Hey guys. I have a quick question. I have a 07' NNBS ecsb 5.3 gas 4X4 stock tires, gears, all that stuff. I just turned 20k on it. Anyway my problem is that it is so F-ing loud inside. Is this just how all the NNBS are? and the other is that when I am on the gas it has almost a clinking/ grinding sound in the front drivers side. sounds like the engine. Dealers told me it was the afm, but its not. my dad had afm and his doesnt make the noise. So, if any of you guys have a clue or know what the problem would be let me know. Its getting rediculous for me. thanks in advance.

not bad at idle. just when you are on the gas. its hard to describe. its like something is grinding almost. do i just let it go, and when it takes a shit let the dealer deal with it? they told me they cant even hear it. Which is ironic because EVERYONE else I know car hear it. i have exhaust on it and i had the new viper 5901 alarm with remote start installed and a level kit.

Well the dealership is not going to help you on the situation at all any way. But you said it sounded like a grinding coming from the engine. Does it happen all the time or just when its a cold run or what?

I would not think any of those parts are going to effect what you are talking about.

if ur in park and step on the gas does it make the noise, if so, check to see if ur exhuast make have a leak where the y pipe meets the manifolds. or possibly a bearing going in the pulley system, its hard to tell from not seeing it.


if its only when your moving, check the nuts and bolts from putting on the leveling kit. and grease everything in the front end

Its not just when its cold. It will happen if I have been driving three mins or three hours. I already though of the exhaust leaking(I was kind of hoping). So I guess ill try to see if anything else is loose. its a real pia. plus i can only get it to do it when im driving.

also are all the nnbs really loud inside. just in general? mine is loud as hell. not the exhaust but like road noise. thanks for all the help guys

i found my grinding noise. It was the OEM exhaust crossover vibrating on the Fabtech impact bar.

This doesnt help you but i too have a fairlry loud cab. My front end and rear squeak like a piece of shit too.

check your wheel bearings and everything up front, also look at your driveshafts to see if they are rubbing anything
