04 Silverado- steering noise

Recommended Posts

I have this gosh awful rubbing sound when I turn my steering wheel, especially to the left. The fluid level is fine, the wheels aren't rubbing, it sounds like it is coming from the interior of the truck. Any thoughts on what it could be in the steering column? And cost to fix it? I am looking at upgrading and I don't want to pass the problem off to the next buyer.

Ball joints? If you push down on the front of the truck and hear the noise it is likely the ball joints. I had the same problem with my F150, joints were still tight just dry, was able to get grease in with grease gun with needle attched and has been quiet for over two years now.

Pop the hood look at the steering shaft theres a bolt that goes through the shaft remove the bolt and move the steering shaft in and out. What happens is all the grease in the shaft settles to the bottom and moving it in and out helps

clock spring in the steering column.

or the trim rubbing on the steering wheel?

OOOH, how about this one. There is a bushing or a steering sensor towards the base of the column. I seem to remember this causing some weird noises.

The intermediate shaft causes a definite clunking type of noise especially at low speeds over bumps. I dont think I have heard one make a rubbing noise..
