    Spent WAY too much time researching ride quality of 3" proper lift vs. 2.5" front:1-2" rear level kit for my 2015 LT Tahoe. Suggestions?

    Ride quality is very subjective, and it also depends on for what purpose. The qualities that make for a good ride on smooth pavement are not the same that I’d prefer on rough surfaces. Some explanation of what you do or don’t want will get you some better answers.

    09 Tahoe, New fuel pump.. fuel rails dry

    There is a Dorman FSCM that is plug and play, ready to go. At least for my 2008. I’ll see if I can find my post with the part number… ”Dorman FPCM / FSCM part number 601-022”. Fits mine, you’ll want to confirm if the 2009 differs.

    Emissions Question…

    Some emissions checks require multiple operating cycles to change state. When you reset codes the state of those checks is set to ”incomplete“. Basically there’s 3 states; pass, fail, incomplete. So now you have to complete the drive cycle for the test in question to update the status. The...

    Removed rear seats

    I took out the second row and built drawers for the rear cargo area about 8” tall. Plus a separate cabinet level with the drawers to cover the second row area. So now I have lots of storage below and a level surface for sleeping if I should ever want to. There’s pics in my thread in the Under...

    Hello Tahoe Duramax

    So, Lincoln Logs, eh? That’s a nice looking Hoe. Word lately has been the diesel production was crippled by manufacturing issues. Did you order yours, or locate it and snap it up?

    Spark Plugs - 2008 Chevy Tahoe 5.3L Flex Fuel

    I used the 41-162 recently. And the best set of Belden wires available from NAPA. (I would have used OEM wires but no source nearby at the time) Happy with both choices. I have one suggestion. Don’t do number 8 first, it’ll be discouraging. :893Chainsaw-Smilie- And don’t save it till last...

    New here w/ 11 Hoe Mountain/overland build

    Nice, I like the look. I think you hit the right balance of mods for your use. Mine is more hardcore off-road built but I wouldn’t tow much with it.

    Lead acid or AGM.

    AGM batteries designed for automotive use are made to be compatible. Mostly what determines charge profile is the chemistry e.g. lead/acid vs LiFePo or something else. AGM is just a construction method where the electrolyte is suspended in the mat rather than free floating. This is a somewhat...

    Dripping from tail pipe

    Condensation happens in every vehicle exhaust when it’s not fully warmed up. Water is one of the products of combustion. More a concern is where is your coolant going? Some leaks can be hard to find, especially those that only drip in operation. A radiator pressure tester is the best tool for...

    Would you replace a Trans as preventative maint?

    Hopefully that was the last half hour of the return trip. Maybe it’s shedding stuff and plugging the cooler. And / Or the TCC is shot and it’s running unlocked all the time.

    What did you do to your NNBS GMT900 Tahoe/Yukon Today?

    First start this morning I got some valve clatter for a good 15 seconds or so. Gauge was indicating normal ~30 or thereabouts. It’s never done that before. :confused: Second start this afternoon all quiet. Filed under things that make you go hmmmm… Changed oil and filter a few hundred miles...

    front hub assembly replacement (when)

    Firstly, that is a nice looking 2 door! You are correct, it’s a non serviceable unit bearing. At that age, my concern would be whats the condition of the seals. Most accounts I read of bearings are at significantly higher mileage. But when the seals go, and dirt/moisture gets in, game over...

    Is this another one-post wonder with no follow up? Six days I expect the problem is resolved one way or another.

    New Girl to the Tahoe World!

    Welcome! Do consider that protruding tires make a mess. Slinging slush in the door handles and windows. Just one factor to consider. If I was getting dedicated winter rubber I’d use winter tires and keep them under the fenders, but that’s just me.

    Too much CV angle?

    Lower the front if it binds OR install a differential drop kit.

    Too much CV angle?

    Jack it up so the front is at full droop. Turn steering wheel full lock, then spin the tires to see if a CV binds. Test both left and right wheels and with steering at both left and right lock.

    What did you do to your NNBS GMT900 Tahoe/Yukon Today?

    Sometimes I click my cap 10 times. I believe the impact sensors are counting the clicks and I am making up the deficit from the previous owner who put a clickless, non flex fuel cap on it. I’m expecting my merit badge any day now.

    Newby questions about mounting winch on 2004 Chevy Tahoe 4x4

    You can certainly travel with something on the front or rear receiver, I see many people doing it. Just be cognizant of the effect on approach or departure angles. If that’s a concern where you drive, a winch bumper would be a better choice.
