Had to take my truck in to have some issues addressed. One of the items on that list was steering wheel groan or creak when turning lock-to-lock. The best way i can describe it is, when you turn the steering wheel to a lock at one end, as you start turning it back, there is this groan/creak sound. Funny enough, the loaner i had also exhibited the same issue so i feared it might come back as operating as designed.
It turns out this was due to a noisy steering shaft seal. They refitted the seal and the noise is gone. If you are experiencing this and it's bugging you, it's not operating as intended and you should get it fixed.
I have a grant steering wheel assembly, but I need more insight on how to install. Watched a bunch of videos but couldn't find a good one for what I doing.
I searched for a thread that would provide some feedback on this, but did not find any actual comparison between the two tires. With that said, I would like to hear from those that have owned both of these tires and get their feedback. Could you tell a difference in ride quality? Did the R/T handle better? Did it wear down slower? Did your highway MPG improve?
Once I lifted my truck, I put on 35x12.5x20 Toyo M/T tires, and in all honesty I really have no complaints. With that said, if the R/T is a more functional daily driver tire then I see no reason to not switch if the benefits are there.
Appreciate any and all feedback.
I have a 2014 GMC Sierra 4x4 Crew Cab with the standard bed. I have the Rancho Quick-Lift front struts for the front that level the front about 2-1/4". I am looking at adding an additional 1" of lift front and rear. The rear will be either blocks or an add-a-leaf kit. The front will be done with strut spacers while also adding Upper Control Arms and a 3/4" differential drop kit to keep the upper ball joints and CV joints within factory specs. I am looking for something to help with the lower control arms, steering links, and sway bar end links or drop brackets to keep the rest of the suspension geometry in alignment. Does anyone have any sources for any of these components besides fabricating them?
