  1. Anyone running Cognito suspension lifts?
  2. Hello all, I have a base 2019 Sierra 5.3 4x4 and bought the front / rear shocks and rear blocks of a AT4 owner who upgraded his suspension Does anyone know if it's necessary to replace the CV axle when installing the 2" lift? Thanks .
  3. So my 05 Silverado developed a slight rubbing noise from in the front end that gets worse when I turn left and better when I turn right. Also, twice in the last week or two while turning left in 4wd there has been a loud popping noise with a little bit of a buck that I tentatively diagnosed as a binding CV joint. The axles look ok, no torn boots or anything, but they're old and both front hubs are brand new. I ordered a pair of new axles for the front but now I'm questioning things. Another symptom is that sometimes when I'm stopped at a stoplight and I put it in 4wd, as I pull away there will be a metal on metal clicking noise and the truck acts like it's in 2wd until the clicking stops. Once the clicking stops, 4wd works normally. Two questions: 1) Do you guys agree that it seems like it's the axles or do you have other ideas? 2) Bad 4wd actuator? Could the binding CV have caused that?
  4. I'm new here and I've been trying to diagnose my '14 Sierra issue for a while. It sounds just like a blown drivers side front strut when I hit bumps at low speeds, almost like a "plop" sound. If I'm on a washboard road it almost sounds like a rattle on the inside. I took to the dealership roughly a year ago and they confirmed I had a bad strut and replaced, but now it's back. Recently, I put a 2.5" RC leveling kit and 33" BFG's on it and within a week I began hearing the exact same noise as before with strut but there is no fluid visible. I crawled underneath and checked everything involved with lift. I happened to grab the CV axle and it has both torsional and tensional slop. My Question: What is an acceptable amount of torsional and tensional play or slop in a CV joint on these trucks? My truck currently has roughly .0625"-.125" play in both directions. Also, my CV shaft has less than .0625" clearance from the bolt head on lower strut. Is that normal?
  5. I have a 2002 GMC Yukon XL 1500 4x4. it has 185k miles. I need to get a few more miles out of it because i am on road away from my garage. I noticed a metalic clicking that seemed to be coming from the front drivers side. I assumed the CV Axle was toast. after looking at it, the CV axle seemed to be ok. however, the output flange on the drivers side has noticeable movement. (when I grab the inner part of the cv axle and check for play or movement, the only movement comes from the output flange) My question is this. Can I disassemble the cv axle leaving the outer cv axle in the wheel, (I understand this is what hold the wheel together) Are the bearings on the outer part of the cv axle just for the cv axle? Are there are still wheel bearings on the spindle? I know this is bad practice but i would like to know i can make it home and fix it correctly when i get there.(about 1000 miles away) Or is all this unnecessary and would it be ok to drive this distance with the (i think its called) carrier bearing failing. The green arrow on the picture is where the play is at.
