New build 2010 LTZ

Postby RichyZ71 [OP] » Sep 14 2018, 7:50pm

Being apart of the gmt 400 group so long ive gone through many trucks since, all gms. back into a chev now and wanted to start a build thread where i can maybe have some help from people.. so i picked this up for 7500 bucks. LTZ, diamond white pkg. CCSB, 5.3 6spd. love it so far. bought it with 193,000km. needed rear shocks, i said screw it and bought the 3.5"RC lift. dont know what the big complaint is. i love this lift, ran it on my 14 sierra. 20,000km and not 1 issue. Now for the big question, i need new tires. currently have 18x8 monster xds and from what i can tell are +18 offset. the are rubbing on the a-arms. ordered spacers, should be here next few weeks... still need tires. whats everyone running with this lift and offset? thanks. many more pics to come yet.

Seems like a bargain for $7500.

agreed, guy was convinced it needed a new front end since the tires wore funny. i just went along with it. it just needed an alignment. the paint is rougher then id like though, few small rust spots on the driver door and rear diver door and tons of rock chips.

Wow do i suck at updating this thread. trucks now lifted on a 3.5rc, did the front end awhile back, 22x12 XD misfits on 33.12.5 fury country hunter, OEM chev box cover, P3P tune, k2xx tow mirrors, rough country quick struts, 2 way command start, b&m trans drain plug (have a damned flare on the trans post tune, tuner has exhausted every effort to try and get rid of it but still cant.) and the rest is just basic maintenance. the rust iis getting to bad im going to remove the chrome and white raptor line down from there (colour matched pear white) and now is at 212,000 km.. also did an amazon catch can. works amazing until it fills up and freezes in the winter then the truck will idle funny then just stall. ususally fills up every 4 months. tows occasionally andjust gets used as the daily.

Wonder if you needed to do the front end due to lift after only 19,000km or if it was because it had not been done in 212k km

all OEM parts, did them at 200,000 KM. i only did them out of preventative work, the one CV boot was ripped, so i just did both axles since it only takes like an hour to do them.. i bought cheap UCAs though and the boots are allrready ripped so im going to get the RC forged ones with the moog joint one day. tie rods were fine, just did them just because i was in there

Notice how my driver side tire and rim is super cambered? Vs my passenger? They told me it was because of the lift. Which makes zero sense to me, cause if that were the case then it would be both sides and not just one?? Ball joints are all night so are tie rod ends have stock esky rims on waiting for my new rim and tire set up

Would need to see some straight on shots on a smooth and level parking lot or something...but in the bottom picture it does look off. That 3.5 puts things at steep angles...but others have run it and seem to be able to have it aligned properly.

Assuming your cam plates didnt break or the pins didnt snap off/fall out, then something is broke or worn out.

Nature of the beast with the stretched leveling kits.

Make sure you check your ball joints by jacking up on the lower control arm. Sometimes play can be masked if you Jack up on the frame instead. More common on torsion bar suspensions, but still can happen on these strut setups as well.

Take a prybar of decent size and stick it under the wheel and try to move it up and down. There should not be any play. Same thing side to side to check your tie rods.
