Goinovr started following Replacing 2.0 HMI module with 2.5 HMI module to add CarPlay/Android Auto to 2014-2015 Silverado, Lowered Sierra 4x4, CD Player Delete...Possible? and and 1 other
'16 with 8" non-Bose. Want to lose the cd player to have room for my lc7i and dont listen to CDs. Unhooked it and entire system dies. Is there some kind of delete cable I can get/make? Internet searches have come up with nothing so far. @pgamboa?
No. I had my shop put moogs into the lowers. The uppers are off size for any of the moog ball joints but had them put in higher quality upper ball joints. The kit is staying on for now until I decide if I go bags or not. My shop said the geometry of the arms is good but those crap ball joints are a liability.
I stuck up for IHC during that time but it was due to misinformation. The arms themselves are well built and my wheels are practically dead center but as @Nasty has stated, the ball joints are literal junk.
Just FYI for everyone... I can no longer say anything positive about the IHC 4/6 lowering kit. I have broken both lower ball joints due to the extremely cheap Chinese joints used in the kit. This was confirmed by my shop. I have since had both lowers replaced with Moog joints but am stuck using the Chinese upper ball joints because they are smaller than any GM upper ball joint available in Moog. Total cost to fix the joints and associated damage and misc... $1700. While the IHC crew had great customer service I can't in good conscience tell anyone to buy this kit until the various issues they have are adressed. Lack of QC - I had to slightly drill out one of my spindles to accommodate a missized upper ball joint. Lack of grease in ball joints - was told they were pre greased Cheap materials - extremely cheap ball joints which becomes a safety issue. Luckily mine both sheered while reversing into a parking spot.
Where can I get info on this? I have a '16 but don't have carplay or auto. I never received anything from the dealer either about this. edit* For those wondering... ACP/AA Technical Service Bulletin. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2016/MC-10078548-7690.pdf It's funny, I called the dealership where I bought the truck and they had no clue what I was talking about. Called another near my work and apparently they do the updates all the time. $150. My manufacture date is 02/16 so I am dead in the middle of the HMI shortage.
Do you happen to have the part number for the leather hump? edit* Nevermind. Found it. https://www.gmpartscenter.net/oem-parts/gm-cluster-visor-22822023/?c=Zz1ib2R5JnM9aW5zdHJ1bWVudC1wYW5lbC1jb21wb25lbnRzJmk9R0gxNDUwODUmcj0xJmE9Y2hldnJvbGV0Jm89c2lsdmVyYWRvLTE1MDAmeT0yMDE2JnQ9bHQmZT01LTNsLXY4LWdhcw%3D%3D
I can see these giving people some lift as it will re-arc their leaf springs if they had started sagging or they over tightened them . That's most likely the people who were saying they saw some kind of lift. If installed correctly on newer vehicles their should be no issue. Good job on the vid!
Yep. You can connect both but only 1 will work at a time. You go into the phone menu to swap between them like if you have to take/make a call. I also have a work phone and have to do this.
Currently looking for new tires. Truck is lowered and I don't haul anything heavier than the occasional sheet of mdf. Can I run a 106 load rating tire safely? It would open up a lot more options for tire size. Esit* May have found my answer. Seems quite a few SUV tires are 106 load so it SHOULD be ok.
