  1. your tie rod nut looks like it's falling off lol
  2. it's fine, did the same to my last 2500. I had to cut part of the bolt head flat to get it in without removing the bed, just saved time.
  3. probably would be fine with 500cca
  4. Tried to take my front bilseteins off to properly lift the truck with a spindle (2wd) and when I was removing the nut after compressing the spring the shaft inside broke and made a giant hydraulic fluid mess on my floor and caused me to get stuck buying an overpriced stock strut local since nobody has anything around me and bilsteins are on some national shortage
  5. 2015 2wd Sierra Currently I have the front lifted with a spacer+bilsteins on highest setting so of course it is very stiff up front. Trying to figure out the correct way to return to factory geometry up front so I can add coil overs and keep my ride quality. Truck right now is lifted 3.8ish inches and I would like to keep it there. Is there any downsides to a spindle lift, without cv angles to worry about. https://www.americantrucks.com/chevy-max-trac-3in-lift-spindles-extended-brake-lines-0717-2wd.html or is there no way around moving the lower control arm mounting point to fully fix ride quality? https://zoneoffroad.com/products/45-in-lift-kit-2014-2018-chevygmc-silveradosierra-1500-rwd
  6. world record dyno numbers you got yourself a factory freak my friend
  7. yes there is prob 1/2" of thread above it
  8. if you have 4 cyl mode turned off there is no check engine lights
  9. I doubt any cold air intake does anything to begin with
  10. my vac pump was dying is why I deleted it, since I have 4 cyl mode turned off anyway and deleting it is 10 bucks/the brakes feel better without it. If you intake is for the stock tb you would at least need a new coupler since this one is bigger I imagine
  11. the 6.2 throttle body is cheap on amazon, I bought it and air raid 200-911 to connect it to the stock air box I just used 3/8 heater line to connect the intake to the brake booster since I deleted my vac pump. You can just do that and run it wherever and not buy the pcv line
  12. sorry meant the stock 5.3 tube wont fit the 6.2 tb local tuner
  13. didnt relearn since truck is already tuned, the intake tube wont fit the size and angle of the tb are different, I just bought the air raid tube for the 6.2 It comes with the valve cover fittings. You can just use 3/8" vac line for the crank case one, or buy the actual fitting. I didnt even try to mess with the foam just slapped intake on
  14. I have 3.8ish inches lift in the front and only a 1.5" block in the rear and 34s clear, I would run 35s on a 4.5" 100%
  15. just curious how the ride is, currently have bilsteins cranked up and not a fan, just looking for 3.5ish of lift. 2wd truck with aftermarket uppers already. Just trying to justify the extra cost to go to the kings for almost double the price https://www.4wheelparts.com/p/king-shocks-2-5-oem-performance-series-front-remote-reservoir-coilover-shock-absorber-25001-148/_/R-FBJG-25001-148 https://www.americantrucks.com/eibach-silverado1500-pro-truck-front-coil-overs-for-175-to-4-inch-lift-e86-23-032-01-20.html
  16. I imagine an aftermarket upper with basically stock ride height would ruin your ball joint angle since theyre angled for a suspension that is higher
  17. felt the same in my single cab with 5100s and my conclusion was ditching 20" wheels and now the truck rides better than ever
