summit racing got a good chuck of my money...
top end gasket set, lifter guides, lifters, assembly lube and other msc. parts.
and a call to a class action lawyer.
I had an AFM lifter fail in my 5.3l in my 2015 seirra with 125k miles. The lifters are back ordered and I cant operate without a truck in the spring. need hay, need to be ready to transpo sheep if needed during lambing season, need feed, what if the tractor breaks down? etc. GD the last 2 weeks have been stupid. I have a $25k brick in my garage and as soon as we get back from a trip ill be buying a 25k truck because that's what I need to replace the brick in the garage. i'll wait for the lifters and fix it and sell it to get as much as possible out of it. I cant do a delete because we have emissions inspections. best offer I had as is was 10k. ill spend about 1k fixing it and should get 20+ out of it. dealer just laughs at you and that will be 10k if you bring it here. F them.
going to buy a nice 3/4 ton 08 to 2013 suburban or yukon XL with a 6.0 in it. much cheaper than finding a nice excursion, better on gas and 10 years newer. just saw an Excursion sell for 37k with 150k miles, but in very nice shape. F me , it's just about the worst time in history to be forced to buy a truck. been wanting to upgrade to a 3/4 ton as we need a bit more torque over mountain passes and we want something that will last a long time, that we can sleep in the back of. the 'burb will be perfect I think. I'm mad at GM for this shit, but nobody else makes what I want, and don't want the headaches of a diesel.
