This has confused me greatly and I've checked all grounds and everything I have in my limited knowledge of car audio and can't figure it out.

2. Now the second one is an air ride question... I have noticed in order to level the truck out I'm running about 30psi in the back and 70 psi in the front..... If I run the same pressure front and rear the truck has a nasty rake! I may be a child of the 90s but this chevy isn't.. no rake wanted here. So I mounted the bags in the stock location of the rear springs but I still feel like it should be able to sit lower with the frame notch...

For ur #1, I had the same issue when I went to a non_GM HEI. I ended up installing a noise suppressor. That seemed to take care of all my issues
This is what I used

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.
