  1. Long time lurker on the forums and have read and used lots of advice from the site over the years. I appreciate all the contributors that help and explain things to those of us that are still learning. Hoping someone can assist or explain how to correct the issue I have with the install of my new rack and pinion. 2006 GMC Sierra crew cab 1500 SLE, 5.3 After installing a brand new rack and pinion (not rebuilt unit), my left rotor is at about 10-15deg angle facing out left and my right rotor is about 20 deg angle facing out to the right. So they look like this - \ / but not to that extreme. I did a front end rebuild on my pickup last week. I replaced upper control arms, lower control arms, stabilizer bar links, and shocks on both sides of the front end. After I completed all this, I reinstalled tires while waiting on my new rack and pinion to arrive. Everything looked normal as before. Received the new rack and pinion and outer tie rod ends a couple days ago and did the install following a detailed video as well as instructions someone posted on these forums. Only thing I did different was not drop the stabilizer bar as I noticed I could pull the bolts almost completely out and remove and reinstall the part without that step. I tied the steering wheel so it wouldn't move and I counted the turns of the outer ends, oddly they were both exactly 16 turns. I installed new outer ends with 16 turns on each side. When hooking back up the steering shaft to steering gear, I had to rotate the steering gear about 1/2 turn in order for the shaft to slide onto it. I had previously marked the shaft and old gear per instructions, but I'm guessing that is meaningless on a new install. Is this as simple that I need to adjust the outer ends to get them closer in to alignment? Which would mean the new unit is slightly different than the old one? In hindsight I wish I would have more closely compared the two and measured the full length, end to end. The new rack and pinion came with the inner tie rods already installed. I could pull it all back off and do the measurement, but hoping someone responds with the answer and I don't have to perform a complete removal and install again. I plan on taking to a shop for an alignment, especially with everything I have done, but I don't want to drive 30 miles with the tires that far out of whack. Additional question, the old unit has what appears to be just a connecting rod between the right and left boots, but the new unit didn't come with this. Is that of any significance or just different manufacture styles? From what I can tell, it appears to be on remanufactured units, but not on brand new ones. Maybe just part of the rebuild kit? It was kind of in the way to remove the ground strap from the old unit and I had to use open end wrench, but since it wasn't there on new unit, I was able to replace bolt with socket and ratchet. Thanks for any and all assistance.
  2. Just actually stumbled across this page while browsing coloradofans. Jeff from Dallas Texas, 2018 Colorado 4x4 LT, basically Stock as it's my daily. Also have a 2018 Camaro ZL1. I need some help, before I start looking at all of your trucks, mods, other cool stuff.. (copied this from coloradofans.com, also from a few subs on reddit..) Hi all, need some advice- Let me preface this with, I am not trying to get anyone in trouble nor an I trying to throw anyone under the bus. I just want my Colorado fixed. I appreciate anyones feedback as I explain the story. 2018 Colorado LT, 4x4, 30k miles.... About three weeks ago, I had an appointment at my local Chevrolet dealer, which is a very large dealer in the Dallas/Fort-Worth metroplex. The truck has a very weird sounding, only can be described as an intermittent, yet ANNOYING and LOUD squeaking/rubbing sound coming from what sounds like the front of the truck. I showed up to my appointment, and the service advisor and I went for a ride, and he said that he could barely hear the sound, but I was able to hear it as clear as day. He also pointed out that he heard it when we accelerated, and when we braked. Nothing when we were coasting, not using the brakes, etc. He told me that I would have to leave it with him for a few days, or get there early on a Saturday for his guys to take it in. I didn't have the ability to do that at the time, so I told him I would reach back out in about a week or so. Fast forward a week - I was to be traveling so I was going to leave the truck prior to leaving the DFW airport. I ran some errands in the morning, and after getting the truck up to operating temperature, It is not making the sound, at all. Unfortunately I did not have the time to deal with this at the time so I went back to my house, and hopped a ride to the airport. Once I got back, and started my routine I noticed that the noise is still back and I can still hear it as loud as day. I made an appointment for 8:15 AM on last Tuesday. I showed up at 7:30 and they got me checked in. We took it for a ride around the lot, and the service advisor heard the noise. He got me right in. the shuttle took me to work. About three hours later he called me and he said - and please bear with me, I am no mechanic and my terminology may be off - "There was a seal in the transfer casing that was rotted..we fixed it, blah blah..and now it is not making the noise, OH, and you need an oil change. Want that while you're here?". Hopped an uber back to the dealer on my lunch and drove back to the office. Everything seemed fine. I got out of work around 5pm that day and went to the grocery store, sure enough, the noise is still there, and louder than ever. I am getting frustrated at this point. I reviewed the work order only to find out that it mentions nothing about fixing anything, only that the tech could not duplicate the issue I described. At this point, I am very hesitant to go back to that dealership, so I reach out to some other local enthusiasts for a referral, and I make contact with someone who works at a dealership about 30minutes south of where I live. I was to stop by Saturday morning, and ask for his buddy the service advisor. No problem at all. I stopped in right on time, met with the advisor, we took it for a ride around the lot. Sure enough, there it is! The noise on the stop, and on the go! He heard it, I heard it. But he told me that they won't get to it until Monday because the suspension, front end guys, etc, won't be in. I say OK, Whatever it takes. I also say, hey since I am new to town and need my registration switched, can you guys please do a safety inspection? He says yeah no problem. Another $35 uber back to my apartment. Today I get a call. And now, I am being told that the noise I am hearing is the noise of air going into the engine, and it's louder because I have a K&N Blackwing Cold Air Intake system. Which makes absolutely zero sense, since the noise only happens on the stop and go, and it's also a grinding/rubbing/squeaking noise. However, at this point.. I am not arguing. Because I have a short temper and I really don't want to be mean right now. You catch more bees with honey than vinegar. I just picked it up, and it's still making the same noise. The intake is not causing the issue.. and I don't have the stock one as I just moved here. I'm not a mechanic, but that's the stupidest **** I've ever heard. I have had intakes on all of my cars. There's one on my 2018 ZL1 camaro, no noises like that. I had them on my 2016 SS, 2015 C7, etc.. Never had any issues. The only COMMON issue here is that much like in the past like I've dealt with Pontiac back in 2009, the dealership is using any kind of excuse to not have to do any work at all. (Example - in 2010, broken ball joint on my 2009 g8 gt - they blamed it on my roto-fab engine covers hitting the hood, when in fact, it was a MAJOR TSB..) So a couple of things. 1) Where in DFW can I go to get this fixed 2) Should I even bother calling the GM customer care number.. because I am SERIOUSLY SICK OF "NO RENTALS BEING AVAILABLE" and having to pay for an uber. It's going to cost me $36 to get to the dealer tomorrow to pick the truck up. 3) Any other advise. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum but I have been doing my research on the new generation of gm half ton trucks. Long story short, I was in a very bad car accident back in December, I came out of a small acura tsx 6 speed (5 star crash safety rating) which is the reason I'm alive. Ive been looking pretty consistently at 2013+ rams, and the 2014+ gmc sierras and chevy silverados. I really like the styling of the new sierras and silverados but I have been reading threads regarding lots of issues that they seem to be plagued by. I wanted to see if anyone can voice a long term perspective on the 14's. From what I've been reading it looks like theres a lot of lemons out there. As far as configurations, I'd want to have 4wd, the 5.3 power plant and a crew/quad cab option. I would mainly be using the truck to commute to and from school. I'm 19 and go to school full time with two jobs on the side, needless to say I don't make enough money to be fixing a lemon if I get stuck with one. I need a truck that can last me at least 5-8 years thats safe and somewhat decent on gas. Thank you -Nick
  4. So I purchased a 98 sierra 1500. Drove it around for a few days before I realized the front speakers in the door didn't have any sound. So, i did what any other sane man would do, and replaced the speakers. Theres still no sound. The stereo was already replaced with the duel din out of my previous truck. So it's not that. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only thing left to replace would be the wiring correct?
  5. New In Box GM OEM performance exhaust (Corsa) for 5.3 L CCSB or EC standard bed. Part number 23442234 mandrel bent 3 inch piping. All bolt on and instructions included. Original box.

  6. What's up guys, I'm Shaun. I recently purchased a 2015 silverado after much debate and have been scouring the forums for information. I finally decided to register and be a part of the community. I guess my general goal for my truck is a fullsize overlander. This will take years to complete due to pocket change being low, but the goal is in place. I guess about me is next. I reside currently at fort bragg North Carolina. I'm a disabled veteran just making my way through life although I'm Originally from New Hampshire. Hopefully I can bring ya'll a fun build once it starts to really get rolling. Thanks for your time!

  8. What's going on GM truck forum? I'm new here and I'm from Atl, GA. Bought a 2014 Sierra All-Terrain last year and had to make a few changes to it already....

  9. I’ve been on a lot of forums, but I think I’m new to this one, LOL. Just mostly tinkering and flipping cars.
  10. I recently bought a brand new 2018 GMC Sierra Elevation SLE. After having it for a few days and putting on 500 km, I decided to check the fluid levels. I noticed that the oil was on the lower side, meaning, it almost showed that there was minimal oil in the engine. I find this strange, seeing as normally you see the oil bubble on the dip stick between the 2 indicators. In my case, there was no proof of an oil bubble. It seems very faint and thin-looking on the dip stick. Just curious if this is how the new GMC's are, or am I just running on seriously low oil?
  11. Hello my name is Adrian I'm new to this site. I'm currently looking for a Black 2014 silverado LT Double Cab with a 5.3L V8, 4x4 with a All-star Package. So far out the door I was able to haggle down to $34,800 out the door price but asking if I can go lower or if anyone has techniques I can use to help lower the price. Thanks
  12. New to the forum. Just bought my first Chevy in over 15 years and absolutely love it! I have a 2017 Black Silverado, Double Cab, LTZ, Z71, 6.5' bed. I am in the process of Chrome deleting/covering. After purchasing the truck I have made the following changes: Swapped 20" chrome for 22" Tahoe style black. wheels, mud flaps, black mirror covers, black door handle covers, black tailgate handle covers, swapped factory chrome window moldings for black, and Bestop tri-fold cover. I really like the all black look, but I want to stick with the gloss black, not matte. I still want to replace the antenna, the front grille assembly with Midnight Edition or something similar (no chrome) and change out the chrome "skid plate" on the lower front bumper with black. I am looking for help with a couple of things: A part number or source for the grille and skidplate. I have seen a couple of numbers for the grill but they all seem to be discontinued and I cannot find any info at all on a black skid plate for the lower bumper. Anyone who is interested in a chrome/black parts swap. I have the original chrome window moldings that I would like to sell Thanks and look forward to being a Chevy owner for a long time to come!
  13. Hello! I'll be buying a new 17' Silverado 1500 in a couple of days and was wondering if there was any helpful advice when buying a new truck. Much appreciated.
  14. This is my 2nd GMC truck...Unfortunately I had my 2009 Sierra 1500 stolen But thankfully insurance pulled through and took care of me! Well after much research and weighing my options...I decided to step into the Diesel world! I tow a Toy hauler so I knew I wanted something that can handle towing what I currently have and that could handle whatever I upgraded to in the future!!! I ended up getting a 2016 Denali HD and I am in love with it! I know this is the perfect place for recommendations and help so if any of you guys out there could help me out with any valuable info I need to be aware on and also maybe some recommendations on any after market things that I can do to it that would be much appreciated! I look forward to reading and seeing all the cool things on this forum! Thanks!!!!
  15. Hey everyone, new here from Fenton, MI. Bought my truck last August... first time truck owner and I absolutely love it. 2014 GMC Sierra Z71 - crew cab. Just about every option other than leather seats... which I don't care for much anyway. I actually just got some new tires 275/60/20 Goodyear Duratrac tires, 20% tint, and also got a leveling kit put on. Next up is an HID kit from the retrofit source, spray in bedliner and a tonno cover.
  16. I have a set of 2014+ GMC Sierra 1500 seat covers, brand new factory, I am looking to part ways with. If you are interested, please PM me for info and pics. Thanks
  17. Anyone know what this is from or the cause? After I start the engine every single time a few seconds after a siren/alarm turns on inside. It is not coming from the speakers but under the dash or radio somewhere. It chimes likes 7 times and it stops. I just got the truck a few weeks ago from the dealer brand new. I posted a video of what it sounds like on youtube. P.S dont click on the link directly but rather copy and paste it into the browser or else you cant view it from some weird reason youtube.com/watch?v=q2iOAZ6W_2k&feature=youtu.be
  18. Hey everyone! New to the site and forum. Been reading alot of posts for a while and figured I'd join.

If anyone is interested, PM for more info and pics. Thanks!

  22. Just joined 5 minutes ago, in search of help.
  23. Howdy everyone! Just thought I'd jump in here and make an intro post before I started digging into the forums. A couple weeks ago I sold my '08 Tahoe Z71 and bought a 2014 Silverado 4x4. It pained me to let go of the old girl, but it needed to happen. The Silverado has black heated leather seats and a front bench (awesome) MyLink, backup cam etc. so that made me feel a little better, haha. Which brings us to the reason behind the purchase of the Silverado.... Right now I'm running a real estate investment services business and recently began doing residential/commercial sales with a local broker to get some more experience and bring in a bit more income, all the while trying to finish up my degree at Texas A&M. I bought the Tahoe in cash 3 years ago, and have never had any auto loans or installment loans on my credit, just a number of monthly paid off credit cards! Although I have good credit, my lack of student loans, auto loans, or other financed purchases combined with the age of my credit (I turned 23 this month) would make it pretty difficult to secure the debt financing needed to purchase income-generating properties I have my eye on. SO, I sold the Tahoe, pulled a certain amount of cash out of the equity in it to keep, and put the remainder toward the Silverado's financing. All of this was done with the idea of building stronger credit over the next year, throwing a little cash into my future investment coffers, and continuing to work in my current capacities until I'm comfortable moving on more personal investment properties outside the scope of my business. I am intentionally doing this without financial backing from parents or other family members - even though they would happily help in a heartbeat, I insist on doing these things myself. Anyway I'm sure 0.3 out of 64,000 people found this interesting but I thought I'd share! Here's the old Tahoe and the new Silverado, because that's what you really wanted to see! The Tahoe was approaching 220,000 miles in this picture, I have many more from this shoot, it looks immaculate And here's the Silverado, now at 27,000 miles. Nothing unique about it (yet) but it's still a good looking truck. Thanks for reading, y'all. See you in the forums! -Max
