New here with a '05 SSS AWD

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I'm new here but iv had my Silverado ss for about a year and a half now. got it with 112k but had a lot of maintenance work done to it so it should be good to go to start adding some power. What are some common bang for your buck parts I can look at getting? And some common or rare issues I should look for? thanks in advance!

thanks, and iv been looking around but it’s more just simple bolt on’s. i don’t know what to look for as like fuel injectors rocker arms etc. i want to do a dunk run with it stock then add a new air intake, camshaft and jba headers then tune.

General opinion, for years around here, has been that a tune is your best "bang for buck" mod.  If money is tight I would start with a CAI and 160* thermostat, and tune.  I use Zippy, FTW.

Problem areas are 4L60 trans and front diff.  Shift kit and Vette servos, at least, for the trans.  Swap to full synth gear lube in the front diff.  At 112K, the front f=diff has probably been re-built at least once.  Just keep your ears open for bearing whine.  That's usually the sign that it's going.

for the bearing whine, i’m hoping i don’t hear it but does it occur when you are on the gas? or should it be heard regardless when in motion?

I think that it can vary, some, from truck to truck.  Mine got a little louder on acceleration but was loudest in a right hand curve at 45 MPH and  a little faster.

 

It will be obvious.
