    What did you do to your GMT today? [Part II]

    Like Flyboy2610 trying to take advantage of the weather in the Midwest. Changed oil and lubed chassis on both my son's 05 TB and my wife's Envoy Denail. Had to buy the ProTec filters by Wix. Now have 11 of each on the shelf. Notice that the passenger CV boot was spraying grease on my son's TB...

    What did you do to your GMT today? [Part II]

    Got the damage from when my son backed his 2005 TB into the wife's 2006 Envoy Denali. Getting an intermittent C0035 code for the driver's side front ABS circuit. Will try to look for wire damage before I replace the hubs. Any suggestions on good hubs for these trucks?

    I changed out the rear shocks in the wife's 06 Envoy Denali over the weekend . The back bounces once now but the front is now very bouncy by comparison. Maybe next week to change the front struts out. Used the 4600 Bilsteins which are noticeably bigger diamater tubes than the stockers.

    Bought a battery at O'Reilly Auto online for my son's 2005 TB. Doesn't hold a charge and drives fine after a jump. He says the voltage is good when driving. The battery is 4 years old this month.

    My trucks have had a rough summer. Went on vacation and told my son he could park on the driveway. Big Mistake his Trailblazer tried to hump my wife's Envoy Denali.

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Been a while but today I changed out the Air Springs on the Wife's Envoy Denali. They weren't leaking yet but had the top layer of rubber de laminating and weather cracking. Rather do today when it's 60 instead of when it's 0 F and I have no choice
