I've got a High Country with 15K and change on the odometer and the SU4 front axle and have not heard a peep. I've gone under the truck and there is the slop/play where the axle goes into the diff (just like the video in the beginning of this thread) but no noise. I've been following this thread simply because I don't think that slop should be there and can't be good for the longevity of the drivetrain despite the assurances from GM.
General Motors expected to provide Alaskan relocation assistance to all "Jinglers" as it would be fiscally preferable than actually fixing their trucks. Sorry, couldn't help myself. Figured this topic needed a little levity.
I agree but it was my salesman trying to help me vs. leaving me in the hands of the service department and he knows I can find out information that he doesn't understand. I buy many vehicles from the dealership yearly and my salesman gets me further than the service department does. Copy that. Hope you get it squared away.
I used stainless nut-serts to install mine. I drilled the holes, painted the bare metal and then installed the nut-serts. Worked great. https://www.amazon.com/Stainless-Steel-Rivnut-Insert-Nutsert/dp/B01MS0ED4L
I have a Retrax bed cover and have had zero issues with regard to the swing cases. Thanks for the tip on the latches...think I'll spray mine down today with lithium grease as a form of preventative maintenance.
Not really. My old truck never had them so I've never really relied on them. Plus there is the cab mounted overhead light too if I need it. And I can always "swing" the case to the side and uncover the light if need be. The passenger side case covers my 110 outlet but, again, just swing the case over and I can easily access it.
There is a good amount of room. There is a removable tray. Underneath the tray there is a sectioned off area where it arcs up near the wheel and a much larger open space opposite of that. The one thing I would be worried about is weight. They're not crappy material or anything but I wouldn't call them heavy duty either. Not sure what the manufacturer rates them for. I emptied one out and took some pics with a tape measure.
Towing gear, bungee cords, ratchet straps, tools, gloves, jumper cables, etc. Like a previous poster mentioned, easily removed if the extra room is needed. I installed mine with stainless threaded nut-serts so I can also remove the brackets also though I don't anticipate having to. GM gave me a $500 credit toward accessories for my truck due to my rear window fiasco and I bought both swing cases with it.
If you haven't already, check the settings again in the infotainment system. A system update or dealer software recall could have changed them or returned them to the default settings.
