    I have roughly 9000kms on my 2022 3500 at4 LB. From the very first drive off the lot I noticed how poor the brakes were. I had just come from a 2011 with OEM pads and original brake lines but that truck had easily double the braking performance. I originally thought the new trucks pads needed...

    When the owner of an off-road rig wants their truck or SUV to be more capable, they typically add bigger, more aggressive tires and suspension upgrades to create more ground clearance. Many off-roaders don’t think about the fact that adding bigger tires, heavier wheels and a suspension setup...

    Hi all, New guy here, looking for info. I read the read this first and read through the threads that seemed like I should and still have a story and question. I bought, back in 2015 or 2016, a 2007 flatbed dually 3500HD automatic with around 155K miles on it. I promptly put on what I...

First off started to find a bunch of leaks in the lines like the power steering and trans cooler lines of that nature so decided to replace them with OEM.

    Hey everyone, New to the page, recently purchased my second duramax (2004 lb7) and have been going through it getting ready for the road as it was sitting for quite a few years. This might be a silly question with a simple answer, are the front calipers larger than the rear? I purchased...

    I have a 2003 3500 4x4 with a dump body on it. my problem is the brakes seem soft or spongey like they have air in the system. I have replaced the master 3 times, the front calipers, all the pads and I have bleed the brakes exstensively. The brakes are barely able to stop the truck when its...

    I recently had a lift put on my '08 GMC, and now the front brakes are constantly squeaking even when I'm not applying the brakes. It seems like there is always pressure on the front brakes. I have to make a trip tomorrow and would appreciate any help.

    I have a metal on metal grinding noise that occurs when I am slowing down at any speed and intensifies when I step on the brake. Sounds like it is coming from the brakes but can not pinpoint it. I have had the brakes checked and have good pads. Replaced the back ones even though they were good...
