Thanks for the info. I swapped out to continental AT's and the ride is insanely different. I do still have the larger than normal bump going on in the rear. I am wondering if this is just normal truck bumps or more like...something is loose/ needing replacement? the truck was a towing machine before I got it, I am wondering if leaf springs/ Ubolts need to be checked? OR, if like I said, this is normal.
Sorry to keep this going. Figured you guys would want updates. I got the continentals today. It's like driving on clouds. Very nice. I have never had continentals, but, I will buy them all the time now for sure. These tires are a game changer Crappy pic- will get a better one tomorrow. https://imgur.com/a/fw5vTfw
Maybe im thinking about this wrong....do the tow bags replace springs that were in place on the axle? Or, was there simply nothing but a bump stop there before? Now im wondering if this question even makes sense.
Hey Guys! Quick question for those that have tow bags/ know about them. Do they increase/decrease performance? Meaning, If I DO NOT tow, and just leave the bags deflated/at the 3lbs the manufacturer states, would I see a noticeable (better) difference moving back to the spring setup? Would it be worse? I would love to hear some feedback. First time owning a truck that came with tow bags.
Not going to lie, I stared at your truck pics waaaay too long. Could be this makers mark, or, could be the beauty. Thanks for the info. Going to try changing tires first, these goodyear duratracs are known to be absolute sheeit. Going to get some continental AT's and see what that does. Next stop would be the halo lifts/ Fox shocks (will do research)
The Blue/Violet Wiring listed in the link above went to the MAF as indicated and the Air/Fuel Mixture sensor. For my truck, having the setup/engine I have, I do not have the Flex fuel setup OEM. There is a plug that does not connect to anything and just sits on the corner support of the frame at the Front of the Fuel Tank. This Plug is capped, BUT, not tied down to anything. It has a lot more movement than it did from factory so, it started dangling off the corner support, causing the wires to rub against the sharp frame metal. This is what caused the Fuse to blow while driving.
you have the bilsteins AND a level on? I would take the level kit off. This looks like its pushing it imo. That and, bilstein specifically states to not use leveling kits with these. Just use the notches to level. The CV's will be much happier.
My very first thought is Oil pan. Does your truck have an aftermarket oil pan? Just a first thought though...Normally, oil expands after being ran. The fact that yours is not showing up at all though? Very weird. I know sometimes dip sticks can end up being too short as well. It would be worth looking into checking with a neighbor/ someone else you know with same engine and truck just to be sure. (or just buy a new OEM if you are paranoid like me)
