  1. I have roughly 56k miles on my truck...don't use 4wd very often, but occasionally... I have noticed i have a clicking sound when turning at slow speeds...I haven't been able to climb underneath my truck yet (not even sure I would be able to tell unless something was blatantly obvious). I did a search and found some threads about steering column causing a click...it isn't my steering wheel... if it is a CV issues, are these under the power train warranty or am I SOL? Any advise appreciated!
  2. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    my understanding is anything over 2...
  3. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    This is where I am...I am needing to replace my factory shocks...but I already have a RC 2" level kit...I think the 1.85" lift the Bilstein's give are noticeably lower than the 2" level...so I am considering (even though it is not recommended) to go stock height and keep the spacer...
  4. New Shocks...

    agree here...i would attribute expansion joint issues more to tires than shocks...I prefer 18" rims for a 4wd truck...but I am sure I am in the minority on that...
  5. New Shocks...

    everyone has their own tastes and preferences...but ultimately the two largest factors for people giving reviews are 1) expectations - some people have low and some people have high expectations...the performance of the part/vehicle is more about the persons expectation than actual performance. 2) buyer justification-if someone chooses to spend money, more times than not (and since I am typing this, I realize how many people might say they dont do this, so not everyone) they justify their purchase...this is usually about 'premium' products...benchmade knives for example, people who have them love them, people who don't say they probably aren't worth the money...so if you combine these two things...i think overall perception is weighted much much higher than an actual performance...but at the end of the day...Bilstien's are little less than $100 per corner...factory replacement are about the same for front and about $30 less on rears(each) so it isn't a massive premium... anyway...off the soapbox...
  6. New Shocks...

    the interesting thing of all this is i had 98k on my 2008 Chevy when I sold it...granted it was a 2wd and whatever stock shocks were on it...but they seemed to be just fine when I got rid of that truck...crazy how bad these Ranchos are compared just to the other stock shocks...planning on replacing with the o'l Bilstein's...I'm probably going to replace the rears next month (myself) and budget for the front as soon as I can...
  7. Welp...I guess I'm just like most folks on this site...my stock Ranchos need replaced...about 56k miles...good times...
  8. im not doing your shopping for you...go buy the truck, its your money...you clearly arent looking for advise, you are looking for validation...BUY IT.
  9. no, i was making a point...you are the one looking to pay brand new price for a damn 2015...i wish you the best bub. (and the wrecked truck is still a better deal than the one you posted)
  10. you are out of your mind if you are trying to say that a 4 1/2 year old v6 single cab worktruck is worth $30-$35k. just do an internet search...this is twice the truck for way less... https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=517200768&zip=73034&referrer=%2Fcars-for-sale%2Fsearchresults.xhtml%3Fzip%3D73034%26startYear%3D2015%26maxMileage%3D30000%26incremental%3Dall%26endYear%3D2020%26modelCodeList%3DCHEVCK%2CCHEV150%26makeCodeList%3DCHEV%26driveGroup%3DAWD4WD%26listingTypes%3DUSED%26minPrice%3D16000%26sortBy%3Drelevance%26maxPrice%3D20000%26firstRecord%3D0%26marketExtension%3Don%26searchRadius%3D0&listingTypes=USED&minPrice=16000&startYear=2015&numRecords=25&maxPrice=20000&firstRecord=0&endYear=2020&modelCodeList=CHEVCK%2CCHEV150&makeCodeList=CHEV&searchRadius=0&makeCode1=CHEV&modelCode1=CHEV150&clickType=listing
  11. turn and run...spend more time shopping online...that is a terrible deal...you can have cars shipped for $500 across the country...Regardless of the v6 or v8, you can find a much better truck than the link for $23k...
  12. do you even need a jack or just compress the shocks to install? that seems really easy...
  13. how long did it take to install? (you just did the rears, right?) I've never done it, but it seems much more simple than the fronts...
  14. I have not experienced any all terrain tire perform as well as michelin defenders in the rain...so you have to decide what you want, rain performance or looks...I always put michelin defenders on whatever my wife drives...she doesn't care what they look like...they are plain jane looking tires, but man they work damn well (on the pavement).
