  1. Hello, I have a 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid currently in a local audio shop for a big audio upgrade. The truck has been in the shop since April 30th 2022. The shop has hit a brick wall after installing the 370 Mechman alternator. The power steering is powered through the hybrid system. So when they went to install the aftermarket belt and pulley they rub a few hoses. Does anyone have experience adding an alternator to these Chevy hybrids? Or any suggestions on how to go about completing this sort of install? I will list the system components below if that helps. Thank you in advance! This has been an expensive lesson and journey in car audio. I won’t be purchasing a hybrid or doing any car audio for awhile after this.
