I currently have 17 Silverado z71 with a RC 2.5" leveling kit in the front with the spacer between the spring and perch. I would like the same lift height but a better ride quality so I'm looking to go with the bilstein 5100's. If I got a 1" front spacer which setting would the 5100's have to be on. Has anyone done this and how was the ride quality.
Update!! My vehicle has been at the dealer since 1-9-17 and still hasn't been fixed. I brought it in so they can fix the scratches on it from the factory and since then they said they have to repaint a piece cuz the scratch wouldn't come off. So they have been painting that for 2+ weeks. They haven't even had a chance to look into the trans at the moment cuz it's been at the body shop. This is ridiculous I am paying for a Silverado and driving a loaner equinox. Also contacted GM customer serivice off this site and of course thy don't respond or follow up on anything. Anyone have a Email or any contact info to someone hire up in GM that can get this process moving?What else can go wrong!!
I have a 2017 Silverado with the 5.3L 8spd trans and its clunking also. It's has pretty bad low speed downshift and upshift clunks sometimes. It's going back to the dealer pretty soon for the fast learn procedure, hopefully it makes this trans shift a lot smoother . At this point all this truck is a $60k piece of garbage.
I hope when they do the fast learn that it is a huge improvement. Its definitely one of two things either transmission downshift clunk or axle wrap causing it to bind on the slip yoke. My noise is more of clunk/thud. Sometimes so loud that it feels like something is loose and moving by the transfer case.
Alright guys so I talked to my dealership today and told them I want them to do a fast learn on the transmission. I'm Beginning to think it's a 2-1 downshift clunk cuz it happens mostly when I brake hard so the transmission has to downshift quicker to adjust for the correct speed. Will be bringing it back in a few days so they can do that and a few other minor things that they missed on the truck since i purchased it. Im hoping this helps . Any input on the fast learn procedure? Kind of messed up a brand new 56k truck has these issues.
