I agree, there really should be an eAssist subforum. I also have a 2017 Silverado 1500 with eAssist and am eyeing a new intake to improve airflow (and it looks cleaner). Got a flowmaster super 40 dual exhaust (debating on muffler delete), AFM disabler from Range Technology (For me it has disabled both the auto-stop feature and V4 mode), front and back heavy-duty bumpers with a front level kit. I love that the eassist adds a little some power when I tow. Does your truck drone a lot with the Borla exhaust in V4 mode? i have that issue with flowmaster and that is the reason i got the Range disabler.
I have just tried this without the Range device and it does not seem to backfire, but when I plugged the Range back in, it didn't do anymore backfiring. Interesting I have also talked to a mechanic that has worked on some of these newer trucks and he has said that the computer inside of the truck needs time to "relearn" since the truck now has a new "code" and is supposed to change itself to operate smoothly. He said that it may take around 10 drive cycles (when the engine is up to operation temp) to "relearn". Hopefully it just takes time like he said. It may be possible that the lifter had gotten stuck before trying this Range disabler too and when it was plugged in it stayed stuck. After driving a little without the disabler and allowing it to switch back to V4 mode it may have freed that possible stuck lifter, I have plugged the device back in and so far it is running fine with no backfiring. If something gets worse, I'll contact my dealer. Thank you for the input!
Thank you, I'll see what happens over the next couple of days. Hopefully whatever is causing it to backfire is not a constant thing, because this Range device has solved all of the major problems I have been having on this truck and I would hate for it to be causing a problem that might damage another thing and have to get rid of it.
I have about 30 minutes ago and it did not backfire when switching from V4 back to V8 like it used to , and no backfiring while decelerating. It goes into V4 mode while decelerating, maybe that is why? I recently purchased the Range device directly from them, they said it has the most up to date firmware too.
I have recently purchased a Range AFM disabler for my 2017 Silverado 1500 E-assist because of the constant stopping and starting at stop lights, exhaust drone from V4, weird shifting from V4 to V8 and my transmission liking to jerk/shifting hard every so often. After installing the Range device, it has solved my transmission issues, disabled stopping and starting at stop lights, and has been keeping it in V8 mode 24/7! The only thing I have noticed is that when I am decelerating slowly (not touching brake pedal) from a speed of around 50 MPH or more, the engine will have a fast repetitive backfiring popping sound until i either get back on the gas pedal or have reached a speed of 35 MPH. Other than that problem, I really like the product from Range Technologies.

It seems to happen when i am decelerating slowly and not fast, starts to backfire when it starts to downshift at around 900-1100 RPMs I have a flowmaster Super40 cat-back dual 2.5 inch exhaust with the third "cat" still on. It used to not backfire when the AFM was active BUT when decelerating, it would switch back into V4 mode. is there a way to fix this? Is there too much freeflowing exhaust? Can this backfiring through the exhaust cause any damage if left unfixed? Thanks, -Hunter
I am looking at the Readylift 66-3086 2.25" FRONT LEVELING KIT W/ CONTROL ARMS - GM 1500 TRUCK / SUV 6-LUG 2017-2018 https://www.readylift.com/2-25-front-leveling-kit-w-control-arms-gm-1500-truck-suv-6-lug-2017-2018.html For my 2017 Silverado 1500 LT with factory 17 inch aluminum wheels and 255/70R17 tires. After talking to the company, they said that I may need a 1/2 inch wheel spacer for the front so the control arms don't rub on the wheels. Is this true or is this something to try and get me to buy? The main reason I am looking at replacing the upper control arms is because I have an aftermarket heavy duty bumper with grill guard and it weighs around 200Lbs. That worries me with the factory STAMPED control arms it has now. If I need spacers, what spacer is best and cheap? Would I have to modify the studs? What else would I have to do so it doesn't rub? Thanks!
Thank you! I was able to get it. there was one that I was afraid of damaging so I found a very short flat blade screwdriver and was able to pop it off. Unlike some of the clips on other panels of the truck that are metal, this one has plastic clips.
Hey, so I am trying to replace the speaker wire in my rear door speakers and I cannot get the panel off that is on the column between the front door and rear door. This column panel has the speaker wires running up it into my rear door. How do I remove the panel without breaking the little red Clips inside? Thanks, Hunter
