    How about a quick ratio steering box? That way you can steer around the pot holes, avoiding bottoming out and blowing a tire, etc...

    Truck failed inspection because cat too close to floor. Cheap fix?

    That's a new one for me. Take it back, and have the mechanic show you the rulebook and the wording that specifies the proper distance from body to converter. If they can't, they're blowing smoke up your ass.

    Wheels stick out to far for PA.

    The problem in this equation is the 15" wheel. In order for the 15's to clear the lower ball joint, it needs to be offset. Anyone giving you suggestions on any wheel larger than 16 doesn't have the clearance problem of the undersize 15" wheel. Theres been partial solutions offered, none will...

    Strangely enough, AFM or DOD (or whatever acronym they use) isn't an option on the GMT400. While many mechanics might be familiar with the system, a GMT800, 900, or GMTXX site would be a better forum for that info. Just saying... it's kinda like asking for EcoBoost tuning on a Model T site...

    Gmt400 Escalade

    Never said there was. Just queried if there was a question associated with said pictures... In actuality, I admire how the clear front lenses look in combination with the light body color. I put dark tinted lenses front and rear on my black Denali.

    Tow package - white wire

    Truck side reverse is a dark green. Not to be confused with light green, being right turn/brake. Black is ground. Never seen a white. Perhaps someone spliced in a different color?

    Everyone's favorite paint for making headers look good again? 89 350 crate

    I've been using a high heat paint, designed for gas or charcoal grills. Withstands about 1500 degrees. Its held up well to summer towing, and winter salt and snow plowing extremes.

    Gmt400 Escalade

    Wow! Vain, self absorbed, and overly sensitive. Great combination. Perhaps a psychiatrist website would be a better place for you... And for the sake of the conversation, I have a '00 Denali. Same basic luxury upgraded SUV. My son loves using it as a jungle gym. So its not my youth I am...

    88 gmc 1500 2wd

    What year Roadmaster? They've been coil springs with trailing arms, the brakes and bearings are smaller, and have been rated lower for carrying loads than one from an S10. Heck of a downgrade...

    Tilt Steering wheel

    It's the entire column. You'll need to find one in the boneyard that has the same options (i.e.: cruise, wiper delay) then swap over your ignition cylinder. I think '88-'93 should be compatible.

    Looking for stock style exhaust options

    OBD 2 vehicles use dual upstream O2 sensors. Does your "Option 2" y-pipe come equipped with dual bungs? Does your OE pipe assy have 1 or 2 downstream sensors. You'll need to equip your new exhaust with the same number, and locations as OE

    Lower Control Arms Help

    You sure the lower control arms aren't gonna be too long? From mounting bolts to ball joints, the 8-lug trucks sit much wider than the 6-luggers.

    Transfercase question VSS

    Both the NV4500 and the 4L80 should have 6 bolt patterns, and 32 spline output shafts. Put your '97 t-case back in and the VSS should begin working again.

    98 Silverado 5.0 Vortec, loss of power under a load

    Any codes? My first thought was a malfunctioning torque converter lockup solenoid. It's supposed to unlock to give some additional engine rpm when passing at highway speeds
