  1. im going to try and keep my SS and do a long, over budget resto to it for the next 3 years. rust has taken its hold. in the mean time I need a work truck. im looking for (and having little luck finding): rust free/very little surface rusty GM full size pickup that will make it back to Illinois without any issues. 7000 max. firms. flights are cheap, ill fly anywhere within a 12 hr drive of Chicago. prefer anything but standard cab. prefer 2wd. prefer anything with a 4l80. other than that, im pretty flexible. I found an ideal 2500 in Georgia but the
  2. i for sure agree, and that was an idea i kicked around but 2500s are expensive when theyre in good shape. i liked the idea of heavy duty everything but no diesel. currently i think that would be playing my weakest hand as i would have to keep all SS stuff for myself instead of selling for a running truck, as well as buying a rust free 2500, and still need to part out the SS. if i had the money i think thats the route i would go, but for now just having a reliable vehicle is the most important part. the sheet metal for the cab is less than 300, id need maybe $20 in sand, but paint will be f
  3. hey guys, I need some advice. ive been wrestling this decision since the brakes went out in October. I don't know what to do with my truck. 03 ss, mostly stock, runs great except for transfer case bushing issue and now needs every single brake line, fuel line, and hard trans line under the truck. every last line is questionable. I am also completely unwilling to just stab ni-cop through all the rust and stuff and kinda hope for the best. the truck also needs inner/outer rockers, cab corners, and most of the bed is rotten. I have the time, I have most of the skill, I have the room, a
  4. To my SS brothers

      I’m getting a real bad vibration at speeds between 55-60 MPH I feel it right under my feet anybody knows what this could be ??? And what would it cost to repair this ???

  5. hey guys, in the middle of a situation with my ss. a few weeks ago i started getting a rumbling throughout the truck on coast/decel. i checked under the truck and found tons of slop in the drivetrain that appeared to be at the input yoke of the rearend. so i limped it up to my friends shop, he started getting into it, and he found that the output of my transfer case had damage, the seal was shredded, (which explained the oil marks on my driveway) and there was some gouging into the housing. so we pulled the transfer case, it wasnt all that bad on a lift with some long wobble extension
  6. so which transfer case is in the 03 ss?? turns out my issue wasnt the axle, the transfer case output bearing/bushing has had it.
  7. so my rear end has a ton of slop in the pinion and unfortunately we have to rebuild the thing. i dont have 1600 bones laying around to replace the axle, and thats what theyre going for around here. question is as follows 2003 silv ss, g80, 4.10's. what SIZE RING GEAR IS IN THE AXLE?! i cant find any other way to narrow it down without measuring. from my searches the 10 bolt can have either a 9.5" or there is a smaller one too?? wtf? any help appreciated.
  8. im tired of this truck sitting in my driveway. i love it, but i just dont drive it enough to warrant letting it keep falling apart. this is the longest ive ever held onto a vehicle, and the most mileage ive ever put on a vehicle with no major issues. i love my baby. gotta love her enough to let her go to someone who will bring her back to where she needs to be. the good: i would drive this truck cross country RIGHT NOW if the exhaust didnt fall off on NYE. we sent it from chicago to georgia in like october, towing a car back, and got 14.8 mpg. this truck does everything well except
  9. i have one in a frame. everythings for sale for the right price LOL.
  10. Need the g80 w 4.10's, preferably disk-to-disk. Will pay for crating and shipping if you are more than 200 miles from Chicago and willing to ship. I am desperate to get this thing fixed please post up if you have one or call or text 773-206-1968 thank you very much John. I have access to a million and a half rear ends with 373s but nothing with 410s. Could I just install a different gear ratio in an all wheel drive Silverado? I can adjust the speedo with my tuner. Would that hurt the truck?

  12. I know theres a million people that do it, who is the sss member that does it and upgrades with led's and all that stuff? also interested in having the headlight switch panel etc upgraded to led's. any help appreciated!
  13. 99 escalade 16"s fit, with a bit of clearance to the rear calipers . And they look way better than what I had. Yay!
  14. were due to have 3-6" of snow on Saturday, and I currently have my 20" chrome ss wheels were re-chromed, so the inside of the wheel is bare aluminum, and im deathly scared the salt will destroy them. I have a set of snow tires/wheels that ive used for many years, but the tires have had it, and I think i'd rather just buy a new set of wheels/tires (used) instead of new tires for those ugly wheels, and the price seems to be about the same. my questions are as follows: I bought a set of these, powdercoated them, added tires, and went to install them, and they don't clear the rear brakes
  15. 2003 ss. does anyone know which brake package code(s) would work with no reprogramming?
