  2. I believe it was $550 after unlock and tuning. Sent from my Pixel 4a (5G) using Tapatalk
  3. I don't have Trifecta but I'm pretty sure they use the same program that was used on my 8 speed. I narrowed it down to trifecta or a local tuner. I went local because of having it tuned on the dyno for better results. I was using manual mode shifting a lot prior to the tune, now I rarely use it. Sent from my Pixel 4a (5G) using Tapatalk
  4. I got them from General Spring, www.generalspringkc.com I went with model 22-1269 which are 2025lb rated. They told me the stock rating is 1900lbs which is the option below the 2025lb. Check the spring pads on your existing springs, mine were rubbing all the time on the highway. You can see how flat mine were just sitting in the driveway. Sent from my Pixel 4a (5G) using Tapatalk
  5. SOLD Used roadmaster active suspension for Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra. Light surface rust on the bolt but 100% functional. 1990 – 2020 Chevrolet 1500 Silverado Pickup Kit Number: 4611 $250 I'd prefer local pick-up near Lancaster, PA. I can ship if you cover it.

  6. It appears I have resolved my suspension (Chevy shake) issue. The factory springs were too weak (even with an empty truck) and would ride the overload spring. This created the rough ride and also the vibration when going over bumps at higher speeds. I replaced the leaf springs and it's gone. I opted for an upgraded aftermarket spring so it hopefully won't come back. Sent from my Pixel 4a (5G) using Tapatalk
  7. Keep in mind that the trailer will be 1000lbs heavier than the dry weight. My 32' is 6700 dry but 8000lbs on the scale. If you are set on the truck I'd probably try to compromise here. I'm assuming you have a Z71 which are going to have softer springs and not enough payload for that trailer. I have 1916lbs payload with max tow and run a little over 1800lbs when truck is loaded and trailer hooked up. Tire and suspension upgrades (upgraded springs or airbags) for stability. Assuming that you have the 6 speed, the 3.73 gears are what's found in the max tow. I've seen Z71s pulling larger trailers so it can be done. I don't know how well it does or how long the truck can do it. Sent from my Pixel 4a (5G) using Tapatalk
  8. Anyone know the torque for the leaf spring bolts? I've seen numbers from 37 to 80 to 120ft-lbs. There should be 3 torque numbers Front eye - Shackle to hanger - Eye to shackle - Sent from my Pixel 4a (5G) using Tapatalk
  9. A few months ago I was running ras and bilstein 5100s and a vibration developed over 70mph. The vibration only occurs on certain sections of roads, blacktop highways and concrete. Other roads are smooth. I removed the ras and bilstein and the suspension was still stiff. I loosened the leaf spring bolts and it no longer vibrates, it's more of a bouncy oscillation over the same sections of road. The suspension is back to stock and I swapped wheels and tires which softened it but didn't resolve it. I'm aware of the chevy shake issues and don't think this drive train related but who knows. Any ideas of what would cause the suspension to randomly firm up at 50k? Anyone know the leaf spring shackle and eye torque specs? Sent from my Pixel 4a (5G) using Tapatalk

  11. My bad, read that wrong Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  12. If you find a tire you like look at the specs, it will give you a wheel width range. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
