Having problems with your 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LTZ ?

I have a 2007 1/2 ton GMC Sierra. I pull boats

\015 I have a 2007 1/2 ton GMC Sierra. I pull boats for a leaving. I pull a maximum weight of 3000 lbs. to be legal. For some reason, my front tires were cupped on the inside and outside. The local dealer said the reason was the weight of the boat would cause the front of the pickup to be raised a little higher and cause the cupping of the tires. I have talked with other dealers and many owners of GMC and Chevy trucks and not a single one agreed with the comment of the local dealer. Also, I have inspected tires on other GMC and Chevy pickups and have not seen any damage to tires like I have. The local dealer said I needed to carry some sand bags in the back of my pickup, in front of the rear axle. What is the problem and how do I take care of it? Thank You John\015

I've never seen this problem, but the guy who said you needed sandbags is probably correct. Other than that, the front suspension should be checked.

Vibration I am having a few issues with my 1992 GMC Sierra 3/4 ton. It is a 3/4 ton extended cab short box with a 350 engine and 2 piece drive shaft. Not sure what type of transmission but it is an automatic with overdrive. One problem I have is when I pull out onto the highway and "floor it", the transmission does not always shift correctly and will RPM's will redline.

GMC pickups I have a '99 and a 2006 GMC with the same engine (5.3L ), transmission, and rear differential (373). The trucks pull my boat very differently. The 2006 does not have the power the 99 displays on the hills we travel. The 2006 has to shift down more often, scream up to 5,000 rpm to gain speed back, shift up, loose speed and go thru the process again. Local Chev dealer cannot find any problems with the ' 06. ??? What can I do within the warranty to improve the '06 ??

I own a 99 GMC Sierra 3 door and a new 2006 4 door. Both have the 5.3, automatic, 373 rear end. The 99 out pulls the '06 noticable when hooked to my boat. What gives? What can I do to the '06 to wake it up? It is under extended warranty. I love both, but the power difference is baffling to me and the dealership.


This problem will be best dealt by the dealership ship. since you are under extended warranty you need not worry about that ... GMC Sierra

Looking at purchasing a used dodge 4x4. Mostl will haul lite loads but want the option of pulling RV and boat. My question is what is how much of a difference in fuel economy between a 1/2 and a 3/4 ton diesel?


They both get about the same mileage. But if you are going to pull an RV then if the RV is very big, I would suggest the 3/4 ton. They both get around 15 mpg. The 3/4 ton is not that much stiffer as far as ride goes. ... Dodge Ram 2500

Hi I'm George in Colorado :-) My 1971 Chevy 3/4 ton workhorse was fine yesterday and I towed a 2.5 ton load of sand. When I tried to pull away from the house the yesterday I couldn't.
