    It is the E-85 enabled 5.3. I would like to at least add a leveling kit of some kind. Also exhaust, re-program, etc. at some point. Mostly this is the household work truck and future toy hauler.

    What kind of front suspension does it have? If it has torsion bars like my Z71 you can just crank those to level the truck out....you'll need a alignment after though.

    the new 1/2 tons dont have torsion bars. they are coil springs.

    also beware, i tried to program my moms '07 with a diablosport and it completly fried the ecm

    you didnt do something right or something was wrong with the ECM to begin with.

    no it f*cked it up royally. the ecm was fine, it had maybe 3000 miles on it at the time. I think that diablosport just had not had all the bugs worked out at the time. the engine in it is the new vortec max 6.0 with vvt. i did everything exactly as i was supposed to...

    I'm glad to see that they finally went to coils in the front, torsion bars are pretty old school.

    The 3/4 and 1 ton Chevys have IFS in the front, not torsion bar. Ford and Dodge use solid front axles in their 3/4 and 1 tons.

    i know they are IFS but they are torsion bars, you dont have to have solid axles to have torsion bars. hell, all gmt 800 suv's (99 1/2-06) have torsion bars front suspension.
