  1. I didn't know those were a thing. Is it a straight swap? What's different about them vs the truck pads and rotors? Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  2. I did the rotors and pads. Left the calipers alone. The only downside is that they're dusty. I'm sorry I should have mentioned that earlier --just didn't think of it. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  3. I just did all 4 corners with the power stop z36 kit and have been very happy. We also flushed the fluid and the brakes feel better than the day I bought the truck. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  4. It was the condenser. They fixed it in 1 day. Was a $1400 job, but my extended warranty covered it. I just paid the $200 deductible. I would have probably done it myself if not for the warranty. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  5. Well, half the lifters because they'd only do the one side. But at least I got that goin for me! Sounds like he had a rough time with that tundra. He should have got a chevy. (sorry, it's a reflex) So, from what I can find, yes. There's a TSB and extended coverage on the SUVs of the era for the condenser. I'm told it's the same part in the trucks but the TSB doesn't cover them, so I'll let you draw your own conclusions there. There's also supposed to be another TSB/issue where one of the lines vibrates too much and eventually cracks. They released a support bracket to help mitigate that one. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2014/MC-10135312-9999.pdf <--Compressor to condenser line https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2018/MC-10145171-9999.pdf <-- Condenser leak (SUVs)
  6. I'm not mad... Can't be. I haven't paid for any of it. I get stuff breaks, but it's sad that the imports are so much better still. The big three have come a long way in the last 10-15 years, though. But my wife's crv is almost 11 years old with like 140k miles. It drives like new and the only thing to fail on it has been a wheel hub. I've been spoiled by imports I guess. AFM was the worst (I was told about $4k) but iirc the y-pipe would have been a $1400 job if not for the federally mandated warranty on emissions maybe it was a $1400 part.. can't remember. Either way, that's not chump change. The truck also consumes more oil than my 88 dodge colt with bad rings. That is sad considering how much they struggle to meet emissions with these v8s. As for the ac, my parents always drove GMs when I was young. The only things we ever had problems with was ac. My neighbor had a 15 silverado as well and his AC died about 20k miles in. AC isn't a new feature. It just seems like they might have figured out how to make it reliable by now. Don't get me wrong, l love my truck. But sometimes I wish Toyota built it instead of chevy.

  7. She's going in this morning for an inspection and repair of the AC. I noticed bit wasn't cooling the other day but figured it was me. Well yesterday was warm enough there was no doubt. Not sure if it's the line or condenser or what else. I figured I'd make this to document the process. Side note: this makes my 4th fairly major issue but I've been very fortunate with warranties this far... 1. AFM assploded going up an on ramp one Friday after work - 68k miles - covered under powetrain warranty but took 6 weeks to do because of parts on backorder. Truck never has been quite the same. 2. Door lock actuator failed - covered by extended warranty. Had to live with it for a few weeks because of parts on backorder. Not major, but shouldn't happen in so young a truck. 3. Catalytic converter rattling/failed - around 72k miles iirc - new y-pipe under emissions warranty. No delays. 4. AC failed - 92k miles - should be covered under the extended warranty.

  8. Wild.. I have a 15 with an RAS and 5100s and noticed a similar vibration at 70 about 5k miles ago. I'm currently at 90k though. I thought it was a bad wheel balance, but rebalancing at the next oil change didn't fix it. Now you have me wondering. I also have a leveling kit installed. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  9. The only thing I can think of is they got dirty, but why it only affected one side, I can't say. Also, I'm not sure how this couldn't be covered under the powetrain warranty, if the truck still has one. I'd say it's time for a second opinion. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  10. Ignoring the title, which I hope is a typo... You don't have it in 4wd do you? That could cause that.
  11. The fittings in the last picture look like they're crimped and not removable/disconnectable. It was probably done to splice in that braided line allowing for a little fudge factor in the installation process. You could probably cut the feed and splice in some fittings, but you're beyond my experience there.
  12. I think there's a hardware requirement on the radio-side to support that. I saw an article yesterday saying some guys are putting together something to work as an adapter for "most radios". https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/09/08/this-dongle-could-bring-android-auto-wireless-to-almost-any-car/
  13. I'd reach out to monster transmission. They're an expert in many units and may have the answer you seek. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  14. They told my neighbor it'd be about 4k for his 8-spd. You sure your power train warranty is only 60k? It's not the same as the bumper to bumper... Mine is good to 100k and I'm at about 86. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
  15. Well, hopefully if it does come to that your power train warranty will cover it. Mine paid for a 4k AFM Lifter job about 10k miles ago. My transmission worries me a bit, too. I've noticed that if I get on it from a stop I sometimes get at least a full second of slip on the 1-2 shift. I'm worried it's gonna give up the ghost one day while towing my camper. Good luck. I hope the warranty covers you if the tranny is bad. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk
