Something finally broke

Well I have 100,000 miles on the truck now and something finally broke.

My drivers side door speaker blew.

I don't listen to music loud, maybe pulling it out for the B-Quiet install I messed something up that took a few weeks to show up? Either way I don't notice it, I figured it out when I did not hear the chime anymore. Now that I listen for it I can hear it really faint. Not bad for 100,000 miles.

Ow man, you got me, I was expecting a corkscrew drive shaft, or a stripped pinion gear....

Sucks about your speaker, but on the bright side, you have experience taking the door apart.

all three seem to be leaking on mine now, made my skip plates red... well pretty much everything underneath red, finally upset me enough to order a set of different ones, the ones GM replaced the stockers with didnt last even a year before they started leaking again

Are you getting lines that are not OEM? If so, tell me more!

My trans lines are leaking again as well. I found a local shop here that said they can make me some lines. Once I have some more down time I'm having some made.

Wayne, if you have an extra set of old lines you can ship them to me and I can have them made here. Just need to do mine to find out what the cost is. More then likely less then the cost of new stockers.

Here is my opinion. IF those braided lines will stop the leaking, IMO it's worth it. I have done more than $400 worth of damage to my brick paver driveway.

I do not have an extra set, but I could get some I think. What are they going to do different?
