  1. Yeah I mean. That’s what I’m saying. Mechanic did the alignment after the install and he said it all looked good. And he’s very good. So any ideas on where to look for what could be goin on??
  2. So, finally installed my 5100’s up front so I have them all the way around now. The truck definitely rides more planted now and handles bumps and potholes and rough roads a lot better. I chose to put the ride height at the 2nd setting which says 3/4” avg lift. I think that’s right about what I got, at least between that and an inch. And I wasn’t looking for much. Never really been interested in lifting or leveling and I don’t mind the rake usually because I haul a big ATV or tow multiples on a trailer. but it seems like the gm trucks have more than others. So before I had just over 3” of rake, and now I have just under 2-1/4”. One thing I definitely noticed tho is that the steering really tightened up. I did an alignment at the same time and that’s right on, but when I’m at full lock left or right, I also noticed the front of the tires are rubbing on my UCA’s now and didn’t before. And this isn’t all that much lift. So my question is: Is that normal, and to be expected? And is that gonna cause problems for the UCA’s/ tires in the long term? If so I’m probly gonna remove these and drop it back down to factory height cuz I already don’t like the way the steering feels, and to do damage over 3/4” front end lift isn’t worth it to me. Thanks for any info, peeps! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Finally installed my bilstein 5100 fronts on the 2nd setting. Got just under an inch of lift up front! [emoji1360][emoji1360] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. If often wanted to upgrade, but I think there’s a legal limit or something around here. I remember YouTube vids of a dude with a Mack truck air horn in his car going around scaring the shizzola out of unsuspecting pedestronians and he got busted as I recall. Haha probly just the behavior and not the horn. But I’ve definitely seen threads on past forums of people doing it. Dodgetalk I remember had a big thread on it. I remember they’re not cheap and the ones with a tank, it’s about the size of the spare battery location so pretty big. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Take look at a set of these: Roadmaster Active Suspension. One goes on top of each leaf spring and they’re pretty effective. A ton of info on their site about what they do. Activesuspension.com Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I also found this from an article when they were being released. Evidently if it had CarPlay it didn’t necessarily also have android auto but sounds like if it had android auto it also always had CarPlay. Weird: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’m pretty sure the module did both when it came out. But I didn’t have a GM when that happened so I can’t be positive. But here are my menu screens: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Pretty sure if it has one it has the other. I think you can enable and disable them separately in settings. Check there. I’ll look at mine after I get out of work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Makes sense. I actually assumed you would have started at the 2mm disc what with the RV and all.
  10. I’ve actually found that 90% rubbing alcohol that they sell at CVS, etc. in the spray bottle works great. And doesn’t leave a residue you have to work to get clean like goo gone (which I also use) I just feel like the alcohol is easier on the clear coat than the goo gone is since that’s more of a solvent.
  11. My neighbor has an every that size and pulls it with a 2500 Silverado, because his half ton made him worry.
  12. And yes that’s about what I saw in height change. I’m interested to see what you think when you hook up the RV.
  13. Yeah I’d see how it does first as normal. Roadmaster even says it helps reduce the need for those (I doubt completely tho).
  14. YES!!!!!! I haven’t spun or bounced at a light or on a turn since installing!!
  15. That’s a great color! [emoji1360][emoji1360][emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
