  1. Thanks guys. Some good ideas. I have some boxes in the shop from Amazon and Walmart and will stack them in the driveway and see what happens.
  2. Oh, I’m sorry, I thought DH is the one that replied about being sure it was turned on. I will pay more attention next. Thanks again.
  3. Thanks DH, I looked at my settings and it may have been on Alert. It has off, alert, and alert with braking, and before I paid attention I pressed off because I thought it would turn to “on” but it doesn’t. I pressed alert with braking and will see what happens the next time I drive it.
  4. Thanks Nitro, I think I will get the GM Dealer to look into this on my next oil change. I too had the red flashing light and seat vibration when a car in front of me turned off and I passed close to him, but no breaks applied that I could tell. I want that function to work since I may need it some day and I paid for it.
  5. Thanks for the reply. Have you ever felt your automatic brake assist do anything?
  6. I have a 2017 GMC Denali pickup and it has the Lane Keep Assist on it and I really like that. The problem is that it won’t assist until the tires are on the center line or slightly over the center line. The assist works much better when the tires are close to the right edge and will turn the steering wheel when the tires are around one or two feet from the line. I would like it to do the same distance from the center line. Is there a way to adjust the camera?
  7. I have, on purpose, closely approached the rear of a couple of cars sitting at red lights and I have never felt my brakes automatically try to stop my 2017 Denali pickup. Is this normal? I have it turned on and also the settings on the steering wheel set to 3 ))). If my system isn’t working, I need to know it. Anybody know a way to test it?
  8. Like x4rd, my 2017 yellow symbol will light up if I get close to the line but the seat doesn’t vibrate unless I go over the line. I have a question about Lane Keep. I really like this feature and it works well when I approach the right painted line but my tires have to be pretty much on the center painted line before the Assist will help. Is there any way to adjust the camera to make Assist work before the truck gets to the center line?
  9. I like anything that helps me avoid an accident but I’m not sure my AEB is working. I have the settings to the highest with 3 ))) showing but I have purposefully approached a couple cars at red lights pretty close and never felt the brakes come on. Have any of you felt your brakes come on?
  10. Thanks cansled, I don’t know how I missed your post when I first started. I thought I searched! What a counsidence! You and I have gone through the exact same thing except my Denali is a 17. Where did you get the Timbrens? You said one bolt to remove them. I’m not familiar with what you are speaking of. I have read up on the air bags and maybe the Timbrens are better? I will see if I can find some information on them. I assume they won’t affect warranty?
  11. Pearl, Amazon doesn’t show the model you mentioned.
  12. Thank you. I have spent 2 hours reading up on these air bag lifts but can’t find anything that says they will work with the Magna shocks. These shocks have some linkages that attach to the axle and to a little device on the frame that I assume tells the shocks what to do and I’m not too sure that nothing will hit! Are you familiar with this?
  13. Thank you all. I will get and add the Ride Right before I pull again and will report on the ride.
  14. Thanks again for the replies. Pearl2017, can you recommend what air bags to get? I will do that. Sierra Dan, I had 22” on the 2 wheel drive Chevy and it rode ok, but I understand what you are saying. I would hate to change these tires because this truck really handles well and rides good when not loaded. Plus that’s a lot of $$$.
  15. Update: as Pearl2017 suggested, today I and friends sat and bounced on the tailgate of the Denali with the switch off and the key removed and then again with the engine running. We couldn’t tell much, if any, difference! So, I assume the shocks are not changing the bounce by much and now conclude the shocks are not the problem! But, we did notice that at about 450 lbs of weight the 2 top springs contact the third spring (as seen in the picture) and stops any further downward movement and feels like the bed has hit bottom although it didn’t. So now I’m guessing that is what’s happening with the camper. The rear of the truck doesn’t move downward much before contact is made with the third spring! So, now what do I do? Can there be this much difference between this truck and the 2015 Double Cab Chevy I had?
