    Right on for the ECU location. I needed to modify the DRAC/VSSB speed controller and couldn't believe it. I pulled the glove box liner and there it was held in place with velcor.

    You might want to re-think the dual exhaust idea. Whether you do a true dual or a cat-back dual, it will cast a bundle and you probably won't see any improvement in HP. Matter of fact, you could...

    Maybe there isn't one. I'm an old shade-tree mechanic. Leaf springs prevent a lot of right-left shifting of the body compared to coil springs. I haven't looked under every kind of vehicle out there...

    Can't diagnose a noise from the backend

    Matt,

    Just forget about it then. The plug has probably never been removed. I'm old-school. I doubt many shops ever check the differential. To them, "check the fluids" only includes the crankcase...

    Can't diagnose a noise from the backend

    When you check the diff-grease level, you want to be parked on a level spot. Grab your 3/8" socket wrench, crawl under the right side of the truck near the rear wheel. On the front of the diff on...
  10. For Sale: Superlift TruSpeed speed sensor calibrator

    Do you still have it? Is it vehicle specific -- will it work on a '92 Suburban K1500 5.7l?

    I just did a 2" lift and put BFG A/T LT295/75R16/D tires on it. I knew the speedometer would be off...
  11. My Intro and question about Stock Wheel measurments

    :party: I finally finished the 2" lift (the instructions said to "tap the torsion bar out of the key" - I wonder when they use "pound w/sledge hammer") and I got the red (same as body color)...

    Sway (Stabilizer( Bar)

  15. Speedometer concerns with 2-inch lift and 33-inch tires

    I just completed a 2-inch lift on my '92 Suburban K1500 - blocks in the rear and new torsion bar keys up front. The OEM tires were LT245/75R16/C. But I've been running LT265/75R16/E for the last four...
