I'm new to the forums here and needed some assistance in replacing the shocks and tires on my new Truck.
I just recently purchased a 2016 Silverado High Country with 35k miles on it and after a week a driving it around I feel that it rides a little to stiff/bumpy for my liking. I know it's not supposed to ride like a Cadillac or an Audi or anything like that but my previous 2014 Sierra All Terrain seemed to ride pretty smooth.
I have heard that replacing the stock tires and shocks can help with that issue but I have no clue as where to start.
Was hoping some of you GM truck enthusiasts could help enlighten me as to which shocks and tires I should look into purchasing for an overall more comfortable ride.
Thanks in advance
1) 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 double cab 4wd
2) Ordered 3.5” (upper and lower spacers) front leveling kit 2.5” rear level kit.
3) stock 18” x 8.5” wheels 24mm offset
4) new tires are going to be BF Goodrich KO2 but want wider/bigger than stock tire size
5) what are my size options and/or how do I figure out my size options?

Those wishing for some guidance on how the all new 3.0L Duramax Diesel will rate just had that wish come true. The Fast Lane Truck got the scoop from someone with access to General Motor's Canadian Dealer Portal. Promotional material that included specs for the new 3.0L were photographed and emailed to the website yesterday. That means someone with dealer access facilitated the leak.
The not quite yet official figures rate the light-duty diesel engine at 282 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. The material also claims a highway rated fuel economy of 28 mpg. That's more power then both Ford and Ram's small diesels, which produce 250hp/440 lb-ft and 240hp/420 lb-ft respectively.
The same spec sheets also list the towing capacity of the 3.0L at 7,800 lbs, which falls below the 5.3L and 6.2L's 9,000lb+ rating. To us this signals that GM will market the 3.0L Diesel as a daily commuter for someone who occasionally tows.
What do you think about the ratings and capability? Chime in on this thread in our 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra forum.
Now that owners are taking delivery of the new 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, I thought a quick reference guide to common routine maintenance items would be beneficial to us all. If you have information that you'd like suggest be added to this topic, just post below and I'll update this first post with any and all new/updated information.
