  1. 2014+ Leveling Kits

    I am only hitting the carpet on both sides at full lock. I need to cut it. That is what the guy who installed it said. I don't think I have any problems with control arms hitting. I only have about 150 miles on it and haven't scrubbed. I haven't really needed to lock the wheels. I had 63k on my factory tires. They were shot. These tires seem to ride really good. I wish I would have did this sooner.

  4. A/C Condenser

    If it makes you feel any better; it takes a pretty good amount of r-134a freon to refill the truck. I spent about $75 dollars at O'reilly to buy freon and dye to confirm where my leak was. The freon then leaked bake out in about 2 weeks. The two guys I work with, had mom and pop shops replace the condenser. They paid about $800 or $900 for the job to be completed. I would get a second opinion if the dealership says a high price. The job is not very hard to do. Aftermarket condenser are only around $100 dollars for these trucks. Three cans of freon off amazon was around $25. I fixed my truck at 53000 miles and it has been cooling for 4000 miles now. There isn't a whole lot to remove to fix this. It is pretty much just the plastic piece and then the core support underneath. The airbox had to come out. Radiator then leans back, you pull the condenser out, and take the lines lose. The condenser is also your transmission cooler. I had a time getting the cooler lines back on, while the actually a/c condenser lines went on easy. I think gm buys cheap made condenser and then has the brackets welded on them for the model vehicle they need. The bracket placement was never intended by the designers. That is the only way I can figure chevy would let these keep failing. The condenser is held on the front of the radiator with plastic clips. Good luck man
  5. A/C Condenser

    I finally got time to fix my A/C tonight. It held vacuum at -29 and dropped maybe a 1/4 point in an hour. That 1/4 point drop was after my pump was turned off and the gauges were closed. I think that my amazon gauges are not the greatest. It ended up costing me about 350 to do it myself. That and about 7 hours of my time. I went with an aftermarket condenser. I hope I am retiring from A/C work. It is not for me.
  6. A/C Condenser

    My condenser failed at 53,000 miles. I have a 2015 Chevy Silverado crew cab Z71. I ordered the condenser and seals to replace it myself today. It will probably take a week to get the parts. Looks like it is leaking slowly around the welds. I have had UV dye in for 2 days. .
