What do folks think would be a fair price to replace the Pitman and Idler arm assembly on a 2004 1500? Doing that, with an alignment afterwards, is being quoted at about $620 here in Northern CO. After watching various YouTube's of how to do it, I would like to but just don't have the time.
In the end, I replaced both my rear and fronts with Monroe 911152 for the rear (no boots, $112 for the pair from Advanced Auto) and Monroe 911501 (boots $102 for the pair from Advanced Auto) I did it myself and was so happy at how easy it was. Like stoopid easy & quick, about 1 1/4 hours to change all four. After 17 years and 130,00 miles of course the old factory ones were so bad. The truck drives a fair amount better, but still not grand as so many others things need to be replaced.
I see the 2005 Silverado used 9006 bulbs and not the H11. So the H11 to H9 conversion will not work for the original poster. The H11's are used in the 2007 and new trucks. I see there are 9006 to H9 conversions out there, but have no idea how easy or reliable it will be. Amazon has this wire adapter for 9006 to h9, but I assume the ring, tabs, and gasket will need to be modified as well. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Q75V3XU/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3MQS4FHJH5AAA&coliid=I1ABRCJ0U44ZMN List of bulbs and some kits for a 2005 Silverado: http://www.modifiedlife.com/2005-chevrolet-silverado-light-bulb-size-diagram/
