Im almost positive they were just "gas charged", not actual bilsteins?? I could very well be wrong tho.

I'm a torsion bar guy myself. Coils eventually sag and face it torsions are more costly to build and I can count on one hand how many I ever saw broken. I broke one on my '70 Challenger in the early '80s since I jumped a snow bank with 10" of snow still on the car---snap . Leaves you a good bar though!

Around here in NJ you can't find a GMC or Chevy DMAX on any lot. Not an '08 or '09 nor anything. Guess they sent them to "truck areas".

unhook your steering wheel position sensor and your yaw sensor. You will get a CEL on the cluster but you can kill them with the EFI. I could also be wrong on this. i know if you unhook the sensor it will disable it, but the CEL does come on. I am not possitive if you can kill the CEL with EFI but I am assueming you can.

They should. They actually come with Tenneco shocks which are made in Mexico and utterly worthless. Well, 5100s are good value and fit well with the rest of the truck which is quality.

no you cant unfortunately.

And no, its not the check engine light that comes on. Its the brake and ABS lights. Stabilitrak has nothing to do with the ECM. Those lights are commanded on from the EBCM. Unless you 'hack' the EBCM or instrument cluster, the dinging and ABS/BRAKE lights and "SERVICE STABILITY SYS" in the DIC arent going to shut off.

Just make a simple relay/time delay circuit out of radio shack parts to actuate the "stabilitrak off" button on the instrument panel every time you turn the key on...its as easy as that...and you dont have any dinging, SERVICE STABILITY SYS messages, and your ABS wont be disabled.
