    Anyone run 255/60/18 tires before? Any upper ball-joint clearance issues?

    I still need a set of tires to put on the 18" gloss black stockers I bought a few months ago. I have ran 2 other sets of 255/55/18 on my Verde wheels, but 18's look so awkward even on a lowered TB, mostly because of the tire profile. Figured i'd go up a tad. Was just wondering if anyone who has...

    Dealerships the only ones to have Tech II's?

    ..or do I need to go to a stealership and have them do a CASE Relearn? Have had a P0340 for a minute, started to occur a month or so after the swap. I was going to replace the CPS, but realized that i'd need to do a relearn anyway even if I did that. Just don't trust any shops or dealerships...

    Oil leaking at end of Oil Pressure Sending Unit

    I just was out at my truck and I noticed a 1 sq foot oil spot on the ground. Popped the hood and I see a droplet of oil dripping out of the end of the oil pressure sending unit about every 3 seconds. The green clip is broken at the part where it secures around the stub on the end of the sending...

    This is a long shot, but anyone wanna meet up?

    Only member I've ever met on GMTN in the South East was BlazingTrails (former member) back in 2014. We became very close friends and still are to this day, hanging out quite often (25min away).

    WANTED A/C Accumulator strap on Coolant Overflow Tank

    Mines been missing since I've had the TB. The accumulator sits there tilted over without this piece holding it in place. I don't want to have to have to buy a new overflow tank just to have this piece (the new ones seem to have a leak issue). Anyone have a GMT360 they're parting out or a spare...

    Truck took a few tries to start, now have knock/tapping noise?

    Went to start my truck after it sat a day, turned key and got nothing. Similar to as if you had a low battery. On some tries though it felt like the starter was getting caught up possibly. Well several tries later I heard and felt a loud thud noise and it started, idled roughly with gray smoke...

    Is there really no readily-available source for Tri-metal forged bearings?

    Other than having them custom made? Best I could come up with was Mahle/Clevite bearings that are Bi-metal and have .001% more clearance for oil. Just happens most of the parts I've chosen for the '05 engine refurbishing that i'm using for the Turbo project, are Mahle/Clevite because I know they...

    Should I re-do brake pad bedding procedure?

    So I tried bedding in my new brake pads, did I think 2 45mph-15mph's, followed by 7 60mph-15mph's. I wasn't as hard on the brakes as I probably should of been, but it was for sure a bit more than moderate. I was then able to cruise for 15min without using the brakes. Got back and only the...

    Article on GM Performance Division front brake cooling kit (discontinued)

    Surprised that GM didn't develop something like this from the factory for the TBSS, or that nobody else made kits like it after the GM Performance Division ceased to exist. Cost a whopping $399 MSRP, yet it was made of cheap enough parts and could be fabbed up by a clever handy person. Old...
