  • I can't agree. Pitch and volume are not related. Pitch is frequency (typically measured in hertz) volume is ... well... volume, (typically measured in decibels). My human ears have no trouble telling the difference between quiet high pitches and loud low pitches.

    Not an arguement, just have a hard time letting you mis-state facts.

    what are you talking about?

    You need to either delete #143 and #144 OR just #144 along with this one. Hey [non-permissible content removed], this is getting old real fast....ya know!!
  • Either that or let's just start all over. Here's the original post that started this whole subject:

    #127 of 148 Horn pitch by ckulus Feb 10, 2001 (04:16 pm) Hello, Is there a way to change the pitch of the horn in a 2001 Silverado 1500? If there is, then I have another question: exactly where is the horn?

    Titus- Being an audiology minor in college, I know what willimjo (post 143) is talking about. People in previous posts were using the word "pitch."

    "Pitch" has to do with frequency... (hertz level) high/lows of a particular sound. In layman's term we could describe these high/lows as soprano vs baritone.

    Now "Volume" has to also has to do with "decibel level"; in layman's terms that would be how loud something is... i.e. from a whisper to a shout.

    In other words, pitch and volume have two different meanings. (something a lot of people mix up) So the real question is was Clukus asking about the pitch/hertz level, or was he referring to "volume" or the decibel level?

    Until we have the answer to that, there's no point in quibbling over this any more. Btw, if this message doesn't help clarify a few things, let's just move onto another subject. Okay? Talk later. ;-)

    I know this has been beat to death but can anyone give me some info on leveling out my 2000 Silverado Z71 ext/cab other than lowering the rear end? I know it's suppose to be like this so when your hauling a load it will level out. But I don't haul that many heavy loads. It just looks bad to me. Theres about 2 1/2" to 3" difference (as you all know) has anyone cranked the torsion bars and how much does it take? How was the ride afterwards? I really like my truck, but this is driving me nuts. THANKS

    rear tires....screwin with the torsion bar for three inches will substantially roughen the ride. From the sounds of it, I would go with the 2/4 drop to get it level since the truck isn't a hauler why not get it to car height?

  • which 2001 Chevy truck to buy. 2001 SB,ExtCab 4X4 (loaded) 2500 w/ 5.3 or 1500 w/ 6.0. Don't trailer over 5000 lbs and will probally supercharge whatever I is the 2500 really going to last me longer due to the increased size of the individual components? I would get the 2500 with the 5.3 but it is not offered in 2001.
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,065
    neither is the 6.0 in a 1500 less you want to spend $40 for a C3.
  • mgdvhmanmgdvhman Posts: 4,162
    what I was thinking....unless he means the 1500HD?

  • eric2001eric2001 Posts: 482
    2500 didn't have 5.3 ever, and the 1500HD is a Crew Cab only, so must be the C3 - answered your own question?!?!
  • mgdvhmanmgdvhman Posts: 4,162
    2500 Did have a 5.3 99/2000.....Non-HD style body...7200 GVW 5.3 2WD

    2000 1500 GMC Sierra Ext Cab SB 4x4 Slt 4 dr 5000+ lbs empty. 5.3L 3.73 265x75R16 Michelins. Drove 450 Miles to Louiville Ky. Last weekend. Myself and Dad in the truck. Drove 65-72 MPH, got 13.7 mpg. I average per tank around 13 and range from 11-14.5. My 99 with the 5.3 got a good 2mpg plus better mpg under identical conditions. It was a 3 dr and weighed a few pounds less. Every motor and truck is different.

    If you are that concerned with gas milage buy a new 2wd ext cab 4.3L auto 3.42 rear end. And you should get 20+ on the highway.

    Best of luck
