It is mostly good. It really is the shot CV boot and a little loose pitman arm together with the really stiff Bilsteins. This setup will need to last till summer and then it will be overdone with a Liftkit and softer shocks. But it wasn‘t as serious as I thought it would be.

Back on Track!

New CV Boot, new U Joints and new Tranny fluid.
Picked it up yesterday when I changed it for the Duramax.

The Driveshaft bearing was the right package but wrong part inside so we are still waiting on that.

Took it out for a quick drive through the forest.. man this thing is perfect for soft grounds and the 4x4 pulls super good!
Shifted awesome with the new fluid and no more clunking because of the u joints

Aaand down again.
Tried to start it yesterday and battery was dead.
Tried jumping it and nothing worked.
Put in a new battery, fired up and showed
„Service Battery System“ but no battery lamp in dash..

Decided to take the othet car because I was in a hurry.
I think the alternator is cooked, last time my voltage reading was good over 14V and the alternator had some strange sound a while ago when starting.

Need it next week so I‘ll throw an alternator in and see what happens. New battery already ordered

Maybe it is just jealous of the new duramax....

Forgot to update this one.

New alternator and battery are in and it drives really smooth.
Loaded the Diablosport canned tune for 91 octane gas and it makes a good difference. Now tackling the Lew Tune soon since I know it should be even more difference

Still need to get a few things done..
Fog lights are tinted yellowish now and I´ll put them on with new bumper corners soon

Had the battery Problem again after two weeks of sitting in front of my Girls house.. found a loose negative terminal but that didn´t help. Charged it and it ran..
Then went to the Garage and had the plan to do some minor work on it like replacing the Speaker that blew..
So I should have known you can´t replace the Speakers with Aftermarket ones.. Stopped that and bought some Adapters which should show up here soon. Found out both rear Speakers aren´t working so I decided to buy an amplifier for all four Speakers and update them.
After the Speaker Change didn´t work I decided to install a new set of door locks /tailgate locks and ignition lock cylinder. All worked till I wanted to start it. Showed me the theft warning. Seems like you Need to Programm a new ignition lock cylinder instead of just dropping it in..

Then drove home because it was late and parked it again.. 1 week later the doors wouldn´t open when I unlocked them with the key. Had to use one of These inflatable bags to push the door out, get the passenger side door pin and enter. Driver side lock was some how hung up although the pin did move.

So all in all had a few minor Problems which cost alot of time but ist getting better now
