Hey everyone. I have a 2016 Sierra Denali. A while back I opted to do away with the magnaride struts and installed BIlstein 6112s in the front with Cognito UCAs and BIlstein 5100s in the rear, also added Xineering bypass kit to clear the Magnaride errors. I had an issue recently with the stop mount on the drivers side strut blowing out. I contacted BIlstein about it and the rep told me he thought he had been told that the distance between the LCA and where the strut mounts into the truck frame at the top on a magnaride equipped Denali is shorter than a normal Sierra and that it was possible that the strut was too compressed, causing it to push through the top mount. Has anyone ever heard this or experienced this issue? I can’t find anything mentioned about it anywhere. I’m taking the truck in next week to get it fixed but if it’s going to just happen again I am wondering if I need to get different struts all together.
Our 2015 Yukon Denali we just bought with 101k miles on it, it rides a little rough. We have driven a tahoe before and it hasn't felt this bad. After doing some research I am finding out the magnetic ride suspension goes bad pretty quickly and becomes a rough ride. I saw somewhere that some people were removing the magnetic ride suspension on denalis and replacing it with the regular suspension thats on the lower trims of yukons and tahoes. Has anyone here done this? If so any issues caused by doing this? Also if anyone has done this, I would be interested in finding out exactly what parts are the best to swap to the regular suspension (part numbers etc.), as there are many different part numbers for the same shocks on gm's parts website, wouldn't know exactly what to start with when it comes to converting the magnetic ride back to standard. Thanks.
I have a 2017 Sierra Denali Ultimate 4x4 6.2 that I am trying to install a 7" lift kit on. I purchased the 7" kit from Rough Country and I was aware that I would need to change my upper and lower control arms from stamped steel to aluminum in order to get the kit to fit properly. The issue that I am having now is that after placing the order with my local dealer, the parts arrived and we discovered that gm had sent them stamped steel replacements instead of aluminum. The manager of the parts department tried to look into it and he could not get the correct part number for the aluminum arms. It seems that I have to get a VIN off of a truck that originally came with aluminum arms in order for them to attempt to look up the correct parts. Can anybody here with a denali with original aluminum control arms provide me with the last 8 of the vin to try to get these parts? or can someone with more knowledge than the guy at the parts counter help me look these up? It seemed like the manager at the dealer I went to wasnt interested in actually finding them.
