  1. Yes, going to do that if no one knows the answer to the 2500 bar swap or just do key change question.
  2. Hello all, I have a 2004 Suburban K1500 (Non Z71 RPO, so weaker bars). Drivers side torsion bar is maxed out to keep truck close to level. So I went to the junk yard and got some Suburban Z71 bars, same thing, maxed out. Should have known it would be weak too because it was maxed out at the junkyard, but I tried them anyways. SO, my question is, should I get leveling keys to reindex the bars to hopefully lift more, but if the bar is already sagging, would it just sag more and possibly break when offroad?...or, do Suburban 2500 bars fit? I can't find anywhere for sure if they are the same length or not (and forgive me is there is a thread on here saying anything about it, a quick search didn't show it) I know Silverado bars don't fit becuase they are too long. Found that out the hard way, read somewhere they all are the same length so I got some from a junkyard and nope, they are too long! Any advice would be great. Trying to avoid spending 230+ bucks a piece for new ones (if dealer actually has them) or over a grand for the Sway Away brand. Thanks!
  3. Haha, yeah, I called BFG on the tires I got the first time, 255/75R17 C rated, and the said they were three ply sidewalls. I got them installed at Discount Tire, read the side of the tire, and they are two!! So I went back and exchanged them for the slightly bigger, no doubt heavier, E rated tires, 275/70R17. The reason I was set on three ply sidewalls is because I like to go off road and a lot of the terrain here is rocky. Plus, when I'm hauling a trailer or have the truck full of people, I like they extra stability and strength.
  4. You're welcome! Are you sure about the sidewalls being the same? I did a lot of research on the tires before buying them and pretty much all the c tires I found and saw were two ply sidewalls. I even went to a tire store to read the sidewall, haha. That's why I went with the e rated tires because they have three ply sidewalls. With the tires and wheels I have on it now, they are about 1.5 inches taller than stock. I haven't had my speedometer recalibrated yet, but around town I'm getting 13-14 as well, maybe 15 on the highway. But if you calculate the tire size difference, it may go up 1 or 2mpg.
  5. Mine are E rated,10 ply. And I run about 42-45 in them. Have only had them less than 5k, so I can't report on wear yet, but so far so good. I've redone the front suspension on mine, did that when we bought it 2 years ago. Also added sleeves to inner tie rod ends. I found a guy who makes brackets for a front strut conversion, gives you part numbers and instructions too. Going to be doing that in a couple years probably.
  6. I ended up getting the BFG KO2 Tires, 275/70R17. Great tire, quiet, seem to have a lot of grip (haven't taken them on anything more than washboard road with minor terrain). I can't wait to take them on a more challenging trail. I also have put on KYB Monomax monotube shocks, replacing Rancho 5000 series, night and day difference! I love the KYB shocks!
  7. Now to just figure out how to squeeze some more power out of her to make up for the heavier, and slightly bigger off road tires I have on it now. Haha.
  8. Thank you guys! It was a tough one. Have never seen that at my shop before. I replaced bank 2 harness as well, just for PM.
  9. Hey, thanks for the reply. I checked that, half of cranking compression. Used s pressure transducer to see valve opening and timing on scope, all good. Scoped the power to bank two coils, steady charging voltage. Scoped the pcm control signal to coil, good. Ended up replacing the coil wiring harness for bank two, no more misfires. Just had a bad connection in the harness somewhere that only acted up during certain load and vibration range. Weird but so glad it isn't a valve issue. I don't want to take motor apart yet! I do want to hop it up someday, just not ready to do it yet.
  10. I used AC Delco knock sensors, cam sensor, oil pressure sensor, and intake gaskets. Mostly dealer stuff. Used doorman knock sensor harness. Torqued to spec, 15ft. Lbs I believe.
  11. Hey everybody, got an issue that's driving me nuts....My question is this, I have a 2004 Suburban 1500, 5.3L LM7 engine, 180k miles (my personal truck). Last Saturday I replaced the knock sensors due to a code set by bad bank 2 knock sensor, still had the baffles under the intake and sure enough, rear knock sensor hole has water and was rusty. Replaced both sensors with oe sensors with the harness. While I was there I replaced the valley cover gasket, cam sensor and oil pressure sensor. All went as planned, drove fine afterwards. The next day I was driving it the highway, noticed a slight misfire at cruise only, with a very slight load. Just a little bump here and there. Hooked up my scanner (Autel), #6 has 2-6 misfires randomly under light load cruise, which is 1500-2000 rpm. Swapped coils with #4, no change. Did the same with the plugs and wires, no change. Swapped injector with #2, no change. Has 140-150 psi compression. WOT has a lot of power, smooth, sometimes pings above 4500rpm, and idle are fine. Fuel trims at idle are bouncing up and down right around zero, wot they are about +4. I'm at a loss of what to do next. In all the classes I've been to, whenever there is a mechanical problem, it's usually constant under load or at idle. I don't remember hearing about anything like this. Any advice would be very very much appreciated. Thank you all. Tyler

  13. They don't offer that size in the bfg ko2, at least I couldn't find it on the bfg site or Discount Tire. Thanks though.
