I heard the same...

Mike, I apologize for the conversation earlier, Debbie and I had just received out dinner and it was really hard to hear...

I hope it's nothing major, and I'm glad you still have the full warranties...

I'll see you this evening...

No worries...shit, you should just said "I'll call you later...CLICK". I hate to interrupt people at dinner. Sorry.

I'm sure it's gonna need a new rear diff...could just be the axle splines shimming...not sure. Going into ValMark at 7AM(ish) and have them take a look. Tonight was a bad time to figure this out...I have sooooo much to get done tomorrow, err, today. Oh well, hopefully they give me a nice loaner...oh who am I kidding...Impala, here I come

Well, today (April 21) is the 2 year anniversary of the day Penny was delivered to me. I sure wish I had spent the day with her...instead, she's sitting at the stealership with her differential torn up, waiting on Chevrolet customer service to tell the stealership to fix it. Poor Penny.

I know, I know...just a pain and completely unnecessary. Oh well. Nothing I can do but roll with the punches. I'm sure Chevy will take care of me when it comes down to it...they sure gave the impression on the phone that they are going to be quite helpful.

I really appreciate the help, carting me around, etc., on Friday. It meant a lot. You, Corey, and Joe were all awesome putting up with my venting and helping keep my spirits up

I spoke with Chevrolet customer service today...ValMark Chevrolet is not willing to work with them. Soooo...now I sit and wait for the local GM rep to do his investigation into this. Talked to my normal dealer, looks like parts take at least 5 days to get in. Looks like if I get it back by the end of the first week of May I'll be lucky...

Just sucks knowing that she's sitting outside, in the elements, probly gettin shit on by birds...not being worked on, and sitting at a dealer who I wouldn't trust to watch over a pack of gum for me. Can't go pick her up, otherwise the GM rep can't take a look or send someone to take a look at it.

Yes and no. Bled them two more times, got a bunch more air. However, they need to be bled with the Tech II scanner. I'll probly swing by Corey's in the morning and see if we can fix it real quick....shouldn't take but a couple mins to hook it up.

Well, this weekend was time for brakes. New Powerslot slotted rotors, Hawk HPS pads, and Russell stainless steel lines. I also repainted the calipers...the paint from the G2 kit was chipping off, so I sent in pictures to G2 and they immediately sent me a new kit since their products have a lifetime warranty that covers chipping. I'll be putting white "Brembo" stickers on the calipers, just haven't had time to order them. The old pads were completely toast in the front and getting close in the rear. Kinda surprising for 37k miles, but I guess you gotta pay to play
