My buddy installed that on a 2000 Silverado. I'm not willing to do that to my Suburban since the wife drives it and the 'Auto 4wd' is a feature that is necessary.

I don't have that feature so it was an easy choice for me. I guess there have been updates due to problems for the actuator on your specific year as well. Hopefully a new one will get it working again.

So, I got new tires back in July and I went to rotate them today. The freaking place that put my tires on tightened the lugs so tight I can't get one of them off and it stripped the nut!!!!!!. seriously?! Is there ANY reason to tighten them that tight? Rediculous! I hope they can get the nut off....AND replacement shouldn't have to be requested as I will be paying them a visit tomorrow. Reminds me of the first time I changed the oil in the boat. The guy that put that filter on should be tarred and feathered.

A properly torqued (read hand torqued) lug nut should be able to be loosened with a moderate sized 1/2" drive ratchet. A tire monkey with an impact will get them considerably tighter than they should be. Have fun Monday morning.

it could always be worse......... you're simply trying to rotate the tires.

just think, you could have found the issue on the side of the interstate
just sayin'

then it'd be an angry German pulling into their lot on Monday morning with a flat tire...
see how this works???
ya gotta find the good in everything sometimes!

I've used Jim Grizzle Tire Company in Fort Smith Arkansas since the mid-80's ....... they only tighten with torque wrench!
sure, it takes two guys, but it's their policy! one guy holds the tire, the other guy torques it down.
I've never seen them short-cut service.
