  1. Available for pick-up immediately. Excellent condition. Installed two years ago, right after truck purchase (6/2019). Installed by Suburban Caps in New Jersey. Price: $1500 Specific for: 2019 Sierra 1500 (New Body) Truck Bed Length: Standard Bed (79.2") Color: Black (matches GMC factory black) Options include: Yakima Roof Rails, lined interior sliding front window, ability to drop down entire front glass (on latches, allows you to clean/ access the truck cab rear window). Includes two keys. Outward facing windows have been tinted 20% over the ARE factory
  2. The stage 1 icons are longer than the factory struts. I had to remove all of the preload on my icons to get it to sit right (I have an ARE cap). For towing, I ended up installing bags, to keep it level.
  3. I still have my stock struts. I'm trying to minimize my down time, so I asked ICON to ship me the parts for the rebuild & found a shop in the Philly area to do the re-build. Also found a race suspension shop out on Long Island, NY & this sort of work looks like their bread and butter. Unfortunately, I don't have the tools or space (or experience) to perform this work, otherwise I would totally take the time to tackle it. I had also asked ICON if they would sell just the shock (without the spring) & they weren't up for it. I was thinking of keeping a spare
  4. 5k miles! Sounds like I'm lucky mine lasted this long (6 months, 14k miles). My issue is that it's my daily driver & I can't just leave it sitting on stands. So I'm thinking of having it rebuilt locally. Planning to have that conversation with ICON today to see if they'll honor it. I'm between NYC and Philly, so I figured there's got to be somebody who'd be willing to do the rebuild. Do you know anybody?
  5. @Flatblack83 Wondering how many miles you have on your stage 1 ICON coilovers thus far? After about 14,000 miles my passenger side coilover has started to leak fluid. I've started the warranty process with ICON...
  6. I don’t see why they would decline transmission service if it is under warranty or if it is preventative maintenance on the 8 speed transmission (especially considering new trucks are still getting the 8 speed). If the educated consumer is aware that transmission fluid exchange (drain/ fill, filter & gasket replacement) is recommended at 30K intervals, they should honor the request. The filter replacement is not part of their procedure and needs to be requested. Monitor for leaks after the work has been performed, because the mechanic may have over-torqued the transmiss
  7. Oh man, the service writer is completely clueless. I printed, highlight, and showed him all of the relevant GM service bulletins & he completely disregarded them. One bulletin identified that GM does NOT recommend aftermarket additives and fluid flushes for normal service. The other being the procedure for the fluid exchange procedure using the ATF machine w/ 20 quarts of the Mobile Synthetic ATF HP fluid. Eventually, after not being able to deal with me any longer he called over the shop foreman & we had an in depth conversation about the 8 speed transmission bulletins.
  8. I also had to give them a copy of this bulletin....because it looks like they did a flush instead of following the attached bulletin. I know I'm posting this in the wrong thread (I have a new platform truck). MC-10163241-9999.pdf
  9. I just had the dealership perform the transmission service on my 2019 Sierra 1500 5.3L 8-speed. Service was performed on Tuesday. Parts included: BG 6600 Transmission Flush kit ($47, includes 106BG & 310BG), Filter (GM Part No. 24274402), and Fluid (GM Part No. 88865601) Issues thus far: Last night I noticed an oil spot in my driveway, put some cardboard under the transmission pan, and drove it to the dealership this morning. They confirmed the pan was "seeping" and blamed it on a defective gasket. Looking at the parts list, they used the A

  11. I just had this happen to me. This is after I towed a 4300 lb vehicle on a u-haul auto transport for about 120 miles. I dropped off the trailer, drove home, and it happened to me while decelerating to a stop; shift from 2 to 1 gear. I was able to reproduce it several times after that. I scheduled a service appointment to see a master tech. Any idea what is causing it?
  12. @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 t
  13. 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.
