    Fox shocks for 2008 chevy express van awd 5.3l v8

    Heh thank you for the response. I'm looking at the bottom mounts on the stock shocks. Totally different than what you find on the fox shocks. I don't think the fox shocks will work on the front Fox does make a clevis mount for the bottom. I think the shock that fits the front of our vans is...

    Transit AWD vs Express AWD vs Transit Quigley: which one for me?

    I think the two biggest adavntages you will get by upgrading to a Transit (AWD or Quigley) is the ability to have more headroom with a medium or high roof, a longer van with extended versions, and the ability to carry more weight with a 3/4 or 1 ton van. You will likely get a little better gas...

    Express/Savana Swing-out Tire Carrier DIY Starter

    A couple of my thoughts on the rear swing outs. I have been thinking about this for a while for mine. If you are planning a side mount ladder (similar to Alumness) you could incorporate the rear ladder rail into the swing out hing mounts that bolt to the rear door hinges. Instead of latches to...

    Gnarvan AWD Express build.

    I have a 5" lift (3" suspension and 2" body lift) I am running 25mm offset wheels, but have 1" wheel spacers so essentially a 0mm offset wheel. I have barn style doors, I don't think my wheel setup would work with an unmodified slider door (especially with a factory inside door panel).

    Side ladders are stupid: CHANGE MY MIND

    Anybody notice the movable ladder on the Winnebago Revel Sprinters. It has hooks on top to grab the roof rack anywhere and suction cups on the bottom. It hangs on the back door when not in use.

    The G80 limited slip has nothing to do with ABS or traction control. It is completely mechanical.

    Adding a Tilt Steering Wheel Later?

    I have not been able to determine the difference with active brake control. But it is likely something to do with measuring the steering wheel position. Do a search on car-part.com you will find the right column used.

    Adding Cruise Control to a Chev/GMC Van

    No need to rekey, just swap your current lock cylinder into the new column.

    I ordered mine used on eBay.

    Adding a Tilt Steering Wheel Later?

    It is possible I did the swap on mine.. Active brake control is StabilTrac (traction control). If your van has it, it will be in your RPO codes as JL4.

    Adding Cruise Control to a Chev/GMC Van

    On mine no other parts were required just the dealer flash. I did swap in a tilt column at the same time, but it is not required for cruise control. The air bag attaches to the steering wheel so the existing one will go on the new steering wheel. I am not sure if it possible, but after...

    GM fullsize AWD Van Info thread

    I have a 2010 and 16" wheels do not fit so the change is after 2008 and before 2010.
