  1. I just saw this, thanks for the response, it's definitely helpful. I cleared the code and ran some premium fuel through it, thinking maybe I got some bad fuel. The code hasn't showed up since. But I will definitely refer back to your response if the issue happens again... Thanks! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Could also be injector too though? Haven't had time to trouble shoot, feel free to post ideas or experiences with injector or o2 sensor problems. Thanks Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Hi, wondering if anyone can help shed some light on my 5.3 issues. The truck has been great so far, had since new. It's only got 40,000km on it. I towed a trailer for about an hr the other day, the next morning I went to remote start it and it wouldn't, I start it manually and find out the check engine light is on. I plug scanner in and find these codes P0131: O2 Sensor Circuit Low Voltage Bank 1 Sensor 1 • P0171: System Too Lean Bank 1 • P2096: Post Catalyst Fuel Trim System Too Lean Bank 1. I did a visual inspection of driver side o2 sensors and everything looked normal, also checked maf sensor. I haven't really done any trouble shooting just visual inspections. My truck has a custom tune, banks intake, bolt on cat back exhaust, 6"lift, basic stuff. It's been run like this since new almost, and just recently decided to throw this code so I don't think the mods are related to the problem. Just wondering if anyone has had the same combination of codes thrown and what they're fix was...truck is going into the dealer on friday, but someone elses first hand experience would be a lot of help but any info is appreciated.

  4. A question for those who have installed this kit. When installing the 6 inch lift kit, and using the lift block options to lift the rear of the truck. You are to install the lift block with the lift block pin (which is offset on the lift block) facing toward the front of the truck, which helps shift the axle forward. My question is, what will happen if the block is installed with the pin facing the rear? What is the purpose of shifting the axle forward a half inch. Can anyone help answer?

  5. Denali interior was from a wrecked truck, 1500 cdn but colour was wrong so I'm going to go the route that you guys have suggested and look into katskins... Does anyone know if these seat covers are worth attempting yourself or are they a pain and better off paying someone else who has more experience to do? Thanks for taking the time to explain Phil, it's very much appreciated! Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  6. Hi, I'm looking for some advice from some of the guys here with a lot more experience with this than myself. I've never modded or bothered to work on the interior of any of my trucks before. I have a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 sle z71 with sloth seats and the bench in the centre. I have a chance to get the front and rear seats and centre console out of a 2016 denali 1500. The general question I have is, is this an easy swap (in terms of unbolting and bolting everything in) ? Are there any specialty tools I would need? Or any modifications to make the centre console work? My second question is how difficult will it be to get everything I currently have right now to work ( power and heated seats? Are the harnesses plug and play as far as just getting what I have now to continue to work)? I don't mind not having the features that the seats had when they were in the Denali, just want what I have now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. I hear ya, I got a little defensive, but wanted to make sure people knew that just bc they installed a lift doesn't mean their truck should ride like crap after. I know what your saying about some expecting the same ride though, definitely agree with you. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  8. A good tell-tale sign of the brake light on the cab leaking is you can see condensation in the lens of the light Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  9. I found the leaks, after the first one I check more often, especially with the weather tech mats, you would never know you had a leak unless you pull then often and check. There was so much water under the carpet that you could hear it slosh when you pushed the carpet up and down. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  10. Just read your other post, I had weather tech mats so I knew no water was getting under them from myself. But your s could very well be from dragging in snow etc. Hopefully that's the case Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  11. You have a leak somewhere. I had three leaks one of them major. One of the leaks was coming from the fire wall area, another from OnStar antenna, and the last one that got fixed was from the third brake light on the rear of the cab. Spots that I noticed were wet were d/s front under the mat, and with the cab light leak it was d/s rear under the mat. I suppose it could be else where depending on where your parked (road/drive way grade) All were fixed under warranty. I tried calling gm and mentioning I was worried about electrical problems and mold in hopes they would offer me something with no luck. Didn't really care though the dealership took care of it and did a good job. It's piss that it happened but other than those leaks the truck hasn't given me any problems and it's a 2015 so I'm happy with it. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  12. O ya, truck looks awesome by the way Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  13. You are right, i was wrong in saying that my truck rides as smooth as stock. It won't ride the same as stock with lift and larger tires, but I can tell you it's a pretty damn close ride to stock when I put my winter wheels on. Smooth, no vibration, even with my add a leaf it Doesn't bounce all over the road like a 3500 with no weight on it. I just put my Summers on, 35 x 12.5 Cooper stt pros, and yes you can feel the lug and notice the added load on the motor and brakes but that has nothing to do with the lift itself, those are wheel issues, the truck still rides smooth as far as the suspension goes. The original poster has a bds lift, which replaces the front struts but reuses factory springs. So spring rate is the same, not stiffer. I'm not trying to justify my purchase, buying a lift is a huge waste of money lol and not practical, I've had to extend my sled ramp, and getting anything into and out of the bed is a pain in the ass, but it looks awesome. I know from my experience if the bds lift is installed correctly, and we are talking about the suspension lift itself, it should ride pretty damn close to stock. I think what throws some guys off is that these trucks come with car tires on them. They are a p rated tired, p stands for passenger. They are very smooth riding. Then we get lifted and throw on 33 inch 10 ply LT's and pump 40+ psi in them and then think our bds lift rides harsh. It's mostly the tires, especially if some tech shit the bed and forgot to balance the wheels. I think you need to take the truck to get looked at again. You are 100 percent correct in saying it should not be vibrating or shaking. They neglected to balanced the tires in the first place I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't balanced then correctly there second go around. If it were me I would throw my stock wheels on, and take'r out for a rip, if the vibration is gone you know it's the wheels. If it is still there you know it is something that they did bc the truck wasn't shaking before the lift was installed, and nor should it shake after a lift is installed.
