AXE.. Beautiful Truck BTW!

Just thought I would mention, when I did my cognito lift one of my sensors had just enough slack in it to occasionally rub the tire on full tilt and damaged the wire. At quick glance it looked fine, but a more though inspection revealed the issue. Problem was intermittent as well.

Incase you guys didn't know it, Chevy dealers CAN and most will service your GMC truck as well. I have been taking my GMC's to a trusted Chevy service department for years with no issues. And I agree service is my loyalty draw, these days you can pretty much by a truck from anywhere, but as we all know, all service departments are not created equal.

Not sure what kind of trouble you could have, unless it's not putting in the order or ordering the wrong thing. I walk in, tell what I want, they order it, and we're done until it comes in. If it's right, I sign the mountain of papers and if it's not, they either get it fixed or I walk.

I won't hammer on the dealer too much, even though the DEF leak it is likely due to careless install of the new parts. They have been very good to me over the years.


Case in point, I had some weird chunks of rubber coming off two Continental tires on my wife's 2015 Tahoe with only 22k on the clock. The dealer said they would warranty them for 50% of the value and I upgraded to a set of 4 Michelin LTX MS2 tires for $450. That saved me about $450+. Pretty good deal, I thought!

I have taken a look at my sensor wires and they are mounted out of the way an appear to have plenty of slack in them. The same trip where the truck had the DEF issues, I was in some pretty rutted out roads and had some clay build up on the tires, that could have affected the sensor wire, but it seems like they are solid and no cuts or tears.


I am going to pull the wheel and caliper and do a better inspection. I might just go buy the wire/sensor as they seem to be pretty inexpensive and drop a new one in.
