  1. So sorry for the delay Ace. 2003 LS Was completely stock when I got it earlier this year (besides the drop in the ass) LED & Tinted Low Beams & Fog Lights. Diode Dynamics Switch Back Turn Signals. Black billet grill, with LED light bar behind. Wrapped bow tie in carbon fiber. Shorty gun metal antenna. Going to paint the front bumper & chrome to finish murdering it out Black LED tails & third brake light. Debadged. Painted dash trim a subtle two tone. Pioneer Double Din. (This angel severely exaggerates the Metallic.) Silver & Blue gauge needles, US Speedo black gauge cluster with chrome ring, Escalade gauge face. (Just need to get around to putting in the white LEDs & swapping out the stepper motors Originally ordered a Carbon Fiber cluster but promptly returned it when I saw the awful thing they called “carbon fiber”. Replaced all the speakers with Memphis. Two Memphis 10”s in a Probox. Replaced the useless NON-folding middle seat with a center console from Tahoe. Blue LED’s replaced all stock interior bulbs. Plans: Paint front end, wrap rims gloss black, CAI, black headliner, paint calipers & underbody, oil catch can, hood, Roll pan, Dual Side exit exhaust, tonneau cover, tune Basically going to look like this when I’m done... And eventually a hood
  2. The maintenance replacements you’ve done are exactly what I’m heading towards on my 2003. What brand did you replace the suspension with? How’s the stage 3 Cam?
  3. I sprayed the center console & dash trim with that Dupli-Color Vinyl & Fabric. It covered super easy & turned out great. I tested it out on an extra pair of sun visors to see how it worked with that kind of material & it looked very good. So I’m interested in the outcome of the brand you’re trying! I used that Dupi-Color Vinyl & Fabric to do a subtle two tone on the dash: Gloss Black on the inner section around the double din & gauge cluster, with Black Spiral Metallic to match the body on the main outter (This angel seriously exaggerates the Metallic.)
  4. Had no idea the suspension was so shot. I took it to a shop & they said I need new Control arms & ball joints so that’s found to be a few hundred... Just found this broken mount also, so shit is just stacking up. planning on replacing as much of the suspension as possible. Any suggestions on the route to take? Truck is super clean with only 150k miles and the shotty suspension is the only issue. thanks so much
  5. Thanks so much for all the replies and help. @DCAIRNS: mine is a 2003 LS, NOT an SS. I’m sorry I should have said that to begin with. Yes the drop shackles were already on it when I bought it. The ass end seems to go up & down very easily (like my ex gf) So I was thinking something was not right and When I saw the center bolt it just looked off to me like it was missing a nut or something and after reading,searching, & looking at countless images I still came home short so that’s why I made the post. Besides one or two, all the other Silverado sites seemed to have died so I really appreciate you 2-3 people that are still on here and trying to help thanks so much
  6. I just bought this truck and noticed the center leaf spring bolt...is it missing something? It seems like a nut should be there but I don’t see any threads, then I thought cotter pin... I don’t know And can anyone tell me what kind of shackle is in the second picture? I am absolutely ignorant when it comes to trucks, so please bear with me.. any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much
  7. Guess I joined at the wrong time haha
  8. Looks great!! What’s next on your agenda?
  9. I am working on the same thing. That rust encapsulator works great! Looking forward to seeing finished pics!
  10. Got a picture of your box?
  11. Welcome to the site. I recently joined as well. I’m only a couple hours north of you. Did you figure out what the issue was you were having?
  12. Hey everyone my name is Evan I am 31 & from southeast Georgia. Big into music, guns, racing/shows, & anything to keep busy. I recently got out of the tuner scene, selling my 03 supercharged 6 speed tiburon (third one I owned) I built for road racing & decided to get another Silverado like I had a few years ago before it was totaled. I’ve only had this 03 for 2-3 months. It was stock except for being lowered & having the new 5 spoke rims on it. Whoever had it before took very good care of it. Since I’ve had it I’ve done the routine things like removed all badges, 20% tint, replaced the head, tail & third brake lights with tinted ones; LEDs in all upfront, installed fog lights, black billet grills, wrapped bow tie in CF, tailgate brake LED strip, locking tailgate, replaced jump seat with center console from tahoe, installed pioneer double din & two Memphis 10’s in a pro box. Black with chrome rings gauge cluster bezel, Escalade gauge face, blue needles with silver base, replaced stock gauge bulbs with cool white LEDs. Herculiner bed liner I’ve yet to put down. Overall it’s a very clean & great truck. I’m only interested in making it as aesthetically pleasing as possible & not as fast as possible. With that being said, I’ll probably only put an Air Raid intake on it, dual side exhaust & that’s probably all. The only real plans I have left is to finish murdering it out painting the front end & rear bumper, wrapping the rims gloss black with chrome outlined bow ties on the center caps, paint calipers, replace headliner with dark grey material, sound deaden some areas, finish wrapping pieces in black and/or carbon fiber, eventually a tonneau cover and hopefully I’ll be able to come across a used hood for sale one of these days! Looking forward to being a member of this site. Cheers!
