Default 2018 Silverado..in the shop already..

After 37,000 miles I've managed to find the limits of my stock OEM parts! Took truck into dealer for an alignment and service when they called me to inform me I have issues..
-leaking water pump
-upper and lower ball joints are shot
-tie rods are shot

Trucks just got a 3.5" lift and 33s. Maybe the dealership is pulling my leg a little but everything they are fixing is under my extended warranty so I'm not out any money.. Either I drive this thing too hard or they just don't make things to last anymore these days.

On a good note, they gave me a 2019 loaner to drive for a week.

I've been scammed multiple times by a couple bad eggs in Parkway service department. As a result, I'm skeptical of dealership service depts. BUT if under warranty and not paying out-of-pocket, good deal!

Are your torsion bars maxed out? This can cause all sorts of ball joint and tie rod issues...

Me too. Most of the time the lifts and bigger wheels and tires cause the problem.

I had 2018 that needed a new transmission after 2,000 miles. Ball joints and tie rods at 17,000. They don't make them like they use to for sure.

The water pump I can't help with but I can shed some light on the steering/suspension.

The 3.5 lift is your problem. The only 3.5 kits I know of are just wayyyyy over stretched leveling kits. You will go through TREs and Ball Joints every 20-30k that way. I'm suprised you made it that long. Take a look at the angles on your A-Arms, Tire Rods, and Ball Joints. You will eat CV boots as well.

My 3500 duramax started have CV boot problems after a leveling kit, I accidentally totaled that truck, replaced it kept it stock zero problem with anything 250,0000 miles, maybe looking cool is just not good for the engineering

Did you install a differential drop kit after lifting on the totaled one.

1/2 tons of bigger? Lifted? Leveling Kit? Might not be apples to oranges. Iíve gotten 130k out of a set but that isnít/wasnít the lowest mileage Iíve worn them out so I was trying to be conservative, bud.

... Diclaimer: Iím just arguing because everyone has brand loyalty on here. Iíve owned a tonnnnnnn of trucks (mostly GM but Iíve had them all) in the last 22 years Iíve had a license and theyíve all been junk. just lots of generalizing here.

Love the disclaimer lol. I have owned Ford, GMC and Chevy but Iíd walk before I drove a dodge

First was an expedition with 4Ē suspension and a 3Ē body and mostly ran 35/14.50 boggers on it.
My current truck is an F150 with 6Ē suspension and 35x12.50 Open country mts
That being said my last truck was a Gmc Z71 with a leveling kit and 33x12.50 and it had around 150,000 on it. The ball joints started popping before I got to 100k but somehow made it till I sold it. The issue I had with that truck was the knocking lifters from the AFM system

Never had a tundra. Two Tacomas however.

They pay them engineers millions of dollars to design trucks and y'all screw up in hours. And then complain about how they can't hold up. Hell I just buy mine and drive um no problems at all.

But it won the jd powers award. The second time the door handle came off in my hand and had to be towed with transmission not changing gears it was gone. They just don't make them to last anymore. Warranty work the dealers love and probably do things that don't really need done. Just saying.

Wow, I’ve heard issues with the Chevy Trucks and Tahoe’s.
I’ve got a 2016 F-150 with 183,000 miles and haven’t replaced the spark plugs yet. It’s the 5.0. Guess I’ve been lucky.

After installing a leveling kit or lift kit an alignment is necessary. Leveling kits will throw toe out and sometimes will throw your camber and caster out. If you donít get an alignment done it will cause tires to wear unevenly

If you can buy a Tundra you will be done with problems. All I had was Chevy's and I have 8 ford work trucks. I have a 2014 Tundra and love it and will definitely buy another one. I have a 3" lift with 34 on it and 106K

To be fair itís a pretty true statement. Weíve slowly been switching over to Tundras for a work fleet, and our expenses just keep dropping. Weíve been running the Tundras to 250k without major issue except one 2014 model that lost the transmission at 223k. Weíve got 3 GMs left in the fleet, and all have had considerable issues before 100K. We used to only run GM, and would replace them at 200k, and usually had at least one transmission by then. My 18í Sierra is the newest left, and itíll be gone by 160k. Iíve got 112k on it right now. So far itís lost the brakes at 66K, but luckily I was only going 3-4 mph when I figured out I didnít have any brakes left. AC condenser is an obvious one, and that was at 50Kish, then an injector failed at 80kish.

I had a lot of trouble with my '15 when it got up to 70-80k miles, traded it in and went back to Toyota.

Update on truck:

Got it back and it rides like a covered wagon. Come to find out, my upper control arms are sitting on my bump stops and the lowers are maxed out..
This is what screwed up the suspension parts in the first place, due to the RC lift. Just ordered a better lift, cognito, and will be installing that hopefully this coming up weekend.

If anyone is on the fence about buying a RC "rough country" lift, DONT! Yes the parts lift the vehicle but it maxes out the factory suspension and tears it up quickly.

Sorry for your headache. Cheap now = expensive eventually.
