Looking for what else you guys recommend to replace. I Noticed one of my tie rod grease boots was busted, planning to replace both inner and outer tie rods, sway bay end link, sway bar bushings. Anything else while I’m under there and have to get an alignment? Mileage is at 78,000 miles. Looking to use MOOG parts. Running 33’s so if anyone else has upgraded to something beefier let me know!
@Capt Bob @rav3 I checked that ground and it’s all clear of insulation. I checked and cleaned up all the chassis grounds including both negative battery cable grounds. I ended up replacing my starter and that made it start normally BUT I’ve driven it twice now and both times the gauges went wonky and got service messages for about 45 seconds one time each drive and then doesn’t happen again. My battery is 4yrs old so I’m thinking I’ll just replace it also. Also I read some old posts about ECM getting some smoked circuits on it and causing weird issues. Read anything on that before?
Past couple weeks gauges have been going crazy and giving error messages for service trailer brake, service 4WD. Truck drives fine when this is going on radio and lights still work and had never cut off on me when driving. Then last weekend and today it wouldn’t start at all, just acted completely dead with no turn over or clicking but battery was at 12.4v. Took battery to AutoZone Twice now and their tool said battery/alternator are good. I checked the grounds and cleaned the 4 on the frame. They looked fine but wire brushed them anyway. Anyone else had this issue? Wondering if starter or ignition switch?
What part numbers are you guys getting for the injectors? The ones that came out of my truck are 12668390, dealership said new replacement part was 12684125, but then looks like 12698484 is the newest part. I ordered 12698484 from GM wholesale dealer, box says 12698484 but the injector is stamped 12681212. Seems like a lot of conflicting info on this fuel injector issue.. 12681212 (that I just got in today) is grouped with 12668390 (that came out of my truck) under the latest replacement number so I'm guessing I can use these. Everywhere is back ordered so I guess I'm lucky I even got these
Do you have a picture of either set up? Trying to get a reference of wheel size with a 285/60. I'm with you on 295/60 vs 305/55 route and why I'm trying to see what other people have done. I think the 305/55 may be too small of an OD. I'd really prefer not to run a wheel spacer, enough people are hesitant to make me not want to even go down that road.
What tire setups are people running with Bilstein 5100's and Body lift? Been searching around and havent found too much luck. Tire options on stock 18" wheels (+24mm offset I believe) are pretty much: 275/70, 285/70 or 295/70. Thinking the 295/70 may be too much tire and rub sway bar. Wheel liner will be zip tied. Current setup: Bilstein 5100 at full height 1.5" Zone body lift
Did you paint the chrome headlight trim or get the headlight trim pieces from amazon that just stick on over the chrome? Was looking at getting these color matched but wasnt sure how well they would really fit?
What style of bowtie is everyone using to color match their grille bowtie? I would like to have the insert painted and have the chrome trim. But online sites never really clearly state how the bowtie comes (with chrome surround, if you have to drill out the gold, full replacement) and if its plastic or billet. Looking for a part number for a powder coated billet insert with or without the chrome trim included.
EDIT : Planning on purchasing a painted grille for my 15 and swapping the insert with my current Z71 fins insert this does not work as the Z71 grille inserts and LT/LTZ honeycomb inserts are not interchangeable. Looking to trade my Z71 grille for a painted grille, can be any color. Prefer to have the black inserts.
What is everyone getting for charging times on these and the hardwire usb connection straight to your phone if you checked. I have the Samsung Galaxy s7 and when it was a 8% it said it would take over 5 hours to fully charge... Read the same on the wireless pad and usb connections to the phone (in the console and on the dash connections)
I think you saw my previous post with the vinyl squares? If not, its back a couple pages. Was never able to find a direct match, a couple I found were exact looking head on but when you moved the side it was way off. The depth of this color is extremely unique that it doesn't seem like a vinyl could duplicate it. From my understanding its the same with powdercoating, they don't use automotive paint codes so you're back to square 1 with looking for something you can "deal with" unless you just take it to a paint shop and get them to spray X pieces.
