you need to choose another alignment shop, maybe their not accounting for You being loaded all the time, but a good front end Tech. should be able to set it right.

I would second the idea of finding another alignment shop. Our guy always asks me how much time the truck (02 3500 Dually) spends pulling a trailer (36'GN)and then he compensates the alignment for that. We have had good success as long as we keep the tires rotated. Glad to hear that your truck is still rolling! I think these Duramax's are a higher mileage motor than a lot of people realize.

I know alot of it has to do with the constant loaded all the time plus turning with the wheels lock to lock just to make the corner. We have tried different shops and techs even took it to a big truck shop last time and they did the best job so far.

Far how many miles are left in the motor its hard to judge you see guys on here all the time pop motors before 150K & 200K. So I feel blessed in having a truck make it to 300K

2007 Classic. 36,700 miles. Bought new. Bone stock the way GM intended.

Replaced the transmission lines that were leaking at the crimps.
ISS chatter replaced once and still making noise.
Needed new tires 2,000 miles ago because original ones started to dry rot.
Replaced batteries a few months ago, old ones were still in good shape just old.

Did I mention I love my truck!

PS my truck pulls like a monster truck and also hauls a.s.s.

I had just about 200,000 miles on my 07 Sierra. Was a great truck with very little maintenance beyond routine. Next guy should be able to get that much again.

You should really look at the nicktane fuel fitler adapter with the cat filter and the PCV reroute.
Fuel filters filter down more and cost half of the GM ones. Win Win for your pocket and injectors
