  1. @Flatblack83 $1200 + labor is an unnecessary upgrade at this time IMO. I just dropped a bunch of money on the ICON stage 1 kit. I’d like to get a bit more use out of the factory leaf springs. But the full replacement is a good idea down the line... I was just looking for good alternatives, as the GMC doesn’t have a 1” block kit with U-bolts for the new body 1500s. They do sell a kit for the old body, but have said it may not work with the new body... Was also considering road master active suspension or any other recommended accessory to help keep the truck level when it’s loaded. I don’t tow or anything like that. thanks tho!
  2. Finally found someone who sells a Deaver mini pack for 1” of rear lift for the new trucks: https://performancelifts.com/deaver-2019-current-silverado-sierra-1500-mini-pack-n35.html Trying to put some rake back into it after leveling the truck. After adding ICON coil overs up front, about 1.5” lift in the front, the truck squats with any sort of load in the back. I also have an ARE topper on the truck bed, which adds 200-300 lbs to the regular load. I can also lower the ICONS another 1/2” about in the front, by removing all of the preload on the springs. Anyone have any experience with these? They do not include new U-bolts.
  3. My truck was leveled out at about 1.5”. It actually sits 1/4” higher in the front right now, so I’m due back at the shop on Monday for a re-torque, final measurements, and any other needed adjustments. I actually stopped by the dealership yesterday & got a copy of the recommended alignment specs for my specific vehicle. I was curious to see how it differed from alignment after the kit was installed. So there are some slight discrepancies in caster and toe. The steering kind of settled in over the last day, but I feel like the steering is stiffer than what it used to be, prior to the install. Anyway here are some pics of how it came out. It’s sitting on a decline and looks good. It’s only when I park it on a bit of an incline Does it begin to look nose high & so I begin to wonder if I should have them bring it down to 1” of lift in the front. It’s weird with the GMCs because of the way the wheel well is designed and the aggressive grill, with the slightest lift It looks nose high.
  4. My experience is about the same with the improved handling (also on PA roads - had the kit installed in Dover, PA). Its about 4-5 threads above the spring collar (haven't taken a measurement - but just eyeballed it). I'm assuming it came set that way from the factory. Does that sound right to you? I'm still learning....Will take some pictures tomorrow
  5. @Flatblack83 I just had the ICON stage 1 kit installed on my 2019 Elevation Double Cab - with the front set at about 1.5" level. Loving the kit & how it rides. But I'm finding that the the it wanders a bit at highway speeds & the steering is a bit dull. What has been your experience with steering? Do you still have a copy of the alignment report? Thanks!
  6. Software update came in today on my ‘19 Sierra. Does anyone know what the contents of the update are?
  7. Not yet at the point where I'm willing to lemon law the truck. I have a 100k warranty on it, ARE cap, and clear bra on the hood/ bumper. If I continue to have issues, then I will start considering lemon law. Thus far, the GM dealership in Carlisle, PA have been taking pretty good care of me. I'm hoping the software issues will eventually be resolved. I'm reading on another thread that many of brake assembly issues are starting to tie back to the remote start on these vehicles...
  8. Remote start this morning from the GM app, to also find a check engine light. Took it to the dealer, code P25A2 was stored "Check BSCM for codes - all communication codes, Check connections at BSCM and ECM). Everything checked out OK and they cleared the codes. (BSCM - Brake System Control Module) Today, they cleared the code and reset the check engine light. No other work was performed. The dealer has already replaced the brake assembly module, concurrent with the same week back in December when they issued the recall (picked up the truck on 12/19). Originally, they replaced the brake assembly module due to a faulty brake pad wear sensor, which screwed up the programming of the brake assembly. Since they couldn't troubleshoot it - they had to replace the entire assembly. All these problems started after a routine oil change back in November, at which time they addressed a brake system recall. I've had the truck for almost 6 months & have put about 15,000 miles on it. Even if I wanted to trade it in at this point, I would still owe GM almost $15k.
  9. https://www.gm-trucks.com/gm-issues-recall-n192268090-for-2019-silverado-sierra-brake-system-malfunction/ Well here is the recall for this issue......
  10. @TLDLTD I had the same issue. Truck serviced on a Friday morning for the recall & come Monday morning my dashboard lit up. No prior issues. I ended up driving for another two days with the check engine light on. I just picked up my truck from service today & they ended up replacing the entire assembly associated with the braking system. Turns out the ZF IBC assembly has multiple modules that control everything braking related: ABS, brake wear, stability/ traction control, etc. The specific codes on my truck indicated an issue with a rear wheel brake wear sensor issue. They checked all of the wiring & the issue came back to a module on the assembly. They had issues troubleshooting it & ended up replacing the entire assembly. This explains why I was able to continue driving the truck for hundreds of miles, even after the initial fault. If any one of the individual systems that this assembly control faults, then they have to replace the entire assembly. The engineers at GM have not given the dealerships a way to service the individual modules on the assembly yet. The truck went in on Tuesday afternoon, they overnighted the part, and performed the work this morning. The assembly is accessed through the driver side wheel well. Brake by wire may be unavoidable for us as consumers. But, I would not own one of these trucks without a warranty, as parts and labor would easily make this a $1500-$2000 repair. That said, I'm happy to have my truck back.
  11. @Booger T they are wanting to replace my master cylinder as well & they are saying it unrelated to the programming performed during brake recall.
  12. @Tomtom87 I’ll circle back to this thread, once I take it back to service and know something more conclusive. I also got a diagnostic email from OnStar with the following codes: ECM - Engine System (P25A2) ABS - Braking and Stability System (C0021)
