  1. Did you replace with another GM original or find a better looking aftermarket version? The GM parts sites list a new part number, don't know if this is an improvement over original. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  2. Rusting Frame

    They use some liquid with molasses & some other stuff round here (Vernon, British Columbia) when it isn't too cold. That stays on the road when put down before snowfall rather than flying off like the salt. No idea what molasses do for rust though.[emoji848] Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  3. I see it has it's own drive belt so that's good. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  4. I agree that the electric replacement is the best idea but if only a relatively small percentage of the vac pumps are likely to die that's quite an investment in time & cost for something that might be fine for a long time to come. Just looking to install an insurance policy. Appreciate the input, thanks. Im guessing those that have done an electric vac pump had to measure up for a shorter drive belt after pulling the old one.

  5. With the numerous reports of vac pumps failing & spitting oil & metal into the brake booster & engine, anyone got a suggestion for installing a filter that could be added for protection to the line from pump to brake servo? Also, is the oil getting contaminated & going straight into the engine or is there a means of protecting that too? Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  6. Sounds like plans will be on hold for a while..... then you will be in charge of your own time, good luck. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  7. Bilstein shocks thread

    Hi, I had read almost everything there was on here, recently installed 5100s all round on a 2014 with Z85 suspension code (towing package I think). My biggest complaint against the OEM from new was the rebound after a sizeable bump or compression. After a fairly sharp speed bump at quite low speed it felt like the tyres would bounce of the speed bump, then slam into the road, sometimes enough to bounce back up again. The Bilsteins on the second from lowest setting have improved things a huge amount, speed bumps can be driven over just like every other vehicle I've owned. The only harsher characteristic I have is the smallest road imperfections (joints in road, tiny holes) are slightly more noticeable. I only wish I'd swapped years ago. You can get better, even more compliant systems for a chunk more cash or you can look at the Eibach which is a similar setup. If you definitely don't ever want to level then you can order the 4600 Bilsteins for less money & the same performance AFAIK. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk

    That contact looks like it would be for the suspension topping out when airborne not bottoming out on landing. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk

    And that photo is with no weight on it I think. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk

    As Yondu says, & it is the one off the OEM shock that gets re-used. As stated, the higher the setting the less compressed that bump stop will be but still seems like it would be affecting performance of shocks. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk

    Now that's a fix [emoji1786] Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  12. Bilstein shocks thread

    Wow, so it's more like a spring helper than a bump stop. It must have an effect on how well the shock an function. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  13. Bilstein shocks thread

    I'm on the second setting, need someone to chime on who is set on 3rd or 4th. I was able to feel the bump stop by poking my finger up under the dust boot. Oo, er Missus [emoji16] Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  14. Yes, pretty much just bolt on like the rears I believe. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  15. Vacuum pump & mechanics

    For anyone who has a vac pump that hasn't gone bad, yet... Is there any possibility of putting a screen / filter in line so that if it does die the rest of the booster system & engine won't ingest oil & metal? Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
