowtie.
  5. I recently mounted a set of 2019 silverado wheels on my 1997 GMT400. These wheels have black bowties on the center caps and I think it would look very nice to have matching bowties on my truck. I haven't been able to find a valid source that supplies guaranteed fitment of Black Bowties for the grille, and door panels. Would it be easier for me to just find some covering material and cut out the shape and overlay it the best I can? Similar to doing a decal on the body? If you have done this on your truck, any help in tracking down and actual part would be my preference. Thanks, Brandon
  6. They were separate. The 96 truck and my current 1997 GMT400 both have two catalytic converters on two down pipes from the engine so it can be true dual setup if you wish.
  7. My previous 96 K1500 had (2) single in single out flowmaster 40s on it and they sounded great.
  8. Just what I needed to see! Thanks I haven't seen many GMT400's in that color
  9. Guys, I recently acquired a set of 2016 Silverado 18" wheels from a friend...and would like to have these on my 1997 K1500. The stock size for the wheels is 265/65R18 which I know will fit under my truck...but I am wondering what the maximum tires size would be for an 18" wheel on the GMT400s just in case I decided to get larger A/T tires.
  10. I have a bad actuator on my 1997 K1500 HVAC. it's the one directly behind the Blower motor assembly on the passenger side. I removed the faulty part and inspected the gearing and found that the main gear is nearly broken in half. Just wondering if the following part is correct: Air Vacuum Actuator Thanks, Brandon
  11. I've checked the truck several times, no foreign objects found...
  12. As the title states, I am picking up an odd smell coming from underneath my truck after I drive it a reasonable distance.... Smells similar to hot glue or something of that nature....could it be a bad bearing somewhere or joint? Any idea what it could be? I don't see any fluid leaks anywhere... Thanks, Brandon
  13. Yeah it gave me a good scare the other day with on-coming traffic....
  14. Can you assist one where this is located? I've just started looking for videos on where to troubleshoot this...
  15. My '97 K1500 has suddenly started to have an odd steering issue that I've never experienced before. I explained the issue to my mechanic that has been working on the truck for various things recently and he believes it is the EVO in the power steering. Basically what is happening while driving....I will be going straight down the road and suddenly the steering wheel will move to the left or right without warning. Of course this is not being caused by rough roads, etc....this is occurring on freshly paved highways and no incline.... Just wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem before? -Brandon
