  1. You're a man that talks in engineer and numbers, Thank you very much for the info, its priceless. Please have some Likes on your posts, good man What is your suspension set up? If you like to drive fast, shock/coilover upgrades are a must. Also a Dirtking alignment kit if you run into alignment issues like a lot of us have had
  2. LOL I have read that Aluminum driveshafts fail, but mine is steel. Thanks for the safety concern, im sure that will come to me with age
  3. I have read about it but my driveshaft hasn't shown any signs of vibration at all. Do you know if the driveshafts that blow are 1 piece or 2 piece and if made of Steel or Aluminum ?
  4. I do it so others dont have to. These new Gen V SB engines are awesome, they dont need much to deliver excellent power and efficiency Traveling at 80 MPH when traffic allows it is more than enough to make good times, and going faster will also ruin your fuel economy
  5. Security is a big concern down here in Mexico, I needed to test how the truck behaves at higher speed if I ever need to get out of a situation. Filming it seemed like a good idea since its a rare ocurrence Thats as fast as a big square box will go, regardless of the power
  6. Hello Everyone A couple of days ago, I was cannonballing home from a trip and I was wondering what the top speed of my 2015 5.3 Silverado was. I have done a coupe fo things to the suspension to make drive better so I can drive fast on open roads, so I wanted to share. I do not encourage Reckless driving, always drive within your skill level. Its fun to do some spirited driving, but be aware of the traffic and road conditions. Always hoon responsibly. 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2WD 5.3 L83, 6 speed 6L80 and 3.08 Gears on P265/70/17 Kuhmo (113T Passenger SUV Tires for 120Mph) Truck Mods: Engine -Speed Engineering Long Tube Headers -AirAid Intake Tube -DiabLew "Custom" Tune loaded via intune 2 -BlowBy Crankcase Evacuation System to exhaust Suspension -Front 2.0 Fox Coilovers set to stock ride height -Rear Bilstein 5100 shocks -Front 3" Lift Spindles -DirtKing Front Alignment Cam kit -Removed 3rd Cargo Spring -1" Rear Lift Block -2" Wheel Spacers on the rear (to compensate for the extra width Front Spindles provide) Extras -GoRhino Bumper -9" Round Ching Chang Chong eBay Led Lights (High Beams) -10" Rigid Industries Radiance Led Bar w/Amber Cover (Fog) -30" Rigid Indusries E-Series Led Bar w/Amber Covers (Fog) I ended up reaching 136MPH on a flat straight and 129 on a slightly uphill. Do not attempt, this video was Filmed with a Potato in Mexico, its computer Generated and never actually happened. Here is the video:
  7. I just got this puppy, so i can monitor Police/Emergency services near me to be aware of possible security problems. Its very fun for longer trips too.
  8. * Yet It shouldn't be too long for support to arrive for new 2019+ trucks. Im curious if the paint stick mod works for the newer ones
  9. I would Check if the Paint Stick Throttle Mod can be done to your Truck before you go spend $$ Also, if there is no tuner available where you live, there are also options. I bought a Diablo inTune i2 online and a custom tune from a guy named Lewis Eaton (Diablew) He makes the custom tunes and emails them to you, so you can download them to the intune and tune the truck´s ECU yourself
  10. Waste of Money IMO Save your dollars and g get a good Custom HP Tune
  11. Front Fox shock absorbers is a Coilover unit in itself. Out of the box it bolts to the truck using 5 nuts. Out of the box and installed it will raise your truck 2.5" The Fox part number is 985-02-018 and you can get them and installed on any shop like 4WheelParts or buy online (They are sold individually so dont forget to order 2) 4WheelParts: https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/fox-racing-shox-2-0-performance-series-coilover-ifp-shock-985-02-018/_/R-BKTK-985-02-018 Fox Page for more details: https://www.ridefox.com/product.php?m=truck&t=shocks&partnumber=985-02-018&make=Chevrolet&model=Silverado+1500+&year=2015&position=Front They are very easy to install, so i wouldnt expect any shop to charge more than they normally charge for changin a set of shocks
  12. If you want to raise the front by 2.5" you can do it with either Coilovers or Spacers (One option or the other) A 2.5" Spacer with stock shocks will make the truck ride kind of bad, it will be bouncing like a basketball up and down like crazy A Set of Fox Coilovers will ride nicer but still it will be less confortable. It all depends on your budget and how much you want to spend on it, Just remember that you get what you pay for. If money was not an issue, i would go for a quality 3-4" full Lift with Coilovers, because good lift kits correct the geometry of the suspension and Coilovers will ride nicer. If you need any more detailed info, please feel free to DM me, i have gotten quite a lot of hands-on experience with suspensions by working at Polaris Dealer (RZR Cilover suspensions) and by tampering with my Silverado
  13. Putting spacers on stock shocks makes it worse. Changing the ride geometry to a couple of inches higher, makes the suspension hit the droop stops. To remedy this, people get UCAs to correct the Ball Joint angle and chop the droop stops so the suspension can extend a bit further down, but to me thats just hacking
  14. From the box, they come raised for a truck lift of like 2.5" but you can adjust them to any height you want. Keep in mind that the ammount of lift you adjust on the coilover will directly make the ride of the truck crappier, if you want it to ride well, leave the front ride height as stock If you want the truck to drive even nicer, you can remove the rear overload springs, i did it and the rear is very comfortable now, but ifyou carry more than 500lbs in the bed the truck will rake. You can help this by putting 2-3" lift blocks after removing the overload spring. The trucks stock come with very soft front shocks, that makes the truck feel "stiff" because the suspension vibrates a lot and youre bouncing all over the road I also use my truck as a daily and im very happy with it. Fox Coilovers at stock ride height are the nicest it has been, and i have tried Bilsteins and leveling kits before, so if you buy the coilovers you will save yourself a lot of daily headaches
  15. In my experience nothing rides better than coilovers My current set up in the front is a pair of Fox 2.0s set to stock ride height (Because i have 3" lift spindles) Rides like a charm, i need to change my rear bilsteins for Foxes If you put strut spacers (leveling kits) the truck will bounce like crap If you put Bilsteins, they ride good on the highway but are unconfortable on roudy terrain.
