  1. Short and sweet. 06 Z71 Suburban 5.3, engine and drivetrain bone stock. 105k. Truck has been sitting for +/- 3 months. Battery was dead as a hammer. Charged it for almost 2-hrs on my full size Matco charger. Tried to start it and got this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NuaHQo86zJqaWnbYCCgFboW9in2T9hm9/view?usp=drivesdk Thoughts?

  2. Dang. I haven't touched my truck in weeks. But now may have to look in to this. It's the original alternator... From 2006, 14 years and 105,000 miles. Like you, I'll start with pulling the radio fuses first. I'll pull the battery and fully charge it overnight too. Sent from my HD1907 using Tapatalk
  3. I'd pull the alternator and have it tested. Sent from my HD1907 using Tapatalk
  4. Aftermarket here too. I've got all the adapters for steering wheel controls, factory Bose amp, and integrated satellite radio. I've got to make some time to pull the dash apart and go thru everything Sent from my HD1907 using Tapatalk
  5. Following. I'm chasing one on mine too. Have mine narrowed down to something in the radio wiring. These trucks are brutal with electrical gremlins. I've had bizarre ground issues... That's what I've ended up finding a couple times. Sent from my HD1907 using Tapatalk
  6. You could look at the Brian Tooley Racing Stage 1 truck cam. Should keep you close to stock but a little bump in power. I'd look in to upgrading the valve springs to the "beehives" and adding the trunion kit to the rockers if you are going to push any more RPM. I put the Stage 2 in my 5.3 -> 5.7 LS1 build and it's got a definite lope, but great bottom to mid range power. I pull a 6000# travel trailer and daily drive the truck.

  7. Bump? Have discovered that most of the OE body mounts are toast... Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  8. Did you completely remove the key at the rearward end of the bar? Let's start there some can troubleshoot the problem. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  9. Looking to eek a tiny bit more vertical wheel well clearance on my truck. Already running indexed keys (cranked all the way DOWN) a 2" rear spacer and GM HD progressive rate rear coils that added +/- 1" (they were an unusual find, I can post the P/N if anyone is interested). All new CA's F+R, BJ's, TRE's, Track Bar, etc... I generally hate BL's. Only one I ever ran was a 1" on a YJ Wrangler on top of 3 1/2" springs... Question is: Do they even make a SMALL BL for our generation Suburban? I've seen 3" (not gonna happen). Everyone and their brother makes a 1" - 1 1/2" for the pickups, but I doubt the body mounts are the same... Anyone? Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  10. Bump Same question. I have the engine hoist. And my 06 L59 iron block 5.3 is coming out very soon as part of a "Heartbeat" transplant. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  11. Anyone? And yes, I have searched. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  12. Well, this turned out to be a job where an adjustable wrench was the right tool. BC I wasn't about to go buy a 33mm box wrench. I cleaned up the threads a bit with a wire wheel on a drill. Ran the nut on with the adjustable to make sure it went on smoothly. Then put the lock washer on and worked the nut as tight as I could with a 2' pipe on the end of the wrench. Barely got a full thread out of the bottom of the nut. But it's tight. Hit it with a little red thread lock too. This front end rebuild has been a pain in the dick from the beginning.
