    2011 Avalanche Axle Swap

    Hey guys, I have done a few searches, but have not found what I am looking for yet. I have a 2011 Avalanche with 3.08 gears. I have a boat that weighs roughly 4-4500lbs. Towards the top of this trucks capacity. I was curious how much of a difference I would actually be able to expect if I...

    Rough Idle in Rain

    I never actually found a solution. I actually ended up selling the Tahoe not too long ago. it happened so rarely, that it was not at the top of my list at the time. It really didn't even do it every time that it rained. Makes me think even more that it was a loose connection somewhere. Hope you...

    Adding Homelink Possible?

    I was really hoping I could just install the over head console and it would work. If I can't do that, I will just use the button that comes with the opener. I was not sure if someone may have swapped consoles before and knew if it would work or not.

    Adding Homelink Possible?

    I guess it can't be done? Or not very feasible?

    Adding Homelink Possible?

    How easy would it be to add Homelink to my '11 Avy? From what I have seen, only LTZ models have it? Can't just swap consoles I don't think because don't all LTZ models have a sunroof? Can it be REASONABLY accomplished?

    Official Harbor Freight win or lose thread

    I have used quite a few tools from HF with no complaints. I used to work at a salvage yard dismantling cars and I would use their socket sets for everything. Literally never broke a socket. Lost a few, but not one broken one. Even if they were to break, you could buy an entire new set for the...

    Towing 2WD vs 4WD

    If I had the CHOICE, 4LOW is the way to go. But take in to consideration all of the extra moving parts that will wear and tear down the road. If the boat ramp is the only excuse to buy a 4x4, I think I would probably skip it. They don't design the ramps to require a 4x4. Although, on the tidal...

    Oil Pan Gasket Change

    I would also recommend replacing the oil pickup tube u-ring as well. It really is not difficult. Drop crossmember Unbolt steering rack Drain oil Remove all bolts holding pan on and remove pan(there are quite a few, so triple check before yanking on it) You will have to work around the...

    Back Up Sensors vs Trailer Hitch

    My '11 Avy senses my 3 way trailer hitch everytime I put it in reverse. I have to take it out to keep it from beeping/disabling. Does anyone else have this issue?

    Cv axle !!!?????!!??

    I forgot they had the flange! If you can remove the broken piece, but still leave the part that actually goes in to the carrier that the piece that goes into the wheel bearing, I would think you would be fine. You can probably do all of it without even having to remove the wheel.

    Cv axle !!!?????!!??

    If you remove it, you will lose fluids from your front carrier.

    Frozen bolt

    I would suggest kroil and heat (not at the same time obviously) and then maybe even try and tap on a slightly smaller socket.
