  1. As said above, definitely stick with a matched set unless you or someone has proven something else works. I used to race rally cars in the UK & once had a really bad time when I had different shocks front & rear (both competition spec but different brands). Front & rear end reacting at different speeds etc could give a very choppy ride even on a regular bumpy road. The 4600s sound like your best bet anyway so you should be happy.

  2. For the original diagnosis, a popping noise would seem more like a top mount or ball joint than the actual shock. Might just need a little investigation & loosening/tightening some nuts & bolts. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  3. Mine is more noticeable when it changes down under very light acceleration, also has the symptoms you describe if I change down manually while coasting. Best description I've seen is earlier in this thread, clutches / torque converter not disengaging/slipping. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk

  5. I'm in your 5%, and I would certainly have incurred a repair bill costing way more than my new winter tyres on used rims by now. I live in the Okanagan region of Canada, no it doesn't snow all year, it has been above or around freezing much of December but that can be worse than a snow covered road due to ice. Any traction related accidents can be alleviated if you drive slowly enough, I'm not driving that slowly any time of year. I've responded to quite a few accidents in our area as a volunteer firefighter, 95% of the time people's luck is incredible (e.g. car gets wedged on a tree rather than continuing a few hundred feet down to the lake). The tyre manufacturers here advertise that changing to winters below 7 deg C is best, sure it is & a dedicated set of semi slick racing rubber for a dry summer day would grip better than all terrains, that's not practical either. As others have said it just depends on your climate & roads. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  6. This is the part I don't get... "The clutch plate engagement is calibrated by GM for a reason. If you tune it, you may be trading the longevity of your clutch plates for a smoother downshift." Shifting gears like a ham fisted gorilla with a manual transmission results in the same driveline clunk as this auto, surely that can't be good for longevity. I never had an auto before leaving the UK for Canada, the auto in the 300,000 kms Jeep Cherokee I bought when we moved over was much nicer than this truck. The 2008 Dodge Ram I traded for this truck was great after adjusting the shift points with a Superchips. Just seems like laziness on behalf of GM. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  7. Good question, I don't know if tuners adjust the torque converter action or just shift points & pressure. For me driving in tow / haul or M5 makes no difference to the banging issues. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  8. Crap programming, mine has been like this from new, feels like the torque converter doesn't unlock during down shifts at light throttle. Big clunk through the drive train. Still trying to find a solution before warranty runs out in June. Dealer says 'normal'. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  9. That's exactly the symptoms I have with mine, torque converter feels like it isn't unlocking at light throttle shifts. Any way to convince the dealer this is not 'normal operation'? Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  10. My 17" steel wheels have a special lug nut which has a threaded portion on them, the plastic fake lug nuts on the centre caps screw onto those. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  11. Post Pics of Your 2014+

    Winter arrived in earnest yesterday in Okanagan, BC. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  12. Yes, won't go away until OK'd, bloody stupid. I guess it's still the same in newer models than my 2014 then. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  13. Not sure if there has been an update that would stop the stupidity of the damn message that comes up saying "Warning : taking your eyes of the road is dangerous" or something along those lines, this is just mental. First time I saw it after owning the truck for a few days I had to read the message while driving as I thought something was wrong. Surely this message should disappear when you put the truck in gear. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  14. BFG k02 tires

    My 2014 Work Truck spec 5.3 1500 came with LTs from new. Door sticker says 38 psi. I have replaced the 17" steel rims with 18" alloys now & have P rated tyres, P rated were a good bit lighter weight than the LTs & I did do some research before buying P rated AT tyres & the 17" winters to ensure the weight ratings were sufficient (Costco still wouldn't install them as the ViN said it came with LTs). Most LTs don't come with a mileage warranty & cost a good bit more. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
  15. Grade brake?

    Would have been nice if the sales guy mentioned it & how to have it turned off following the 'make sure you don't drive hard or use high rpm for the first..... kms' First time I went down a long hill applied light brakes for a couple of seconds it changed down two gears, hit 4k & I had visions of a warranty refusal if anything ever went wrong with the engine. Before that same long hill I now usually change to manual which disables the grade brake & if I do feel I need to change down it is a quick tap on the stalk. It is worthwhile for not cooking brakes for folks who only ever select Drive. Sent from my Moto Z2 Play using Tapatalk
