  1. Yes, cv joint. Sorry for the sloppy use of axle. That's the reason I think either my viscous coupler is bad, or there's some other problem with my t-case. When I broke my cv joint, I rolled down a hill backward while in Drive on throttle. Whatever the issue is, I've got my transmission guy pulling it apart today to diagnose.
  2. @IndyNova thanks for the reply. I am more concerned that I lose all forward motion when I break a front axle. That tells me that my transfer case is stuck in front wheel drive. Have you ever broken a front axle and been able to still drive? I've read the manual for the t-case and it would make sense that all power is transferred to the rear if the front has a free spinning tire/broken axle. Unless I am misunderstanding something.
  3. Hoping someone can help me out. I have an 03 SS, and I think I have a problem with my transfer case. I have a sloped driveway, and the first time I jacked up the front end to do brakes, my truck started rolling backwards. I just thought that was how the AWD system worked. After doing some more reading, I see that after a front axle break, you still can still limp it home. I broke my front axle over the weekend, and lost all motion. I had to put my emergency brake on in park because the truck rolled backward. I think my transfer case is only putting power to the front end.
  4. I was able to write a new OS into my PCM that supports flex fuel and a 3 bar MAF. It was a little sketchy at the beginning, but I figured out how to work HP Tuners well enough to make it work.
  5. So....after some fiddling with HPTuners, installing my ethanol sensor, and wiring it to pin 56 on the blue connector, I've found out that my PCM doesn't have flex fuel turned on as an option. The fields are there to change, but it doesn't actually read ALC% or change fueling tables. The solutions vary, but there seems to be only one real one. 1. I can try and find a P59 tune with the same OS as me (12593058) that has flex fuel turned on from factory, or 2. (The only real option because 1. doesn't exist) Buy another PCM with an OS that supports flex fuel and use that as my TUNED
  6. Ok, I need to change my stance on this head unit. The customer support is horrible, on top of that, their return/replacement policy is ridiculous. The reverse camera freezes the entire unit and the AV In only works sometime. I contacted customer support about this, and their first response was, do a factory reset and see if that fixes it. Their second response was, try reloading the OS. Their third response was the most unrealistic....uninstall the stereo, ALL wiring including the backup camera, and send it all back at my expense. They would take a look at it, and either send me bac
  7. I got my switchbacks from headlightrevolution.com , they are the "GTR Lighting Carbide Series 3156 / 3157 LED Bulbs, C/K Compatible" I haven't had any problems at all with strobing or any other issues with them. They were pretty expensive, 40$ a set, but I think they were worth it. I'll take a short video and upload it if you're interested. I haven't been too active on here because no one is really paying attention to this thread as far as I can tell.
  8. It's been a busy weekend, but I was able to spend a few hours on the truck. I got the rear brake rotors, calipers, and pads replaced along with the front pads. I did a brake fluid flush while I was at it. I also got a tonneau cover to hide the peeling bed liner. The more I look at the bed, the more I think I need to just replace the entire thing with an unmolested one. It's really twisted, has some holes in the bed, and is just in bad shape all around. The truck is going to be painted after I get my kids truck done, so I'm not worried about a color match. I'm sure someone has don
  9. I got the stereo installed, along with the dash cam. I've got a teenage driver, so the dashcam is a preventative measure to keep him from being dumb. The stereo is an android unit with odb2 monitoring abilities. I also installed a cellular hotspot in the center console (hidden) that connects directly to the stereo for internet access. I can use the wireless signal to connect phones as well.
  10. I just installed this head unit in my truck and everything works well, and it's a stable unit. I've had other Android units in the past, and they weren't all that stable. I'm a computer geek, but I don't want to have to reconfigure my stereo every time I get in my vehicle. The large screen fits in the dash well, but the shifter handle blocks it when in park. Not a big deal unless you are trying to do something before you pull out, like navigation. I would suggest you get some sort of cellular hotspot, or set your phone up to automatically turn hotpsot on when you connect to the ster
  11. I believe that the rear springs are McGaughys, they sell springs with 2 cut springs on top, just like mine. I'm not sure about the torsion keys yet, but I know the drop shackles are Belltech. Unless there was some kit that mixed vendors, it looks like the previous owner mixed parts.
  12. Maybe I'm out of the loop, but has anyone heard of cutting leaf springs??? While I was replacing the rear calipers, I looked at the springs. There are only 2 full leaf springs on each side, and the other two leafs have been cut down to about 4 inches to keep the U bolts even???? It's very weird...I'll snap a pic tomorrow
  13. Just low and DRL lights Tail lights and 3rd brake
  14. low, high, and DRL on New cluster
  15. I got the new cluster, headlights, taillights, and 3rd brake light installed over the weekend. I also was able to get most of the "carbon fiber" vinyl wrap off the door handles, gas door, and tailgate handle surround. I also installed a resister into the blinkers to get rid of the fast flashing. I also did the Hi6 mod for the headlights and DRL. Now the DRL stays on with the headlights, and the low beam stays on with the high beam. I also put an amber LED bulb in the DRL, so it matches the blinkers. I'm debating on switching the DRLs to blinkers. The blinker housing the truck
