What We've Been Up To Lately... RSS
We wanted to take an opportunity to document the electric fan conversion on our 2002 Sierra 1500HD since we often see questions come up regarding what is involved in properly completing the conversion on the 99-04 GM Trucks.
Speed Engineering recently released their driveshaft safety loops for 1999-2018 GM trucks (Silverado/Sierra). These loops are made in the USA and are spec'd to fit both 2WD and 4WD applications. A driveshaft safety loop is required per the NHRA rule-book on any vehicle using slicks and running 13.99 or faster in the 1/4 mile. Take a look at some of the pictures from the install on our 1999 Chevy Silverado.
The GM truck chassis benefits greatly from relocating the rear shocks to the rear of the axle when you're pursuing increased traction and controllable weight transfer. With the traction bars installed, our next step was finding time to relocate our rear shock position and install new Viking Performance double-adjustable rear shocks. These rear shocks will allow us to dial in rear suspension compression and rebound to exactly where it best performs.
Speed Engineering recently released their traction bar kits for 1999-2018 GM trucks (Silverado/Sierra). These traction bar kits are made in the USA and are available for standard axle location and flipped axle trucks. The addition of traction bars will help to eliminate axle wrap and the wheel hop associated with it. This results in more predictable launches and increased straight line traction. Take a look at some of the pictures from our install on our 1999 Chevy Silverado.
I frequently get questions and compliments on the paint job on my 1995 K2500 6.5L Turbo Diesel, so I thought I would do a brief write up on its transformation. Here's its story from 20-year-old forgotten farm truck to head-turning hauler!
