Over the weekend I am swapping out the Inner and Outer Tie Rods, Upper Control Arms and Lower Ball Joints on my 2008 LT Avalanche.

So far, I have the drivers side Tie Rods replaced, and I am working on getting the Lower ball joint free from the lower control arm.  Those crimped edges are a pain in the back side to get off.  :o

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

So that thread says 8.3 seconds on a 2WD like my Z66. Stock 4WD will be slower. I have a CAI, Custom HP Tune, and Magnaflow high performance exhaust and Dynatech Long Tube Headers, 8.3 seconds seems a bit slow.
That info came from the car and driver artical on the avy back in 2001....
Do a run and get out the stop watch.

What about those runs peeps did @ drag strip? they come with time slip right?

I found a paint bubble on the rear fender, soooo I guess it's time to find a shop that will strip the paint off in certain areas. I can buy front fenders no problem, but rear not a chance

Got supplies to do rust repair on a front fender yesterday... cut out everything bad to good solid metal... worked today, but I'm all set to start the repair for real tomorrow.

Today... I guess I have become more aware of other Avalanches in the area.  I saw a later model LTZ this afternoon, it had all the exterior proximity sensors, and another one while I was driving, a Z71 that could easily be mistaken for a brand new truck out for it's first drive.  Very shiny bright red and new looking.

I also have what I might guess is the very beginnings of ball joint problems.  Tiny little shake going over road defects.  I'm going to lube and inspect the front end this fall.

Underside plus entire ceramic coat in one day. Where'd you hide the Delorean?

I'm curious, cause I had my AV detailed today and was given a cost of $900 to $1,000 for the ceramic coating which I believe they said was lifetime. With the detail I had done today they gave me an entry level coating that is suppose to last about 6 months.
With 70,000 miles and paint chips I can't see $900 plus for ceramic coating.
Will you share your cost and expectant time your coating is suppose to last?
