I dropped off my truck on Dec 15, 2015 and picked it up yesterday. This was after I was rear-ended on Dec 4, 2015. I decided, for me at least, that subrogation would be easier for me so I wouldn't have to deal with the other parties insurance.
My insurance coughed up about $4300 to repair the...
It's hard to explain but the front tires seem to sit "flatter" at the bottom of the tire vs the nice round look the rears have.
I'll post more pics of what I am talking about but it will be a few days since it's still at the collision center getting fixed from a Dec 4th accident...
So, I'm pretty much limited to using stock 17in GMC wheels for the time being.
With that being said, up front I have 7.5in, P27 code wheels. Out back is 9.5in (had them widened by Weldcraft).
I have 275/60's on all 4 corners.
The problem is that the sidewalls on the rear are "beefier"...
So an initial "e-estimate" (estimate based on the pictures I provided) came back at around $3200.00 to fix. This is not factoring in if there is any frame damage. I have an actual inspection scheduled for 12/15/15 @ 9:30a.
Thanks for the insight guys.
I'm REALLY hoping the frame isn't damaged. When I took a look under the truck, the only thing I saw that wasn't square was the bumper support brackets/related items. Of course, that's not to say the frame isn't bent somewhere.
I'm not really emotionally tied to the...
On Friday I was rear-ended. The damage to my truck is minor in every since, considering I drove it to work this morning and home from the accident.
For those of you that have had similar accidents, what are the chances that the insurance company is going to fix this? Will they...
I've got my 2006 Sierra dropped. It's about a 3/5. Here is how I dropped it.
DJM 1415 shocks
New tie rods
1in spacer (chevy lean fix)
DJM Flip Kit
1in lift shackle
DJM 1800 shocks
The bottoming out issue is on the front driver side. I...
Parts were just over $300. $150 of that was the pump itself, then hoses, tstat, cap, etc. I didn't just do the pump, I did all of it.
It was nice not to have to worry about wrenching on it for once. I have enough stress in my life right now.
I have a 40k as well. There is someone on another forum that makes a bolt-in kit for it. The only thing you have to do is cut one line (passenger side), spin it around and connect it with a compression fitting. It works great.
Already ruled it out by taking the belt off.
I've read that when the bearing goes bad, it'll squeal like a castrated pig....which is what mine is doing.
I'm just not replacing the pump. It's got 161k on it so it's getting a complete overhaul, new pump, tstat, rad cap, hoses, etc etc.
So, for the past couple of weeks, I'd been listening to this squeal coming from under the hood. It would get louder and louder as the truck warmed up.
Well Saturday, I was coming back home and it threw the belt and overheated on me. I pulled over and the belt was over by the battery, still in...
