It’s just for the two drag link jam nuts and adjustment sleeve. Check to make sure yours are tight and there is no obvious thread damage and you’re good to go.
So just went out and crawled under the PW in the driveway, No apparent damage to threads but the Passenger side nut was loose.?

Re: 6th Recall WTF ?

Thanks everybody.If you guys with 2018's and 2019's can put up with it, I suppose I can too.

I will say the truck had done everything I asked of her with no complaints. By the time I hit my current PW mileage on the last chevy (2008 2500) I'll ever own, I'd probably had 10 warranty repairs.

6th Recall WTF ?

Just received my "Vehicle Health Report" by email. Says there is an "Urgent Recall" except they have no parts to fix it. WTF ? Also says the recall date was JANUARY 25. Today is February 20, and I have not received a letter like the five previous recalls. Recall says the issue can lead to a loss of ...

Re: Front Driveshaft Grease Fitting doesn't want to take grease

Thanks for the replies. As I'm still under warranty and have to go in for a U53 recall, I think I'm going to let the dealer take a look at it. No clue how to take the front driveshaft out, but I guess I'll have a look in the event I have to do it in the future. 50/50 odds the dealer won’t have a cl...

Never had it happen to mine, but then again I have not traveled many washboard roads with it.

Did you grab ahold of it and wiggle it?

Do you have the adjustable pedal option?
Yes sir.
I believe that is an issue that only affects the vehicles with the adjustable pedals option. The whole pedal set can shake around. :popcorn:
Still worth having the adjustable pedals, Thanks

If it shook when you applied the brakes, it's probably the ABS kicking in. Washboard confuses the crap out of the ABS computer.
Nope. Was on gas pedal on flat road, brake pedal was shaking side to side.

Brake pedal shakes violently on washboard road ?

Was on a fairly nasty washboard road Saturday while pheasant hunting. Brake pedal shook so hard and loud I was a bit concerned.

That normal ?

This is my first solid axle fwiw.

Thanks

Re: Off and On Road Lights

Sucks there is not much available for our trucks.

Found a great deal on Amazon for the rigid grill and 30" rds bar, but called rigid and they say it won't fit on a power wagon.

Pillar mounts and the over the windshield bar are going to create a bunch of wind noise.

Re: Alignment on 2015 20K Miles?

I'm no expert, but in my experience, any aggressive tread pattern tires need to be rotated every 5000 miles max, or cupping and uneven wear begins.
