  1. Would helper springs provide the added stiffnes? Or is that just goona help with loads?
  2. Will I be causing myself any problems by doing the sway bar first? Ed
  3. Ride is a 2016 LT DC 4x4 1500. Not happy with it's handling. Just seems kind of floaty to me. More body roll than I am used to. I have been looking at a Hellwig 7735 rear anti-sway bar. Mainly because it seems to be the one I have seen mentioned more times than any other. Prices are $377.02 at most retailers. Although one has offered it to me for 5% of because it's been sitting in my shopping cart for a couple days. I don't plan on ding the install my self, but I have a trusted shop that will. My question comes down to this. Is it worth the investment? Ed
  4. I don't think I have ever relied on traction control for anything. It wasn't until after that I started to think about it. It may just be the difference in the way my last truck handled compared to this one. This one is leaf springs. That one was coil.
  5. You make a lot of sense though. That's exactly what it did. I got rid of the Dodge because the frame was rusting so bad. The fuel tank almost fell out of it because the strap holding it pulled through the frame.
  6. That's a lot better! That's the same thing I didn't understand. I don't think staying in it to see if it was going to work was an option. The rear end was starting to come around and I backed off of it to correct it. I don't think it's a POS truck. I was really questioning whether the traction control was working like it should. I think you're probably right. Had I stayed in it it probably would have kicked in. The Dodge I last had wouldn't let it go nearly as far. But, it was a far different truck. It was a Hemi. 390hp as opposed to 355. It was 2 wd. It had 20 inch wheels (p275/60/R20 as I recall. This truck has 17 inch wheels (P255/70R17). The thing just caught me off guard. I apologize if I was rude.
  7. Yeah the differences between Chevy and Dodge are quite perplexing. I can handle the truck that's not a problem. If it had been nannied to death. the traction control would have kicked in. It did not.
  8. Is this something you need a tuner for? Or is there somewhere I can change the parameters in the user accessible settings of the truck?
  9. It seemed to me as though I had no traction control at all. Gonna have to pay attention to my right foot!
  10. It sure surprised me! Came around real quick! A more inexperienced driver might have lost it. Just gotta keep my head in the game!
