  1. I didn’t take any pics. Just jack up the truck via the frame to relax the pressure in the springs. I bought a bicycle inner tube and cut it into 3-4” sections and then put them in between the 1-2 and 2-3 leafs right where they make contact. This was right at the end for the 1-2 pack and about 12-18” in on the 2-3 pack. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. I’ll vouch for the inner tube fix. I did it last weekend and it took me about 20 mins tops. It completely eliminated the clunking/groaning. I’ve still got some squeaks from the shackles, but the clunking was the most frustrating thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Do you have any pictures of these installed? Tough to get a feel of what they look like in real life based on those pics... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Does anyone have experience here with Sulastic shackles? I’m currently around 3/5 drop with McG’s spindles and lowering struts in front with the flip kit and lift hangers in the back. I’m wondering if I can use the Sulastics for a better ride in back but I’m not sure if they’ll work with the shackle flip and lift hangers. Any experience would be great.

    I think you’ll find the settings on the main menu of your radio. Can’t remember for sure what all the options are, but that’s where you can set up the safety seat option. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is it the dry filter or oiled? And what’s your location? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah, I don’t have the max towing package so that could account for the PSI difference when loaded. I really wish I would’ve seen those trick air valves/license plate mounts before I installed mine. I drilled a hole through the plastic part of the bumper next to my plate, but that’s much cleaner solution. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Not an overlay. I took the old chrome grill inserts out and then had to drill a few holes to attach the new mesh style grille. It kind of reminds me of the CTS-V style grilles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I would echo most of your thoughts. I usually run 15-20 unloaded and 50-60 when pulling my travel trailer. I also don’t have an onboard compressor but instead use a Viair compressor and a 7-pin to 12-volt plug to air them up. Kind of a pain, but not too big of a deal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Installed my new Grillcraft grille, getting rid of some of the chrome. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It’s fine. I liked the fact that I didn’t have to make any modifications that couldn’t be reversed, so the bolt on aspect appealed to me. But the instructions were lacking and having lived with it for awhile, I don’t care for the design. There is a bar that goes between the axle and the leaf springs where the bag mounts. It causes some squeaking as the suspension cycles (and the bar runs the leaf spring pack). Also, since I wasn’t a full 6” drop, I also had to purchase a 2” spacer to work (since I’ve got the flip kit with the lift shackles for a ~ 5” drop). The kit works, as I pull a 6000# travel trailer with my lowered truck. But I think the Air Lift design would be a little better. Not enough to take it off and switch, but if I had it to do over again... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’m using this kit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Not sure if someone’s answered you yet, but you can use the McG helper bag kit, you’ll just need to get a 2” airbag spacer from Firestone. That’s what I did. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
