  1. It's a crew cab short bed. 5' 8" - maybe the combination of short bed and 6.2L 4WD explains the 4" difference. I was hoping to limit my level to 2" in the front just to avoid needing any other suspension upgrades or potential issues. Do you think a 2" difference front to rear will even look any better than what I have now? Kind of frustrating, would be nice to go with a 1.5 or 2" level and be within an inch or less front to rear
  2. Hey guys I'm looking to level my 2017 Sierra Denali 4wd 6.2L. I noticed my rear sits 4" higher than the front (36" front/40" rear). I measured from ground through center of wheel to fenderwell AND from center of wheel up to fenderwell to hopefully get rid of any difference caused by tire pressure. Still 4" difference. That seems pretty high to me. Could it be from the larger engine up front, or am I missing something? I was hoping to just install the SuspensionMaxx 2" level and get pretty close to level but it looks like I'll still have 2" of rake. I guess as a side note I was hoping to install 275/60/20 Duratracs after the level. That should fit no problem, right? Thanks !
  3. Quick update - Got the truck back from the dealership yesterday and they flushed the transmission and filled it with the new fluid. The shudder is gone, the truck drives SO MUCH better now. So much smoother. I'm still unsure about my 3rd question on the original post about how much difference there is between my front and rear height. Anyone have any input on that? Thanks
  4. Hey guys, Just wanted to do an introduction post now that I'm about 1month into owning my 2017 Sierra Denali with the 6.2 and Ultimate pkg (35K miles). I figure I should create a profile instead of lurking like I have been. I'll briefly share my experience so far and then I have a few questions for you folks. So far it's been OK owning the Sierra. I love the truck's looks, comfort and the 6.2. I don't see myself doing much modification other than a level and tires, it looks amazing as is. The ride quality is not quite what I expected though. I had the dealer swap the 22s out for 20s for that reason (plus I just didn't think the 22s were fitting for a pickup). That helped a little. However, my two main complaints are the transmission and vibrations at cruising. Which brings me to my questions: 1. What could fix these vibrations? Symptoms: Far as I can tell, only happens once the truck has warmed up a little. Also only happens under throttle (usually just light throttle), doesn't matter whether it's in V4 or V8 mode, happens intermittently for about a second or two at a time. I feel it most in the steering wheel (it's significant enough to make an hour drive on the highway borderline unbearable), and RPMs jump a little when it occurs. Some research indicates there was a TSB for this issue being related to the transmission, but as far as I could find, it was only on 2015-2016 models. Is there an updated one for 2017? 2. The transmission seems to have some odd shift points and it hunts for gears a LOT. The 1-2 shift is sometimes jarring enough to feel like the dang thing is about to drop out under the truck. Some cars just shift hard, is that what you guys experience too, or am I just lucky? 3. My front fender measures 4" lower than my rear fender (measured from ground through center of wheel to fender). Most I'm seeing on here is people have a 2-3" difference. Is that normal? I was hoping the 1.5" leveling kit from suspensionmaxx would be enough to get rid of most of the rake (i'm fine with a little rake), and fit 33s. Am I wrong? 4. What's y'alls favorite product to clean the bed and get it back to that new fresh black look? Looking forward to learning more about this gorgeous truck, and wish me luck on the vibrations -- I'm taking it to the dealer this Friday! Cheers SS2Sierra
