Those look great. Very Optimus Prime-ish.  I’ve not heard anyone say anything negative about McGaughy’s. I think, in suspension components, “you get what you pay for”.

I’m always keeping my options open. I’ve had my stuff looked at by a few trusted people and am told my angles are good...but I have a garage full of stuff so I might add a set to my bench stock :D  not set on any brand. I told you (I think) that I’d ask about that setup you have because I like it a lot...just thinking out loud.

Thanks for the info guys. Looking at the FabTech UCA's. The main reason for my concern was a post I read somewhere about the new style UCA's not securing the ball joint. Supposedly when they get worn, they can fail and the UCA can come loose. Anyone else heard about this?


If you’re looking for superior quality and reinforced strength, take a look at the CST Performance Suspension Part# CSS-C2-17

Best mod I’ve done to this truck with zero issues, only reason I didn’t go with new uca’s is cause my shop told me not to since my angles were perfect and told me they’d throw them on if ever I felt that I needed them.

Wish I could ride or drive yours. I’ve had mine leveled since almost day 1 so it’s hard for me to judge good or bad ride on my truck. I have driven a few lifted trucks and they didn’t feel much different. I just know for me I do not want to go any higher...knee issues. So UCAs might be in my future.

Look at the way their built, reinforced with gussets mig welded, tubular is much stronger than rectangular. I may just go ahead and have the shop order mine Monday and have them installed later in the week. The GM lectures me for years on stop spending money on something that’s not needed.

That’s funny, I’ve never had a level done before, all were lifted, leveled mine first month, hated it! Ride sucked and then started looking at coil overs for a smoother ride and jumped on this kit after raving testimonials from actual CST lifted truck owners. My shop guy looked at me and said. “ you never keep anything long enough, get something cheaper” I said do it! The master installer walked up to the GM and heard him raving about the quality and how it’s badass compared to others especially excellent welds and reinforcement. You know what to do when you’re ready!

Sorry, forgot about your knees. CST and King shocks make excellent leveled replacement coil overs that’s give your truck a far better driving experience, 2” up front but will need new UCA’s for those 2.5 coil overs.

      Good morning everyone! I'm currently in Bend Oregon getting ready to spend my day driving the all new 2020 Silverado HD. I wanted to share my experience with you and will be posting photos as the day goes on. I'm embargoed on some info until next weekend but can share as many pics as I can post. 
       
       Crossing my fingers I have a good phone signal most of the day.

      I’ve taken it to go get checked the sun roof hoses they are good don’t know if it’s the on star roof antena I took to to a windshield place they said they had fixed it. But from yesterday rain it started to drip more. When it’s parked or driven water leaks in. It’s the 3rd time this has happens I don’t know where it’s coming from or track the source  it’s a headache. Any help thanks

      I replaced these wheels with aftermarket at the 2,000 mile mark. They are like new, as you can see in the pictures. I'm selling them all together (four Denali wheels, the spare, and five Goodyear Wranglers with full tread life). The Wranglers are 265/70R18. The 8x180 lug pattern is for the HDs, but they can be adapted to different lug patterns if you're trying to update an older model truck. 
      They're all beautiful with no curb scuffs or damage of any kind. I'm asking $1,000 for all five, but I'm somewhat flexible on that if you make a solid offer early. You can come pick them up, or I'm willing to ship them if you're willing to pay the shipping. PM me if interested or post publicly if you have any questions that could benefit the group.

      Hey guys, I'm having a real tough time with my 2013 chevrolet silverado 4.8L V8 the engine is an L20 Vortec. 
      I'm getting all these nasty fault codes and they are intermittent and usually start acting up when I'm driving in the city.
             When the engine is warm and I stop in traffic, or hit a crawl speed. The truck normally kicks into "limp mode" and all these fault codes start up ex. P2544 ( regularly) P150C, P069E, and recently P0700. now there is a list of communication codes, but normally its U0073, U0100, and U0109. 
            I've gone to a few auto shops and they kinda said god luck, The dealer had no idea what i was talking about, started with cleaning all my grounds, as well as my fuses, everything seems to be in order. My brother (who is a mechanic) seems to think my TCM is at fault and not working, but I'm hesitant to call that the problem because Im pretty sure its in my transmission which seems like a fairly big job.
      Everything else runs fine and there is no problems at all when the truck isn't acting up. Any thoughts or suggestions? I'm pretty desperate to fix this as I plan on taking it to Alaska in july

      I installed aftermarket tow mirrors on my truck, i also purchased a factory gm tow mirror wiring harness from my dealer. The mirrors cam from eBay. I plugged everything in and it works except when I turn on any signal light all the lights come on, both signals on the truck and on the mirror. The mirrors have turn signals on the glass and the front, the cargo lights work fine but when signalling its like my emergency flashers are on. Any help?
