So are these 2lt z71 suppose to have like a “racing” Type steering or something? My 2017 Silverado steering is a little stiffer than normal and it is super sensitive. One thing that is driving me crazy is that it does not want to go straight on its own. I don’t think it’s an alignment issue because this is different than from when the alignment is off. It’s kind of hard for me to explain but I keep zig zagging in my lane because my truck just doesn’t want to go straight on it’s own. And it’s not like it’s pulling, it’s more like there’s no assist of keeping the truck rolling smoothly. If this makes sense..
Ok thanks for the info. Just another quick question, I feel like my truck does not have the “V8” torque like it should. It lags and sometimes delay acceleration. I test drove another Silverado with 5.3L V8 and it was super strong with torque. Could I have a leak somewhere or clogged/blockage somewhere? Or is it just the lag of the AFM?
Yeah dealership lowered it to 35psi but it is still jumping. Did you ever get it resolved? If so, how? I’m taking it to Chevy tomorrow and hopefully they can do a better job than Lincoln, but if they can’t either then I would like to know what other things I can do to get it fixed. I would not want to be driving it like this during winter.
Should I even go get a second opinion from Chevy themselves or do you think it’ll just be a waste of time since there is no leak on the ranchos. Rear end is jumping and according to Chevy service consultant that is not normal and shouldn’t be happening. What the hell do I do at this point?
Tire pressure was at 45 when I first brought it in. That was the first thing they tried. Lowered it to 33-35 and still have the issue. I mean it’s probably not as bad as it is on 45psi but still having the problem. As for the previous owner, I’m not too sure. Maybe that is something I should’ve asked before buying.. And at this point I might as well keep the extended warranty because for some reason I feel like I’m gonna have some transmission/engine problems real soon Because now I am noticing a “clunk” when decelerating in low gears and coming to a stop. I’m starting to regret this purchase. $32k with issues. I should’ve just gotten a tundra..
So dealership(Lincoln) said they couldn’t find anything wrong. Everything is in spec and no leak on the shocks. Service tec told me that’s just how the Z71 suspensions are. It’s probably just a characteristic of the Z71 shocks. I said okay, let me test drive another Z71 and see if it’ll have the same problem. So I test drove another similar truck with the service tec in with me and no issues at all. That was a clear reason/sign that there is clearly something wrong with my truck. It’s not the Z71 shocks. So at the end of all this, they pretty much said sorry we can’t fix it, nothing broken. Go to Chevy. I also called Chevy and spoke with a service consultant. Explained to him what I am experiencing and he said no, your truck should not be jumping to the side when going over bumps or potholes. So now I’m going to take it to Chevy and hope they can find the problem. Oh and they mentioned that it can because of my 22inch rims/tires that is causing it to jump. Is that true?
