  1. 3.08 would bog me down sooo bad. This is my first truck, just got it late last year, so I didn’t know to check gearing. I got a pretty good deal on it, so I don’t mind putting some work into it. Ordered the 3.73 gears Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I have an '07 Silverado Classic, 76k miles. 2WD, 5.3 engine. Unfortunately I have the 3.23 gears and it's pretty sluggish getting going. I planning a gear swap and can't decide on which size to go with. I have 265/70/17 wheels. Don't do a whole lot of towing, but occasionally haul building tools and lumber around. Mostly short drives back and forth to work, in TN hills. I had thought of going to 4.10 and getting bigger tires later on (and a higher lift). I think I'm going to pass on that though, no lift, sticking with the 265s. So now maybe 3.73 would be better, or 3.90?
  3. Thanks again. I’ve run through the firewall before (for an amp), just don’t like doing it ;) Though I use a coat hanger, maybe that’s the problem. The relay worked though! Ran it to the 30 leg on the relay and voila! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Thanks! Wish I could avoid having to go through the firewall, but guess I may need to. Any idea if I could use the panel behind the parking brake? This diagram labels the middle plug as PARK LAMP. Don’t know what it does though. http://www.autogenius.info/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Chevrolet-Silverado-fuse-box-center-instrument-panel-utility-block.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I just installed some aftermarket power locks in my '07 Classic W/T. However, I can't seem to find anything to tap in to to make the parking lights blink when it locks/unlocks. I'm looking for the (+) wire. Tried the brown wire in the driver's kick panel, didn't work though. Here's a link to the wiring diagram for my kit (http://installgear.com/igcls.pdf).
  6. Irregular trans. shifting

    I’m having the same issue, though I haven’t noticed mine more or less when cold. I’m just at the beginning of tracking it down, but this is my game plan, it it helps at all. Upgrade to Corvette Servo - cheap and easy though I think least likely to be a fix Throttle body replacement - not cheap, $150ish but relatively easy. If you’re TPS is separate from the throttle body, then it’s way cheaper and even easier. Pinless accumulator swap - looks like a pain to do, especially from under the truck. If all that doesn’t work.. transmission rebuild, most likely with some upgrades as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
