Re: Diff Temp video

I love these problems. The problem isn’t the problem, it’s the lack of a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist. So now we can all mind fuck a solution until we give up and agree there isn’t a problem that needs solving. But Gale told us there wasn’t a solution... so we had to mind fuck it to find...

Borgeson 800123 box

Skip Borgeson and Redhead and buy a PSC. I can get you a PSC box that is brand new and has bigger bearings, bigger apply piston, the current trucks’ case (much bigger than 3rd gen), with the monster output sector shaft to run 08+ steering, with the same input shaft your truck has so you don’t have t...

Re: "Smart" Sway Bar, discontinued part. Help please!

There’s several things that could be wrong instead of the module. I’ve had that happen several times I believe from moisture in the connector and from heat while towing.

Pit Slave might have spare SmartBar stuff.

Re: Thuren driver side e brake drop bracket

Instead of holding the cable it allows it to hang free and protects it from the tire. As long as that cable is away from the tire side of the bracket you should be good! The cable is stiff enough to be self supporting.

No indicator of failure. I think 187,000 miles of hard use broke a valve spring, or the top of the valve snapped off.

I’m really surprised the valve seat is completely untouched.

Re: Thuren driver side e brake drop bracket

The drivers side e-brake bracket replaced the factory bracket. You installed it on the frame, correct? They mount in totally different spots between the two sides. The drivers side has a round cutout in the bracket to fit around the round tube protruding through the frame at the top of the wheel wel...

Re: 05 PW Shock Lenghts

I don’t know the lengths off hand. 16.5” sounds familiar as a starting point but you’ll need to measure with the springs and bump stops removed and the axle sitting metal to metal. Shock length is ALWAYS driven by the fully compressed dimension and whatever lift height you’re at has no bearing on sh...

I had posted that info above just after one of yours.

Cam lobe and lifter seem fine. Pushrod seat in the lifter looks fine. Bearing feels the same as the other 7 on that side with some hand load.

Re: DamageWagon's Build - 2011 "AdventureWagon"

Plan right now is to not replace any pistons. The contact was very minimal and I think just smoothing down the surface will be enough. I’ll check out the edge of it and see how it looks by the cylinder wall. So far it’s looking like one valve, guide, seal, spring, retainer and pushrod is it. The lif...

Nothing, at all, just the pushrod, spring and valve. Everything else looks good so far. Valve bent a pinch I believe so it never dropped.

Speaking of IFS I’ve been driving a GMC 1500 for a few days. Not terribly bad but for a half ton the ride quality kinda sucks!

My truck on a 3” lift, 37’s, with an antenna base on the cab fits just fine through my 7” garage. Parking garages with the severe entry slope might be a different story.

You got it, can you shoot me an email at tech@dethloffmfg.com? Much easier for me to give info through email.

I think the power wagon is a sweet platform off the lot. Try to avoid riding in a truck with 2.5” or larger shocks or it’s going to get expensive!
