  1. I have a 2019 1500 Crew Cab bench seat and need to take 5 passengers for a long trip frequently. However, I am concerned that the headrest for the rear middle seat is too short to be properly positioned and the front middle seat does not have a headrest at all (F-150 has it!!!). I suffered from whiplash pretty badly when rear-ended a few years ago. Any idea to solve this issue? Is there any place to install GM headrest guide/bracket and headrest for the front middle seat (I already asked my dealer but they couldn't)? Does any other headrest of the different cars/trucks fit to the rear middle s
  2. My shocks (24-293297) will arrive soon. The dealer says they don't install aftermarket parts because of a warranty issue. Local shops ask $400~1000 for installation only. I watched YouTube and decided to do it by myself. I need to rent spring compressors, but also have a few questions. Mine is 2019 1500 WT crew cab 4x4 short box (I will keep the stock height). 1. How did you remove the top 3 nuts? It seems that there is not enough space to put a wrench/socket attached to a socket wrench/even torque wrench later. I took a loot at the engine bay to approach from the top but they lo
  3. Thank you. I could have trimmed and tucked the edges to make it look better, but was okay with this look. Very nice texture and comfortable cushion. Just took 3 hours...
  4. This is another cheap way $17. I am pretty happy with it.
  5. I have 2019 Crew Cab WT 4x4. Mine (IOR) does exactly same thing plus frozen screen and sudden ramping to the max volume. To enjoy music/listen to radio while driving, sometimes I have to park and wait for 15~20 minutes with engine off. This is my first Chevy... I had never had this kind issue for the past 30 years with other cars/SUVs. Again, dealer already changed my radio right after 1st oil change, but the same issue has occurred likely once a week. Dealer does not know what the cause is. I don't understand why Chevy cannot figure it out what is going on, though tons of people experience "E
  6. Yes... What I heard is although IOR has an update feature, actually it cannot be updated. Sad...
  7. I have heard IOR cannot be updated, which sucks for my truck.
  8. I am looking for Bilstein front shocks (part#: 24-293297) that look like "out of stock/back order"... Although Bilstein is so papular, why is it so difficulty to buy them? Where can I buy them?
  9. I am using the factory interlocking mats without anchors for my 2019 1500 WT. Yes, x 100 better than others. No problems at all.
  10. Thank you for the good answers. So if I don't do any height adjustment which means remaining in a stock height while installing Bilstein 5100, I won't have warranty issues except for the front shocks themselves?
  11. Believe or not, I had a bad experience with changing shocks with lift kit. Make a long story short, I had to sell my 4-year-old Wrangler Unlimited because of death wobble 1 year after installation of new shocks with 2-inch lift. The local shop who installed them & even Jeep dealer could not find the cause of death wobble and asked for $$$$ to pursue it. Almost killed by my wife, had to drive a minivan for years until I purchased a 2019 1500 WT 4.3L crew cab short box. Then I have learned death wobble often occurs in solid axle vehicles, especially with lifted. Can changing front shocks in
  12. I have heard there is a notable improvement in riding quality after front/rear springs have been retuned by GM since 2020 model year (some auto reviewers say better than F150…). I know many replace stock shocks with aftermarkets (e.g. Bilstein… I also did it with 5100s rear only) to reduce bouncy riding. Just curious, if new retuned springs are good enough, it might be better to install them on 2019 rather than pursue aftermarket shocks/struts... Anyone tried or already replaced stock 2019 springs with 2020/2021s? Can anyone of 2020/2021 post your front/rear spring part#s for future reference?
  13. I have already installed Bilstein 5100 shocks in the rear. Yes, they made difference but I want a little more steady riding. Is riding quality with tuned suspension way better than 2019 with rear Bilstein 5100s. In the future, should I further install Bilstein in the front or replace 2019 front/rear springs with 2021? Kind of a stupid question but no clear way to check except for asking here for advices. Thank you.
