Question about 2006 Chevrolet Silverado
Wondering if its finaincially feesable to convert my v6 2x4 silverado to 4x4? Lift kits ussually include shocks, spindles, BOTH front crossmembers. Where "K" brace is for all the old timers. If I buy a lift kit the only thing I'll have to get from a salvage yard is : (imm. shaft, tailshaft extension housing (for transfer case), transfer case MANUAL, not electronic, crossmember, front diff., halfshafts (front axles), lower control arms and torsion bars. and driveshaft. Not sure if I would need to do anything with PCM> Would this be feesable? Or am I just wasting My time and money?
A lot of labor. Such conversions are done by shops who know what they are doing. Might ask them. Would be easier to buy a 4x4, or a 4x4 with a bad engine where you could swap your engine in and go. Thjen you'd have a parts truck for spare parts.

I can't imagine going to all that much work when buying a 4x4 would be easier and probably cheaper given the availability of 4x4 trucks.
One thing you did not mention that came to mind was anti-lock brakes.
As for the computer, a transmission with a transfer case may not work in a system without the transfer case. Not sure on that point.

that could cause the vibration but I have also seen brand new tires out of the blue seperate or through wheel weights and cause dashes to vibrate so I would eliminate that completly from the equation.It wont cost you anything if where you had them installed does lifetime balanceing.

the torsion bars run from your front lower a arms back to a cross member under the truck. torsion bars replaced the spring under the front of a GM 4x4 when they went to independant front suspension on their 4 wheel drives.
