2000 Z71 problems
Heres the scoop fellas, I recently purchased a black 2000 Z71 LT ext.cab pickup, fully loaded, very nice,and very cheap($14,500). Ive been driving it for about 6 months now and i recently started having some problems. First off the truck came with a 6" RCD lift and 35" bf all terrains. I am pretty sure it has stock gears. Okay here are the problems:
My fuel gauge likes to decide when it is going to show the right fuel level, sometimes it will just show empty and then it will show half and then all of a sudden full. This usually happens after I fill up and when it feels like it.
The other day I was at the local sand dunes cruising around on about 12 psi. I was doing just fine until I tried backing up. Thats when I noticed my front tires are not engaging in reverse in 4 low or 4 high!!!! This is weird.
One More. Has anyone with a RCD lift noticed that the passenger side tie rod tends to rub with the swaybar when you turn your tires to the right, even though the sway bar extensions come with the lift. Well i did and likewise on my buddys 2001 with everything the same as mine(except the punk has a whipple and gears). This ended up totally tweaking out my tie rod on a hard off camber climb. After a quick trail fix with an on-board welder we were on our way.
Long story short- get home, order new tie rod ends, put um on, Cant turn right cause now the tie rod and sway bar hit hard. So now Im cruising the streets with a piece of welded angle iron on a tie rod that looks like a piece of angle iron. Needless my tires dont like it and I dont like the shaking.
Well those are my problems in life and if you took the time to read them God Bless. Thanks, Louis aka upNovr [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]
