    Dammit.. I think I’d be better off buying an older work truck then and leave the SS at my parents house...

    2006 Silverado Intimidator SS resurrection

    Never been an led everything fan and I’ve read a lot on aftermarket lights getting moisture inside the lens that’s why I only have the oem look on mine.. only upgrade to my lights were hids up front and led license plate bulbs
  8. Today driving around I noticed my truck made a whistling noise at around 2k rpms before shifting into gear. After crawling under and checking along the driveshaft I noticed some play on the carrier bearing assembly. I just lowered my truck 4-6 about 3 weeks ago and everything seemed fine no vibrations either. I’m thinking of replacing the carrier bearing assembly but cannot find the part # for it.. some say it needs to be pressed in and out and some other people say it’s just the complete assembly that needs to be replaced no pressing in anything.. so any of you guys that have done it which one is it??? Btw truck is an 05 SS 2wd 2pc driveshaft

    Input from anyone that has done flip kit on SS

    Just dropped the SS 4-6.... it rides really smooth for how low it is.. everything was pretty straight forward during installation only issue was my exhaust pipe hitting on the diff and bed so I had to cut it...
  16. Ive been wanting to go lower on my 05 2wd SS for a while I even bought the belltech shackle, hanger and keys for a 3-4 drop, Im only 2-2 now with shackles and spindles. After seeing several pics of 3-4 drops on SS Im not really convinced of the stance then I saw a pic of a member (kaze_v8) and read that he is at 4-5 drop with flip kit on rear and dam that truck looks bad ass and now leaning towards doing a flip kit on mine.. Ive never done a flip kit before and have no issues with notching the frame and I just got some 275 45 20s tires on stocks so my questions are 1.can I used the keys for another 2in up front since I have spindles already?? 2. When doing a flip kit do I have to do anything with the 2pc drive shaft?? 3.Will it line up correctly?? 4.Would I have to use shims? 5. Will the diff hit the bed?? 6.Will my 45s tires rub?? Thanks in advance and anything else that I should be concerned of let me know!!

    Centerline Tomcat wheels???

    Anyone on centerline tomcat wheels???theyre selling a set about an hour from me for $1200 with brand new nitto 421s i wonder how they would look on my truck 🤔

    Centerline Tomcat wheels???

    Yeah I figured.. the ones ima try to get are 20s on 275 45s... they should be lighter and look decent on my black truck

    Centerline Tomcat wheels???

    Yeah it seems like there’s small differences on some centerline wheels.. ima try to go and check them out on my next day off.. I’ve been looking for some archers since I’ve always liked them but can’t seem to find any around me.. I found these tomcats and I think they would look good.. specially lighter than the stocks also...

    07 SSS color options????

    Met a guy at a local truck meet with a red SS and claims that it’s an 07.. from what I’ve read, only 933 intimidators were made in 06 and about 100+ were sold as SS classics in 07... I’ve been looking for info to prove him wrong but I can’t find it.. were the 07 SS all black???
