  1. 2022 LTD LT has halogen taillights. If I replace, will factory LED taillights work on my truck without re-programing? Thank you.
  2. I think my 2022 LTD LT factory LED headlights seem to be a little dark, especially compared to prior my 2019 WT with aftermarket LED headlight bulbs. Is it possible to replace the factory LED headlight bulbs with aftermarket LED bulbs?
  3. My 2022 LTD was sprayed with a bedliner from the dealer except for the tailgate (not multipro). Now, I want to spray the plastic cover panel of the tailgate by myself but I also read spraying tailgate is not recommended without clear explanation (Is that why it came with the bed liner on the bed only?). If this is not true, can I just unscrew all the screws to take out the plastic cover panel so that I can spray it then put it back? I am a little worried some screws are holding another parts inside of the tailgate and unscrewing them may cause any headache. Another question is what is the max weight we can put on our fancy(?) aluminum tailgate. I googled it but there is no clear answer. Some say 375 lbs but seem to be old posts. Also read some tailgates were damaged after loading snowmobiles or ATVs. Thanks.
  4. Hi, 2022 LTD LT here. I have noticed the rear window sometimes explodes when using a remote start with the rear defroster on especially in winter. Is this still going on or 2020~ models do not have this issue no more? Pretty scary...
  5. Hi, 2022 LTD LT here. I am hearing a noise when the windshield wipers stops right before changing a sweeping direction, which is very annoying. Is this a sweep angle problem or wiper motor problem? I am sure it is not the wiper rubber blade issue. Can I fix it easily by myself or dealer? Thank you.
  6. Mine, 2022 LTD LT, does the same thing and this issue seems to be well known caused by leaf spring noise. Service Bulletin No: 19-NA-129. I complained of this to my dealer but they said "unable to duplicate", although I always hear the noise when rocking my truck side to side. Please refer to the links for the details. Pretty disappointing 47K truck has noise on every bump.
  7. If no, what is the difference between LTD and regular?
  8. My 2019 4.3L with 6-speed transmission was a total loss last week. I need a new (Custom trim). Now only see 2.7T paired with 8-speed transmission. As far as I know, GM 8-speed transmission has been infamous, facing class action lawsuit. Is this only affecting to ~2019 model year or current model too? 2.7T also reliable? Thank you.
  9. FYI, I had to return the lights to my dealer because it requires programing for my WT after installation (a program code on the instruction in the box as well). Dealer said $130~140s for programing. I think paying ~$300 (part $155 + $130~140 for programing) is not worth for this. Thank you.
  10. How bright are they? Bright enough to find something on the bed at night or should I look for another aftermarket one?
  11. Thank you for the answer. Does it require dealer programing to activate after the installation? Or just good to go…
  12. 2019 WT crew cab short box. I want to install this cargo light kit but cannot find any installation instruction or video for 2019~. I found some in YouTube for 2015 (installed under the bedrails) but not 2019~. Is it the same? As per GM website, it is $155 (part No 84659238 ) which is only for one unit or a pair? Do I have to buy any wiring harness too? If anyone already installed this, please let me know. Thank you.
  13. 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 seat of our Silverado? Any other neck brace/gear (even football/dirt bike gears) that can prevent hyperextension of the neck when rear-ended?
  14. 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 look very busy many things blocking the nuts. Also. how did you remove the plastic parts holding wires sitting on the nuts (just pop them up?)? Any tips to do remove and retighten the top 3 nuts easily? Do I have to remove the wheel liners? 2. Did you loosen the sway bar link to make a little bit more play before taking out the shocks? or can I just skip this part? 3. Using spring compressors are most worrisome. If I use them correctly, is it going to be safe? Any tips? (I don't have 2nd car to bring them to a local mechanic) 4. the instruction on Bilstein website says "OEM Spring Seat (Resting on Supplied Bilstein Spring Seat Adapter)" This means the OEM spring seat has to be put on top of supplied Bilstein spring seat adapter? Stupid question but want to make sure. 5. Did you guys use the supplied Bilstein flange lock nuts (1 for top and 2 to the bottom) or just the OEM flange lock nuts? From my research, the Bilstein flange lock nuts sometimes give noise and also has less torque spec at 19 ib/ft than original 37 lb/ft. I want to use the OEM nuts with 37 lb/ft torque. Which way should I go? 6. Is alignment optional/recommended or must to be done after installation? If my truck drives well, can I skip? Thank you.
