Re: Thuren Track Bar

The bushings never look as bad as they are. You’ll definitely feel improvement.

Re: Chip your car.

I don’t think they did, which is part of the whole setup they have. It only works when it’s plugged into the OBD2. I think that’s how they made it work. They’re changing the data the PCM sees, they are not reprogramming anything permanently.

Re: Chip your car.

Sounds like it would need to be a dialed setup but I’ve heard close numbers before from just tuning. The biggest differences I’ve heard were always down low though, where timing is very retarded

Re: Thuren Track Bar

For big torque specs, the hard part is figuring out where to hold/clamp the object. I then use the simple calculation of my body weight multiplied by the lever length. For a 250lbft torque, have the lever parallel to the ground so you’re pushing straight down. I’m 200lbs so 250/200=1.25 feet from th...

Re: Thuren Track Bar

Do install on the ground. No jacks, no stands. Just unbolt the old one and put the new one in! Use a ratchet strap to pull the truck one way or the other to line up the bolt hole. I’ve never heard of greasing the heim threads, only greasing the bushing through its zerk. That said be SURE to torque t...

Re: Trans to hot message

170 is totally normal or a touch high on a warm/hot day. Shifting a lot and driving lower speeds gets temp up with the torque converter not being locked as much and not as much air flow over the cooler. But 170 is perfectly fine, could run that all day every day. I’ve touched 200F crawling in Moab a...

Re: Thuren Track Bar

That is the drag link. What do you mean you can rotate it up and back an inch? Because it has spherical bearing sboth end you should be able to rotate that bar by hand about the joints. But if you have someone steer the truck, engine running, while you watch, if the joints ‘pop’ up and down then the...

Re: Thuren Rear Sway Bar Link Clearance Issue W/ Diff Guard

Lubing pintop bushings isn’t going to do anything to help them, there is no movement except the compression of the rubber itself. Pintops suck but there’s no getting around that with bolt-in parts.

Re: Shocks???

I’d throw a set of Thuren Overland’s on. They offer extended travel, are huge in comparison to the stock shocks, better valving profile all-round, and are cheaper than stock I have no references for replacing the axle control shock. I’d let it leak until you notice a problem, you may never need it d...

Re: Chip your car.

How does this feel driving? How are the shifts? How is the low/mid RPM performance? I was going to pick up a Diablosport to improve shifts and lower RPM torque but at half the price this sounds like a killer deal if it works well. Different products and this doesn’t sound nearly as versatile but I’m...

Re: Thuren Rear Sway Bar Link Clearance Issue W/ Diff Guard

The other two Chris & David with the links dragged theirs too. Becuase of the increased length they are significantly lower. It's not a problem on the street which is probably all most people ever do. And not a problem if you boogie. But if you crawl, that difference equals impact. I don't think mi...

Is there an emissions delete kit? I think there is for the 5.7. You’ll still have cats and all that good stuff but if you can ditch EGR you might be in a much better spot

Re: 2.5s versus 3" Kings

I would never go back to 2.5’s but I use my truck all the time for play and work. 3.0’s ride smoother than comparably valved 2.5’s while also having more bottom out resistance, like Colibri said. If you’re asking if you need 3.0’s, you don’t even need 2.5’s. But ‘need’ is a terrible word and antithe...

They come pre-set to the correct length, should be 39-1/8” eye to eye for 03-13 trucks. Yank the old bar and put the new one with starting with the axle side heim. Use a ratchet strap on the frame and on the axle to help pull the truck whichever way it needs to go and then put the bushing side bolt ...

Re: Rear Shock Question

With the Thuren front spring only. It's the correct length stock, as is the front track bar. You don't need the entire kit. Thuren rear springs and swar bar links, and Kings should be going on tomorrow or Tuesday. This is true. I ran Thuren springs and stock Bilsteins for some time..maybe 5k miles....

You can also buy that stuff in things other than clear if you wanted to get uber fancy. They 3.0s are black cerakote body. Does that change if I need to cover them or not? Just remembered that... No, you don’t need to wrap them. The shocks don’t rust in normal or semi-humid climates. Especially wit...
