    There is a search box in the upper right hand corner of the site on all of the forum pages underneath the ad bar.

    I find the forum search function to be cumbersome.

    An excellent way to search any website's contents is to use the Google site: command.

    Say you wanted to search for lift kit information for a Sivlerado on GMtruckclub type the following into the Google search bar:

    Silverado Lift Kit site:gmtruckclub.com

    By using the 'site:gmtruckclub.com' function Google will only search within that websites contents instead of the whole web.

    Good idea! Another thing that would help is when people create threads is adding tags that other members can use for finding that info at a later date.

    What are you looking for? Sometimes the search tool is difficult to use for certain key words, but if you let us know, we can paste a few thread links here for you related to your topic.
