    I would show you my 2011 Tahoe, but I can't upload a pic in the comments lol. You said that you thought you should have went with 24's. Well mine has 24x14's on the McGaughys 9 inch, and I wish I would have went with 37's instead of the 35's I have. The tires just look a bit small with the wheel size and the amount of lift. Definitely go with 37's if you decide to get the bigger wheels!


    U always get an alignment after replacing suspension parts!!!!

  • John Mayoral

    I think you should do Silver decals on the Tahoe, I saw the back shine in the sun making a shiny sheen and the contrast looks stellar. I would of replaced all tie rods and keep any good ones as emergency back ups.

  • Dan Charron
    Dan Charron

    ok, so when you lift you are adding weight and travel on the suspension. so when you also add angles and drops. could we be looking as well as the body mounts? maybe they should get upgraded as well. I say this since I remember my tired old 560000K's truck when I added a plow the body was moving more and what we did is the OLD Canadian fix. Hockey pucks. as well do you have an excel shaft brace? and how are the drive shaft links? I remember a chirping and jumping like that when I put big tires on my old truck it was then the drive shaft stretch.... adding a new shaft that was a bit longer fix it...

    I love watching your videos man! After seeing you fix up the cat eye I slapped a 7 1/2 inch lift on my 2016 Silverado. I’m trying to convince my wife to let me get another project truck but she ain’t with it😂


      That is awesome! lololol youll get one!!

  • 03fordman330

    Also I would look at the front hubs. Since you are putting more stress with the bigger tires. Good luck.

  • Irishawn

    I could be wrong, but I’d just spray some kind of silicone lubricant/chain lube on the door latch


    I love all ur whips but I think u should have up sized on the Tahoes rims/tires..

  • Presto Is A Killa
    Presto Is A Killa

    that popping could be coming from the drag link or the pitman arm. thats what happened on my silverado. i forget what they call it, but its basically like a pitman arm on the passenger side that gets loose too. check that. might not be obvious right away

    How are the idler and pit-man arms? Notorious on GM's for needing replacement between 100k-125k'ish miles!


      this 1500 has a rack and pinion but i found all the bushings worn out in the video i just posted!

    I found that the radio fuse inside the vehicle builds up a very small layer of corrosion sometimes and that makes the radio shutoff and signals not click.

    I had a similar issue but with my f150, i had to get longer end links. I guess the bolts were not long enough and made that clunking noise. 4wp replaced them with specialty ones for like 150-200$

    Keep the wheels and put 37s on the Tahoe

  • szachtb

    Also why do you keep hitting the automated car wash after making a video about never going to car washes.

    Next time find a drive train shop. Usually fix axles for around 50 to 100 dollars..

  • Mark Rodriguez
    Mark Rodriguez

    @Ryan Mayer the whole losing sound in the stereo and blinkers it's the amp wiring that runs to the fuse box I had an issue with my 07 Yukon...the sound would go and come until finally it stopped and it had shorted out...you have to remove the whole fuse box and on the body beside the brake booster is where my wires were shorted out at the body was rubbing up against the conduit until it rubbed up against the wires...I just cut and replaced new wire and it was good...hope that helps...good luck...wire you will need is 10 gauge and 14 or 16 gauge wire...

  • Matt Marcum

    There’s only 5 tru to size lifts for gm ifs trucks superlift,mcgaughys,fts,cognito,bullet proof Any other brand like rc,bds,zone your gonna have shity cv angles Also when you wiggle your wheels to test the tie rods set a camera in your seat aimed at the steering wheel I noticed in mine it turns the steering wheel as your wiggling the tire I been through all of this with a custom 4 company brand 11” lift on 38” tires lol

  • Matt Marcum

    $30 more you prolly coulda got a lca and balljoint included Been a lot easier lol

  • Michael Anderson

    You should do a bronco

  • Jorge Cobian

    Ryan, you should use some grease or anti seize on the threads of the C clamp to help save it from binding when putting all of that torque. It will help but mainly save your tools.

    I hope you put that ball joint in correctly. They are elliptical. The “dot” on top goes to the inside or outside. Truck is looking good.

  • lbhamlo

    Nice. Been there with the ball joints on my previous RAM trucks especially bad on my 2004, replaced most every thing on the front end. Other than that, never had a problem with anything else.

  • Trevor Disinger
    Trevor Disinger

    in my opinion Ryan id never just let the caliper on the charger or any vehicle just hang there, I usually set it on a milk crate or something for less added stress on the brake hose. just some constructive critisizim I love your videos and watch them daily for years.

  • Josiah Bartlett

      @RYAN MAYER Best way I found a check it is turn the key forward to free the wheel and have someone crank it back and forth really quick


      I’ve seen a few of you guys comment that! I’ll probably replace that anyway too!!!

    Always enjoy your informative content!

Thanks again for all you do making your videos and I look forward to seeing your next video!

  • Scott Buffalo
    Scott Buffalo

    A tech tip for you. On the ball joint press put a far amount of grease on the threads of the shaft. It will press easier and will help prevent binding

  • Dice Man

    When I worked on my Wrangler I just ripped right into it and didn’t even pick up any instructions. I like your style!! We get an idea of how to install something and it might take a little longer the first time but you’ll be doing the same installations many times so learn as you go along. After a few builds your a master mechanic without paying all that money to take like 9 certifications tests. That’s bogus yo. Nothing special but I graduated from a 11 class one year auto school, Lincoln Tech. I had a 4.0 average but it was sort of a joke. I had to take 9 certification text I think to become a mechanic but they cost like $200 each. Fuck that shit. I know enough bi-ach, I don’t need no stinkin badges. I just got really stoned everyday and it was pretty cool. In one class you actually built an engine from scratch

  • ima veiga

    An alignment could fix the popin

  • TNoutdoors

    If you leave the ball joint nuts on but loosened when you break it free with the hammer, you won’t drop the entire knuckle on the ground.
