  1. For the 3 people that are reading this, I decided to take a chance and purchase & install the Rancho RS9000 rear shocks and Quick Struts to match. The truck now sits level and rides better than when I first bought it 3 years ago, even wife agrees. No regerts. Still have the dash error for Suspension Systems needs service but there are proven options for that once it annoys me enough to spend the cash. I purchased the RS9000 rears and Quick Struts from shocksurplus.com for a grand total of $610. Best mod to date.
  2. Long story short, I think I need to buy springs but don't know which ones to select. RockAuto has 27 different "GM Genuine" coil springs for a 2017 GMC Sierra with 6.2L engine. I am wanting to match the spring rate of a 2017 GMC Sierra SLT CrewCab 4x4 6.2L. If someone has this exact truck, maybe they could post their RPO codes please? Or maybe, hopefully, someone has a better idea to get this info? The long story (if you care to read on) is I have the 2017 GMC Sierra Denali CrewCab 4x4 6.2L with MagneRide shocks & struts. The truck has just under 60K miles and the ride quality has degraded over time. I know at least 1 shock is bad due to it leaking, no codes have been thrown on the dash. Due to the mileage and the expense of the MagneRide shocks, I am pursuing replacing them all with conventional shocks and at the same time, getting my truck level. Several options on the market claiming great ride quality but I'm leaning towards the Bilstein 5100's that I've had on past trucks or the Eibach ProTruck kit E80-23-006-02-22 for $704 that sound great too but I'll need to buy strut mounts and deal with compressing those beasts (others have had issues). Or possibly the RoughCountry E2 loaded struts #501029 - inexpensive but not sure on ride quality + reliability or maybe even Fox 2.0's if I can find them for a good price. I would even consider the Belltech coilovers #15102 for $650 /pair if I could find someone running them with a positive review. If/since my MagneRide coil springs aren't the same/compatible, with some kits including the Bilsteins, I'll need to buy new springs, which isn't a huge deal since they aren't too expensive - some as low as $34. I know Eibach's kit comes with springs included but it appears they have a higher spring rate for trucks with extra weight on the front of their trucks. Of course, I'll need to deal with the MRC electronics, cheapest I've found is https://www.magdelete.com/collections/sierra-1500 and I may end up just getting the entire kit from him but don't know which springs are used with his either... It does make some sense that there are so many different GM Genuine coil springs due to there being 3 different engines available, 3 different cab sizes and 4 different trims... I do zero off-roading or towing and am just looking for a nice street ride with a leveled look. I welcome input on anything I've said but I'm mainly looking for the proper conventional OEM spring that will match best with my truck.
  3. I understand the tire subject has been beaten to death but please hear me out. I currently have the Nitto Ridge Grapplers in 295/55/20. They are E rated tires. I really like how they look but after running them for 2 years, they are loud and harsh in my 2017 crew cab sierra denali 4x4 6.2L . I'm looking for a quiet tire with a SL load rating, comfortable ride but aggressive look. I'll probably be going with 275/60/20 for the new tire size but also considering 285/55/20. I've been doing tons of research, reading reviews and forums but since I have no experience with the 3 tires in the poll, I'm specifically looking for people with first hand experience switching from an E rated tire to a SL / XL / P rated tire. I have also owned the Nitto TerraGrapplers and did like them ok but looking for something different. My truck is mainly driven in the city 85%, highway 10% and about 5% in the country (gravel, muddy fields, etc) while hunting a couple times a year. I also live in Missouri, so we do see some snow from time to time but that is not much of a concern with 4x4 already. Price is less of a concern but since it is relevant: Falken Wildpeak 275/60/20 - $238 each or $952 for 4 Toyo OpenCountry AT3 285/55/20 - $234 each or $936 for 4 Toyo OpenCountry AT3 275/60/20 - $266 each or $1064 for 4 Goodyear TrailRunner 275/60/20 - $156 each or $623 for 4 I'm getting old and want a smoother ride=lame. I know the magnaride is not the smoothest, I plan to see if the tires do the trick for me and if not, suspension is next. Many thanks!!
  4. I hear what you are saying, lowering the price of something for sale increases the likelihood of it selling faster - I'm just not in a hurry as many people are, besides it does say OBO... Furthermore, I have seen many replicas with new tires online for around $2K but mine are not replicas. I think used OEM wheels in excellent shape should sell for more than new replicas. Thanks for your input and wishing me good luck!
  5. Taken from a 2017 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate - - 22" GM CK164 Wheels and tires package for sale. 4 wheels, 22x9 aluminum + 4 tires + 4 TPMS sensors installed + 4 tires mounted + 4 center caps TPMS sensors and Lug Nuts INCLUDED OEM wheel part number 19301164 7-spoke silver with black inserts and they retail about $500 each. 285/45R22 Brigestone Dueler A/T RH-S tires have 30K on them but they definitely still have some life left in them - I don't have a tire tread gauge or I could tell you the exact depth. All parts listed here are OEM Factory parts unlike the cheap knock-off replicas you find on the internet. Located in Columbia, Missouri. $1800 OBO EDIT: I would consider shipping them if buyer pays for shipping, up front and payment clears. I did a quote through Greyhound Package Express and it is roughly $400 to ship them to the lower 48 states, give or take depending on your location. If you choose this option, you will have to be patient with me shipping them as I will have to drive 2 hours each way to get to a Greyhound shipping location.
  6. This is the only picture I currently have - taken from a crowded garage after the rain... Plastidip does work well in my experience but removal from something like the Denali grill could be very time consuming. I opted to just replace the handles and mirror caps because they weren't that expensive from http://www.shopchevyparts.com/ Just beware that the shipping can be pricey.
  7. Thanks, I like the black inserts as well but, given the choice, I think I may end up with something all black like the Fuel Hydro 20x9's, still making up my mind though. I like the more aggressive tread in an all-terrain. It just bugs me that my truck is 4x4 with a 6.2 V8 running on low-profile 45's and 22" wheels... I'm not into all the bling and have already changed out the chrome mirror caps and door handles for all black. Looks much better IMO. Plus, I think if I choose wisely on the tires, it will also improve the ride. First is a leveling lift though.
  8. New to me 2017 - bone stock for now. Wheels and tires this spring/summer.
