  1. I’m new here. First post so forgive me if it’s in the wrong thread. I’ve got a 2019 Silverado 2500 W/T which is basically my daily driver, and the first HD truck I’ve owned. The recommended tire pressure is an insane 60psi front, and 80psi in the back (80 being the max for the tire). I understand the need for this when towing/hauling, but with the HD suspension on top of that, it makes for a pretty rough ride. My question is how much can I soften up the tires when driving with no load, without causing any handling problems, or any other potential unknown issues from lowering the tire pressure? Any help appreciated. Thanks
  2. I’ve got a question for the group. Someone else has probably already posted so if there’s a thread someone can direct me to, that would be great as well. I installed a 2” motofab leveling kit with 285/55R20 Toyo Open Country LT tires. I’ve had an alignment done and even checked again. Something with the handling of the truck just doesn’t seem right. It almost feels like the steering is over compensating to a small degree or just a little sloppy for a new truck at speeds above 60 or 70 mph. Is there something else that should be checked besides the alignment or corrected?
  3. Hey guys, I have a 2006 Suburban LT with a 6" lift installed and 295/70R17 tires. We bought several years ago with the lift installed. It's a nice truck but it is a chore to drive. It doesn't handle very well and we have to take turns on the slow side since it leans alot. The factory sway bars are connected.. When there are bumps in the road it seems like the tires bounce make us the drivers have to make corrections to keep it on the road. Not sure what to call it but when the road has been traveled a great deal and the asphalt has tire ruts, but it seems like the road steers the truck and there is an awful lot of continual steering correction to keep it going straight. I am comparing the drivability to our cars. I know the lift isn't a great lift. Who ever lifted it did it for cosmetics not for off roading. I recently had new tires installed with an alignment done with some repair work so I know everything is in order. The truck drives great cruzing down the highway or town driving but if there are hard bumps or asphalt ruts the truck isn't enjoyable to drive. Recently I was thinking about upgrading the front and rear sway bars to improve driving while turning to reduce the truck leaning. Would better shocks help keep the tires on the road when driving over hard bumps. For example railroad tracks we better slow down compared to the car. Some of the roads are in need of repair out where we live and hitting pot holes better have both hands on the steering wheel. In the car no problem. I sure would like to improve the road handling in the truck. Any suggestions would be nice
  4. First snow here in CT, I have to go out later so I will be able to see how my truck handles. Anyone in a more snow covered state, how do they handle in the snow compared to other trucks?
