    Ok, I think I might be on to something here. I could be wrong but I dont think it's a carb issue. I think the stumbling and the rough starting is timing related. One thing i forgot to mention(i...

    Steering Issues

    I have an 82 K10 4x4. Most of the time it drives straight as an arrow. I can usually let go of the steering wheel on a straight, smoothe road and it wont veer off to one side or the other. But,...

    I dont know about a 2008 but I know for my truck I go through LMCTCK.COM. They have free catalogs. I have a much older truck though so I don't know for sure if they'll have what you need.
