  1. Nice! I'm still a fan of the Lt1. I've had my 96 trans am for the past 16 yrs. It's nowhere near what yours is/was power wise. I just recently built a 355 with an LE2 heads/cam for it with a 24x conversion. I'm actually taking it to get tuned next week. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

  3. Not sure if my truck had the same issue as yours but I had a popping/creaking noise develope on my 17 after 30k miles. I had a 2.25" level the entire time. Dealer ended up replacing the entire steering rack under warranty. Also noticed a sticker I never saw on the original rack and the paperwork said they updated the software. I'm guessing the new electric power steering has software that can be updated. I could definitely tell that the steering felt tighter when I got the truck back. The popping/creaking noise stayed gone for 4k miles and I recently installed a 7" lift. 1500 miles later and still no noise. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Shudder/Vibration Issue

    An aftermarket tune is pretty much the only way to make the 8 speed act like it should. I was actually pretty happy with the last flush I had and the new fluid. It wasn't perfect but it was pretty damn good. Then I tuned it and it's so much better. 2016 and under you can tune the 8 speed trans. 2017 and up the tcm is locked. You can have the tcm unlocked by sending it into hp tuners and paying the fee. Then have the motor and trans tuned with hp tuners. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. 2014+ Suspension Lifts

    Haven't had them rub offroad. I dont do any harcore off roading. Just occasional trip to the deer lease. Theres some pretty rough/rocky trails that I didn't have any issues with. I think the ride quality is pretty good. I have Bilstein 5100s on all 4 corners. Way better than the stock Ranchos that were on it. Readylift says that this lift will widen track width less than 1/2 an inch. Other lifts push it out about 1.5". That's one of the main reasons I picked this kit. Coilovers would be the best choice for ride quality, but they do cost more. I know CST makes a really great lift that doesn't widen track width. Fabtechs Gen 2 kit doesn't widen track width either. CST also has an option to add coilovers. Only reason I didn't go with that kit is because it's only a 4.5" lift. CST says you can get up to 5.5" with the coilovers. I just couldn't justify the amount of work it would be to install that lift and only gain a couple more inches over my leveled setup. So I went with a 7" and I'm extremely happy I did.

    I have 20x10 -19 hostile rage h113 with a 7" readylift lift and 35s. I had to trim the lower plastic on the air dam but other than that no rubbing. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. My 17 had a leak a few times. Replaced the shark fin antenna twice. The 2nd time I put a bead of clear silicone around it to make sure it wouldn't leak again. It leaked again anyway. This time I put a water hose on the truck to find the leak myself. Turns out it was the sunroof seal leaking. Dealer replaced the sunroof seal and haven't had a problem since.

  8. https://www.pelican.com/us/en/product/phone-and-tablet-cases/samsung-case/protector/c50000 C50005-001A-BKBK Pelican Protector. I got mine on Amazon. Its actually cheaper now at $29.56. It doesn't sit perfectly flat on the charger because of the size of the phone/case. Only charges if the top of the phone is facing the dash because of the way it sits. Just wanted you to be aware incase you buy the case and then say it doesn't fit perfectly. Here's some pics. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. JL center console sub

    I dont have a JL box but I did get an aftermarket box off Ebay that replaces the factory Bose sub in the console with an 8" sub. I removed my 10" sub box that I had under my rear seat so I could reinstall my underseat storage box. The 8" in the center console sounds so much better than the 10" under the rear seat. It doesn't rattle and just sounds clean. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. My truck is similar to your setup. 17 CC 4x4 with a 7" and 35s. Mine is a 6.2 with 3.23s though. With that toy hauler at 9000 lbs are you using a weight distribution hitch? If so what's your setup? I'm looking at a 7500 lb travel trailer and looking for more info. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. What rock lights did you go with? I'm thinking about ordering some. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks. Readylift 7 inch lift, with bilstein 5100s front and rear, 20x10-19 Hostile Rage H113 wheels, 35x12.50 Nitto Ridge Grapplers. I also just installed a zone add a leaf to the rear because the front was an inch higher than the rear. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. Bilstein shocks thread

    I would. Definitely rode better than the stock Ranchos Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. Bilstein shocks thread

    My co worker has a 15 and his truck has cast steel ucas. You probably have the same. You can pretty much do either. 2.25" lift or 2.35". They'll look the same. Bilstein doesn't reccomend using any spacers with the 5100s. I ran them at stock height with the spacers hoping for the best ride. I also knew I didn't want to compress them again to change the height when I added my actual lift. I dont have experience using them any other way so I can't tell you that it would ride any worse running them at the highest setting with a small spacer. I imagine that it would be a little harsher because you're pre-loading the spring to achieve the majority of the lift. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. Bilstein shocks thread

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the factory rear block is 1.25" so the 3" block netted me 1.75" lift. If you use the front 5100s at the highest setting you should be at 1.85" lift. Add a 1/2" spacer that will put you at 2.35". Keep in mind that the spacer thickness is not 1 to 1. It's more like 2 to 1. So a 1/2" spacer is actually a 1/4" spacer. If you use an actual spacer that's 1/2" thick you'll gain 1" putting you at a total of 2.85" lift. I didn't catch what the year of your truck was but if it has stamped steel ucas you'll probably need aftermarket ucas if you go that high. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
