  1. Stuck down? Probably need a new switch. If it’s on the shift lever. You will probably need to change whole lever Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I would probably not do a flush, but I would drain it all out and add new fluid. When I did mine before I had the trans rebuilt. I disconnected 1 side of the cooler (passenger side) and put a pipe over it. Started the truck and pumped the old out and added new in. Probably not the best to do. But it worked for me.

  3. Change the trans fluid and filter. The transfer case takes the same fluid as the trans. Dextron 6. The 6L90 is a great transmission. I got 100k out of mine before it needed to be rebuilt. The torque converter went bad and sent metal throughout the transmission. Change the diff fluids with the correct weight gear oil and regular oil changes. I used 5-30 Mobil 1 full synthetic. I go off of the trucks oil life in the cluster. I drive mine maybe 5k a year and almost every time it’s hauling a load. The 6.0 is a great motor. Makes great power. My truck has a K&N Intake (was on it when I bought it) plus side is the cleanable filter. A tuner would help out a little with power and fuel economy. If it is an extended cab 2500HD (not sure if they had it in 2008 but they did in 2011) the center link for the steering will have a rubber bushing in the pitman arm. You can get a non isolated center link and pitman arm off a 3500hd and it will bolt right in. Mine had it and the bushing was shot causing a lot of play. The non isolated model has more feel in the steering wheel. But no bushing to go bad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I would assume the blower resister is probably bad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I wouldn’t replace the Torsion bars as you can just crank them to lift the front of the truck. If the leaf springs and height difference are bothering you that much you can change the rear leaf. Or possibly add weight in the rear to the passenger side. Maybe it will bring it down level Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. https://www.jegs.com/i/Danny+Bee/294/LB-01/10002/-1?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIsuWsp7iV5QIVRL7ACh3rnAOuEAQYASABEgLGkfD_BwE You can get a set of these and only use one and see how it does. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The issue is that weight over the time span of when the truck is new. That extra weight over time has caused sag in the driver side spring. There’s many variables that can cause the lean. As also stated any time the truck is driven, you or someone is always in the driver seat. Thus adding more weight to the driver side. Over time causes sag and fatigue on the springs.

  8. Yep that will do it too. Plus there’s always a driver in the driver seat. So that added weight as well could sag the springs slightly Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Leaf springs are about the only way to level them out. Unless you have some type of shim made to go between the leaf and the axle. I don’t believe anyone makes them that small so you would have to probably have some made Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. What gear ratio does the axle have? I have a 2007 tahoe with 5.3 and it has the 3.42 or 3.27. I can’t remember. But it hesitates off the line and lower speeds. It doesn’t get into power till the upper rpm range. Does it have factory or over sized tires? Larger tires will effect it as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. If it’s on all the time that narrows it to the truck. You’ve replaced the trailer brake relay that’s under the spare tire already? There may be a bad wire in the harness or something else. Mine had the same issue. Replacing the relay fixed it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Does it come on with a trailer hooked up? If it only comes on when you plug the trailer in, there may be an issue with the trailer wiring. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I wouldn’t replace it. It doesn’t look bad. Looks all surface to me. If you’d like, get a wire wheel and drill and go over the entire wheel. Clean it really good and hit it with some primer and paint to help protect it from rust. There doesn’t appear to be any large flaky rust or anything like that. My spare tire for my truck is in worse shape than that (but I don’t use it because my truck has 37 inch tall tires). If it was me, I would do as said and repaint it.

  14. Need to read the codes in the ecu to see what is causing it. Need an OBD2 reader. If you don’t have one. A local part store should be able to read them with one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. If the ac works but when you turn to heat, it never gets hot. Then your blend door actuator is probably bad Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
