  1. I noticed over the weekend when backing my boat down the ramp that my ABS brakes are kicking in the whole time while backing up. Makes it very difficult to stop the truck. I can even replicate it without the boat by just backing down a slope in reverse and applying the brakes, you can feel the ABS brakes kick in and the peddle goes to the floor. I cant get into the dealer till next week, is there a way to disable the ABS brakes in the mean time since i pull a trailer for work? I will mention this just started happening since I replaced my front rotors and brake pads. Is there something that needs to be reset in the computer possibly?
  2. I have a 2017 4x4 with a 6" Fabtech lift and 35" tires with about 70K miles. I am starting to hear my upper ball joint pop when turning. Does anyone have experience with going to an upgrade control arm and ball joint? I called 4wheel parts to discuss options and they said to go with stock replacements, the Congnito, Kryptonate, or any other upgraded arm needs lots of maintenance. I guess he means you have to keep them lubed? I also read the Cognito arms will improve the ride and the angles. Not sure what to do.
  3. Refresh fixed it, now I can tune to all channels. Thanks for your help.
  4. So I just got my truck back from having all the lifters and pushrods replaced under warranty for a lifter failure, 70K miles on 6.2 engine. Now, I just noticed when I'm driving around in the city and I give it a little gas, it down shifts and the engine feels like it hesitates/shakes for a second then goes. Doesn't feel like the trans, feels more like motor hesitation. I do have a Black Bear tune that removes the V4 mode junk. I took it back to the shop that did the work and they said they can't make it happen and find nothing wrong. Not sure where to go from here. Only happens when it downshifts in slower speeds, i dont notice it at higher speeds on the highway.
  5. Having a weird issue in my truck with the Sirius satellite radio. There are a couple of channels I can not access unless I am out of town. Once I leave San Antonio, the channels become available. Drive back into town and they wont work. My wifes Acadia has basically the same looking radio, and hers works all the time. Any ideas? Antenna issue maybe?
  6. (2) Brand new Bilstein 5100 Series Ride Height Adjustable Shock Absorber - 24-238304 brand new just out of boxes. These fit GMC or Chevy 2014-2019 GM 1500 trucks. Front Lift Height: 0-1.85" $200 for the set plus shipping cost. Can be picked up in San Antonio 78259
  7. I know this is an old thread, but I have a squeak or a creek noise coming from my leaf springs. Its driving me crazy. When you slowly come to a stop, you can hear it and then when you take off again. Sounds like a creaking door opening and closing. Only happens when you move forward or come to a stop. Jumping up and down on the truck wont do it, only accelerating from a stop and coming to a stop. It goes away when the truck gets wet or its raining, then returns.
  8. Thats my plan this weekend. I haven't looked but can the plug be accessed without pulling the grill ?
  9. Will do. If replacing the shutter, do you buy the whole shutter assembly or is there just an electrical component to replace ? I only find the part number for whole assembly which is around $250.
