  1. Yeah I definitely take his word for it. Any amount of wiggling the plug, or moving the wires around one by one will get it to turn on. Only when i unplug it and plug it back in. I've been pulling out the terminals from the plug one by one, and cleaning and crimping them slightly so they grab the cluster better. The truck did have an aftermarket alarm system/remote start when i got it, I eliminated it because i didnt have a fob, so im wondering if any of the wires involved in that could have anything to do with it. Some of the wires were cut and i had to splice them back together, but wiggling the spliced wires around has no effect on the cluster Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  2. He's jeffescortlx on youtube, I found him by his videos, he does very good work and hes thorough with his rebulds. He went over the whole thing, he didnt just fix the problems. Which terminals/ wires cause these issues on the back so i can look it over again? Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  3. Excessive wear on the outside tread usually indicates a toe out condition, which a loose whee bearing would cause. But I would think both tires would be worn if this was the case, but I'm no expert. Could possibly be positive camber from the strut replacement, but i think thats unlikely. I would definitely get the alignment checked regardless Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  4. I had my cluster for my 03 sierra repaired about a year ago (normal stepper motor issues and dim gear selector) when I got the truck, so im not sure if it already had an issue when I got it, but the gauges will intermittently not work when I start the truck, but if I unplug and plug the cluster back in, they'll start again. Same thing happens if I pull and replace the ipc/dic fuse under the hood(ive tried swapping fuses, new fuse, cleaning contacts, etc.) I made sure the contacts on the back of the cluster were clean as well, and the wires as far as i can see look to be in good shape. Both ground wires and both power wires have good connection. Could it be an issue with the back or something? Ive been driving it for the past year with the dash bezel off and unplugging the cluster to get it to work every time it doesn't. Once it's working, it never shuts back off until I shut the truck off. Nothing works except the backlight, turn signals, and check engine light when it happens. I just sent the cluster back to the guy that fixed it to check it over, and he found no issues with it. Dont know where to go from here, anybody ever deal with this issue?

  5. What kind of budget are you looking at? Lots of people do the basic cat back exhaust, cold air intake and tuner. Replacing the stock muffler with an aftermarket one is usually much cheaper than a whole catback system. If you're looking for more power, a cam swap and a custom tune to go with it would be a good place to start. The right cam can really wake these engines up and should be good for about 50hp Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  6. As far as I know tow/haul changes the shift points and increases fluid pressure in the transmission. Not sure to what extent it would increase the life of the transmission, but it would definitely reduce slippage. The way GM set these transmissions up from the factory is straight up garbage. They prioritized smooth shifts over longevity, thats why i have a corvette servo and transpo hd2 shift kit in mine. Installing a shift kit will do much more to extend the life of the transmission than leaving it in tow/haul. Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  7. I had to pull my y pipe, the nuts came off mine luckily, but i've broken and stripped studs on manifolds in the past, i've always drilled the studs out and replaced them with bolts. Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah, none of chevy fenders/hood, etc. will work without changing the whole nose. I believe all 99-06 gmc fenders, hoods and lights are the same, 03 changed the bumper and grille. The yukon never got the facelift though, so all yukon parts to 06 should work. Not sure about a 2500 or 3500 though. The 99-02 chevys were different. Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  9. Assuming you're talking about hood/fenders/grille etc, 99 to 02 should be a direct swap Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  10. I took my truck to 2 different shops for an alignment and its pulled to the left ever since. The camber is 0.9 on the left and 0.5 on the right. The caster is 0.1 on the driver and 3.5 on the passenger and they say that wont cause it to pull, which I dont believe. The second time I brought it to this place (4th alignment total) they said the adjustments were maxed out, but the pull was due to me installing the pitman arm wrong, but the wheel goes 1 3/4 turns each way from center, so I don't see how that could be. They told me to fix the pitman arm and bring it back. The truck has leveling keys and add a leafs in it, but I didnt think it was impossible to align a truck with a leveling kit.

  11. As long as all 4 tires are the same size it shouldn't be an issue. The computer wouldn't be able to tell if all 4 tires changed in size, although your speedometer would be inaccurate. That being said, you can use a tire size calculator on the internet to find a tire size for an 18 or 20 inch rim and match the stock outside diameter. You can buy a new truck with a 20 or even 22 inch rim, and those tires are pretty low profile Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  12. Do the turn signal indicator lights work? Those and all the backlights are the only incandescent bulbs, the rest are leds. Seems pretty weird that all of them would be burned out like that Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  13. I bought a set of oe style flares for $50 on ebay for my 03 sierra, and they fit like garbage. Im willing to spend some more money for something that fits better. Has anyone had any luck with any different ones? I know you get what you pay for, but am I going to get the same exact flares if I buy a set for 100 bucks? Im not looking to spend 130 each for OEM ones. Thanks Sent from my LM-G710VM using Tapatalk
  14. Got one for my jeep at advance, im sure the chevy ones pretty common also so most parts stores would probably have it Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
  15. Definitely fixable if you're good with a grinder and a welder, probably worth fixing with that low of mileage, but probably not worth your while at that price Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
