If your in the salt belt soak the bolts with penetrating oil before beginning
Tell me about it(Amazon is where I will get my next compressor and shocks)godsdiablo said:How'd dorman workout for you huddy? I was thinking Delco but there price is always nuts
Here you go. Still haven't installed mine yet. Trying to do it when wife doesn't need the truck for a few hours. The OEM one works, but leaks out air after the truck is shut down for 30mins or so. So I'm not in a rush. Will let you all know how the install goes and how it holds up.grayparatrooper said:have a link to one you bought?
Installed these on the rear, but they are passive for the air ride. I still have the OEM ones on the front. These saved me half the cost, as I didn't do the install and the dealer and other auto shops wanted $1400+ for the OEM rears. You can find Monroes or OEM ones for a bit more on Amazon if you are going to install them yourself.grayparatrooper said:i also need new shocks at least maybe compressor. Have a link to shock you bought?
Hmm that's oddHuddy said:Well I hooked up the Dorman compressor and it functioned fine. Issue is that the mounting bolts stick too far out so I can't tighten the two closest ones. Guess I need to get some washers to tighten it up? Not so plug and play. Ha
Yeah the upper bolt is fine as that snugs up to the frame as you tighten, but the two "easy" access bolts aren't snug. I sent an email to Dorman to ask WTF. Not sure it was designed that way to accommodate a variety of vehicles?? But definitely not the same spacing as the OEM one I pulled off. I'm sure I can figure out a way to jerry rig it.the cadillac man said:Hmm that's odd
Ha! No I'm just a simple salesman. Imagine it wouldn't be that hard if you bought the rubber tubing and ran it up to the engine area. Concern would be the effect of heat from the engine.the cadillac man said:I plan on making it but haven't got around to designing it(any help would be great if your good with cad)
I also am looking for people to help with the testing of it after I get it doneHuddy said:Ha! No I'm just a simple salesman. Imagine it wouldn't be that hard if you bought the rubber tubing and ran it up to the engine area. Concern would be the effect of heat from the engine.
