  1. I currently have the RC 2.5 inch leveling kit on my 2015 Silverado 2WD on all stock shocks. I am looking to replace all shocks with Bilstein 5100s for the improved ride quality, but I would like a little more ground clearance as well. Just looking for a little more aggressive look and a little more ground clearance for putting around the hunting property, no major off-road stuff with 2WD of course. I think the RC 3.5 inch suspension lift with UCA would give me the look and clearance I want, but I've read several people ripping that off and going with Bilstein due to the ride quality. I'm torn because it looks like I don't need to combine RC spacers with Bilstein shocks. Any suggestions on which route to go? I'm currently running 275/60/20 BFG KO2, but I would like to go up to 285/60/20 when the time comes.
  2. On my 2015 Silverado Crew Cab 2WD, I currently have the RC 2.5 inch spacer leveling kit with all stock shocks. I am wanting to replace all 4 shocks with Bilstein 5100s. Does anyone have experience combining these shocks with the spacers from RC? I would also like a little more ground clearance. Nothing too crazy, just a little more aggressive look than the stock 2WD height with a leveling kit. Trying to decide if I take the spacers out and go with the RC 3.5 inch suspension lift with upper control arms, remove the spacers and go with Bilstein 5100 on the highest setting all around, or simply replace all shocks with 5100 and keep the spacers up front. Just trying to figure out what will get me the look I want and also be the most mechanically sound so I don't cause any weird issues with ball joints, etc. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!
  3. I had an appointment today to get the pump replaced. The work is going to be covered however, the pump is on back-order with no known lead time. They also deemed my vehicle "unsafe" to drive yet GM will not pay for a rental in the meantime. Gotta love GM!!
  4. I also have this same squeak on my 2015 5.3. I cut out the flapper valve and put on a Flowmaster. Eliminated v4 to v8 squeak, but I still get the squeak on startup. Anyone know what to use to grease the starter as someone mentioned before? I started my truck while laying underneath and the noise seemed to be coming from the starter.
  5. I am having this same issue on my 2015 Silverado Crew Cab. Would anyone think the vacuum pump would be covered under powertrain warranty?
  6. Thanks for the video Jason, thats exactly what I was looking for! I think I will start with that setup and see how I like it. If I want more sound down the road I can cut out the resonator.
  7. Thanks, I will check out the different videos. Probably going to go ahead and do it because the adaptive valve is about to drive me nuts.
  8. Hello, I am looking for recommendations or advice regarding the Flowmaser 40 series single out muffler. I am wanting to remove the adaptive valve on my 2015 V8. If I cut off the valve, replace the muffler, and leave the resonator, will I still get the Flowmaster sound? I wouldn't mind a deeper sound, but I don't want it to be too loud either. Just trying to find that happy-medium. The main reason is because I am getting the "chirp" or "squeak" from the adaptive valve. My AFM Disabler helped with the chirp when switching from V4 to V8, but I still hear it when I crank my truck. Any info or advice would be appreciated. Thanks! Ben
