  1. I have a 2015 Silverado with the G80. Can anyone shed some light on this? Situation: The rear wheels slip and eventually the G80 pawls spring out to engage the lock. You proceed through your "sticky situation" and at some point drive onto a grippable surface. Do you have to stop the vehicle, or even reverse a little, in order to release those pawls from the notch that they spring into? Just seems like it would stay engaged as long as your wheels keep rotating.
  2. I have a G80 that went bye bye last week. This truck only sees highways and paved roads. Looking at the prices of a new or even used G80 carrier is ridiculous. It is possibly to just swap out the G80 carrier and install an open rear end?
  3. Kind of stupid but I was pulling forward in the driveway with some snow and I was expecting the G80 locker to clunk in and then have both wheels spin at the same speed. Just my luck though there was a continous banging instead. Traction control was off and so was stabilitrack. You can hear it pretty good in the video, was it at the sweet spot of 100ish rpms and that's why it was locking and unlocking?? Rear end5.mp4
  4. I have recently purchased a 2018 silverado custom 2wd and it has the RPO code (GU6) rear end. I am trying to find information or aquiring and installing a RPO code (g80) eaton automatic locking rear dif. I know that g80 is a standard on some trim packages and mine did not come with it from what i can tell based on glove compartment codes. I cannot seem to find one for sale anywhere or information or videos of someone swapping them out or even having the same question as me. I have also considered a torsen style differential as well but again i do not know enough to start searching for one to buy. Any information on this topic is greatly appreciated
  5. I have a 2003 Silverado LS extended cab that only burns iu from one wheel, I've done research and found out it's an open diffential since I do not have G80 in my Glove box. While doing research I found out to burnout two wheels I need to buy a G80 Eaton differential lock or a Detroit tru trac. I see people saying tru trac is better. I have no knowlege about this. G80 or Tru Trac How much will it cost for the lock and to get it installed in California? Do I have to buy the lock or a whole new axle? will I be able to burnout with two tires with G80 and Tru Trac? I haven't tried burning out just assuming. It's burning one tire since there is no G80 in my glove box i want to take this truck to truck invasion to burnout so will it also be able to drift with either the trutrac or g80?
  6. Does anyone know where I can buy fender flares for a 2005 GMC Sierra stepside? I cannot find anything at all? I can find fender flares for older trucks, fords, rangers, s10's, but not sierras!!! Stepside beds are forerunners to fleetside beds too!!!! They have been around longer!!!! I don't get why I can't find anything about Stepside bed fender flares! Please help!!!
  7. I put new spark plugs in my truck, and didn't know the torque specs for them. I have the L33, which is aluminum. I looked up the torque specs, and got the confused with a 5.7 vortec, which is cast iron. The torque specs for the 5.7 are 25ft-lbs, and the L33 is 13ft-lbs or in that area. You think I overtightened them? I put Bosch platinum 4's in. It isn't misfiring at the moment, but it had kind of a rough start this morning, but it's a little cold out, like 40's. I'm just learning and preparing myself for when I screwed myself for the stupid torque specs.
  8. Need a good shop around The Woodlands TX to rebuild rear differential in the step sons truck. He said its making a popping noise of some kind. If anyone knows of a top notch mechanic in that area, I would appreciate your help. thanks
  9. When I bought my truck from a friend who swore it Didn't have a locker anyway I figured it died a long time ago so I put a 1000 miles on it with not problems or locker (I work on a farm so lots of off-road use...doing donuts in the felds) then bam locks on the on ramp in a bad rain storm and it crab walked for about 5 miles Has this happened to anyone after a series of super scientific tests it works like new I don't understand what could cause this
  10. Got bigger tires on my 2014 Sierra z71and I'm wondering if my g80 locker is working. I only lightly tapped the grass since its my yard. I only pressed it until it felt like it hooked
  11. i broke my right rear axle saturday afternoon pulling out of a store now i was giving it some gas but not thrashing on it this is the second axle ive broke both in the same place the first i was simply pulling off from a light in traffic. ive been told its from making too much power to the right rear but if thats the case why don't ther D-MAX owners have issues everyday? truck has 6.0 4.10 g80 on 35x13x22r with nitto m/t's any help would be useful
