  1. Varying Ride Height

    Plow prep on one? The diesel also has different torsion bars than the gas truck I think. Dealer might have cranked the bars some. They do around here apparently if they know you're putting a plow on.
  2. Agree that the steering damper may not help much for my issue. I've had it aligned 3 or 4 times. The last time by a local shop that I know the owner quite well. He said it was set up exactly how he would set it for a leveled truck already, not much else they can do. So I guess the next step would be to ditch the leveling kit. I went back to the OEM wheels and that helps quite a bit. Probably if I put stock tires back on instead of 275/65R20 that would help also.
  3. Getting quite a bit of pulsating and steering wheel shimmy at certain speeds at this point, 30,000 miles. That doesn't seem very good. I plow with the truck and I've been told plowing is hard on brakes. What is everyone else getting for life out of these brakes?
  4. What is it actually doing to help slow down the truck? Just a different shift program that holds the gear or downshifts more to try to take advantage of engine braking?
  5. 2019 V8 Horsepower ratings.

    Seems like a major screw up to be planning a truck that hasn't come out yet that is already beaten by a 2015 F-150.
  6. You must be delusional. In Maine the wax is garbage, there is no excuse for how quickly GM truck frames rust thanks to this coating. My 2016 has seen two winters of plowing and it's rusting at all the edges and the frame looks brown everywhere else because the wax takes on the dirt/dust from driving on dirt roads somehow. My theory is its deliberate so that trucks need to be replaced every 10 years at most, otherwise this is 2018 and there has to be a better way to keep trucks from rusting this quickly.
  7. I should have known there was YouTube video for that...thank you.
  8. How do you "pop out both mirrors" to get started?
  9. Unless you have Max Trailer package, I would say you're over your GCWR and max trailer weight for that truck.
  10. 7640 was the total of just the two truck axles or that includes the trailer weight?
  11. Hmm. Not sure. Someone told me that some electronics are in the way if you have the digital.
  12. Can I put one on my 2016 truck with the digital steering assist? My understanding is the bracket is no longer there. But is there an aftermarket one that will work still?
  13. Perhaps calling it a shimmy is a better term. I can feel it fighting to turn the wheel back and forth even when I hold it tight to stop the wobble. It's not a full on death wobble, though, as I have read you have to slow down to get that under control on the Super Duty trucks. Thanks all for the input.
  14. Poor geometry I would agree with. Just curious if all the guys in here that are leveled also can't hold on to their wheel and think it's ok. Because there would be nothing different that way between mine and all the others. Worn out, I'm skeptical. Truck has 28,000 miles on it. The tires look ok but hard to say, maybe these tires amplify it and the snow tires I was running it do not for whatever reason.
