2010 Silverado Rack and pinion 'Bushings" 2010 Silverado Rack and pinion 'Bushings"

I have a 2010 Silverado 1500 with a 3.5 RC lift. I do not have any alignment problems while driving . I was told today by a local shop that my power steering rack has to much play so I would need to change the Rack and Pinion because you can't just change just the bushings. The mechanic showed me the movement in the bushing while turning the wheel and there was some small movement ...

99 Sierra Extended Cab 4x4: Suspension

I am new to the site and NOT a gear head. I have read some of the forums and you folks just amaze me with what you know about mechanics. I have the old sierra with 89k. The truck physically is in great shape. Motor and transmission run and work great. Everything works with the exception of the outside power mirrors. The big issue is the truck is real stiff riding.

2" zone level with front valance removed

Just got done putting a zone 2" level on the truck added hankook 275/60/r20's AT m's (and no one can tell me what the "m" means) and removed the front valance and my mud flaps. Here are some pics.

Superlift 6"-7.5" Suspension Lift

Hi, I have a 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 6.0L 4x4 and I have been recently looking at lifts,wheels, and tires for my truck.
My question: is Superlift a good quality lift and how easy is it to install?
I want to run 20x12 Fuel Maverick wheels that have a -44 offset with 35" tires. Will these wheels work with this lift or would a 6" lift be just fine to use these wheels?

Thanks, I ...

Do they make replacement ones for trucks with lifted front ends? The truck is extremely bouncy in the ...
