2017 Silverado 1500 with 71K miles, the rear brakes are squealing like a stuck pig. I pulled them apart and didn't see anything immediately apparent. There was still plenty of pad, with no debris or contamination noted. The rotors were smooth and clean, with no gouges or defects aside from half moon shaped gouge(?) I found in one of the rotors. The e-brake was clean. I put everything back together and no difference. Any ideas? IMG_1131 by Brett Valentine, on Flickr
Calling an Android an upgrade is debatable. I’ve been an Apple user for 15 years, an iPhone user for 11 years, and an enterprise Apple user for 5 years. If I’m going to shit can something worth $1100 it’s going to be the OEM radio. The CarPlay not working is THE ONLY short coming with the phone. And again, I’ve done extensive troubleshooting with the truck and phone, the issue is with more than just CarPlay. The Bluetooth and iPod functionality connects at random too.
The factory Bose navigation head unit with the factory sub on my '17 Silverado 1500 LTZ is a POS. It connects to my phone pretty much when it wants to. Sometimes when I plug my phone in CarPlay connects automatically, sometimes I have to hit the projection button repeatedly, sometimes i get the Unsupported USB message. Sometimes blue tooth connects automatically, sometimes I have to connect it manually. Sometimes if my phone is connected to blue tooth and playing music when I plug my phone in the music starts playing out of my phone. Sometimes CarPlay connects as soon as I plug it in, sometimes I have to screw with it for 10 or 15 minutes to get it connect. It's all totally random. My phone is an iPhone 11Pro. It did it with my iPhone X too. Just in the way of troubleshooting, I spoke with Apple at length trying to troubleshoot this. I have the most current version of iOS, I backed my phone up to iTunes and restored the phone through iTunes. I reset the factory stereo to factory defaults, deleted any trace of the phone from the factory stereo, tried reconnecting, all with the same result. I talked to the service department at the dealer and they basically said that they will troubleshoot it, but as I'm out of warranty, the parts could be anywhere between $150 and $1000 not including labor. What are my aftermarket options, specifically the OnStar, factory amp, reverse camera, steering wheel controls, etc. The two options I've found are the Maestro iDatalink, which doesn't support the factory amp, and the Axxess GMOS-MOST-01 which allows you to keep the factory amp but has but a few reviews on Crutchfield and Amazon and most of them are 1 star. I'm not dumping a ton of money onto the stereo, I just want to plug my phone in, connect to CarPlay and go. Options?

Once the warranty expires I am going to do an AFM/DOD delete, long tube headers, exhaust, and tune.

I'm getting ready to flush my brakes next weekend with a Motive pressure bleeder. Is there anything special I need to do with these particular trucks? My plan is to start with the furthest point and work my way around, i.e passenger rear, driver rear, passenger front, driver front. Do I need to worry about cycling the ABS or anything?
My ‘17 Silverado 1500 LTZ with the 8 speed has been hesitating and shifting hard every morning when it’s cold for about the past 6 months. Is that something that would be covered by the TSB for the flush? I’m at just over 45k miles and I’m due for it anyway. If I don’t have to pay for it that would be great.
My truck is mainly a commuter. I drive about 100 miles a day round trip at hwy speed for most of it. I tow and haul occasionally.
What is the maintenance interval for the front and rear differential? I am coming up on 45K on my '17 and I'm going to be doing my transfer case and transmission fluid. Untitled by Brett Valentine, on Flickr
Without reading all 55 pages. I don't want to spend the $$ on a full intake kit as I have another car project in the garage. Is an aFe dry filter worth the money? https://afepower.com/afe-power-31-10292-magnum-flow-pro-dry-s-air-filter
What’s the advantage if the CSS catch can over the standard catch can?
Thanks!! There’s a definite difference, but I had 35x12.50/18 F rated Ridge Grapplers on my 2500 Ram, so I’m kind used to it. I didn’t like the way the Wranglers rode at all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Got mine taken care of this weekend. 275/60/20 Ridge Grapplers and a 2" RC leveling kit. IMG_6087 by Brett Valentine, on Flickr IMG_4688 by Brett Valentine, on Flickr Untitled by Brett Valentine, on Flickr I think I'm going to pick up some vinyl and black out the emblems, get an exhaust put on, and get a tonneau cover, and that's pretty much it. I'm really happy with the truck overall and can't see getting rid of it any time soon.
