Apparently all of those letters I keep getting in the mail about class action law suits about the 2015 (and similar) Silverado trucks have some merit. My AC isn't cooling (now that the weather is warm) and close inspection revealed a cracked high pressure AC line at the compressor. I figured this out after putting gauges on it and finding 18 psi on the low pressure side (it should be around 35 psi). It seemed to be leaking freon almost as fast as I was putting it in. Ultimately, I ordered new high and low pressure lines (from the compressor and to the compressor), an expansion valve and drier assembly. Add in freon and new belts and I'm looking at about $550 in parts...give or take.

Apparently these trucks are known for compressor issues, high pressure line issues and there's a weld in the condenser that's known to crack. I sprayed soapy water on the condenser and I didn't see any bubbles. Tomorrow, I'll tear it all apart and swap out the lines. I'm hoping this doesn't turn into an all day event....

I've also learned that we now have "stretch fit" belts that don't use an idler pulley. I hadn't run into this before and sadly I didn't find it in time to get the proper tools delivered. However, my neighbor is a former dealer tech and a newly minted Matco dealer. He happened to have a few of the tools GM used to send with new belts, so he gave me a set of those so I can hopefully get the belt on without too much drama.

I'll keep you posted.

I'm looking for a set of 4 center caps for 10 spoke SS wheels or the stock 2002 16" wheels. Turns out they are the same cap. Unfortunately, I sold my 16" wheels long ago.

I have a set of OEM 10 spoke Camaro SS wheels that are looking for a new home. I don't believe these have center caps, I haven't had them out of the box in a while.

I'd rather not ship them, but I can if someone wants to pay freight.

$575 OBO

I bought this and bolted it onto the car, decided I wasn't sure about ground clearance and pulled it right back off. It's like new and has never been run. I don't have the box so I don't really want to ship this one. Located on the west side of Columbus, OH.

$175 OBO


I have a set of Pagid "Orange" brake pads for the Stoptech ST40 caliper (D609 pad). They were run very little and then I drove them on the street for a couple days before swapping them out for something more street friendly. These used to be over $400, they look to be a little under $300 now. I can mic them, but these are virtually full thickness (like 92% or more left).

$200 plus freight

If you love F-bodies and drag racing, autocross or road courses....go do this event. I've been a few times and you can't find a better group of gearheads and friends to help you play with cars.

It's in Memphis and the info is on the event page.
