100% positive that the clunk is coming from the steering shaft? I've heard others say they had a clunking sound and found that it was a bad torsion bar crossmember bushing.

truck has 10k on it and the clunk feels like it originates around my right knee inside the steering column??

Ok, it was just a thought. That sucks if indeed the new redesigned shaft doesn't fix the problem once again! :mad:

Was the new fix the newly designed shaft or was it the outdated "grease and stroke"???

My clunk also seems to be fixed with the old shaft and a new lower bearing.

I have had the clunk since day 1, very minor, i just ignored it, didnt happen all the time, only feel it at low speeds when turning in parking lots and such.

I have 50,000 miles and I called the dealer today, They are going to warrant me the steering shaft, scheduled install next week

I would have never known about this with-out being a memeber of this forum!

Thanks!

It ain't always the steering shaft. Mine was something else after they replaced I.S. twice and the steering gearbox . It turned out to be the lower steering shaft bearing.

Lower steering shaft Bearing??

Can someone tell me where exactly it is and how to check it? I've got a long post on this situation already. NEW designed ISS has fixed lots of the looseness but now the clunk is definitely more accentuated. Dealer wants to do a second(3 total includ. orig.) steering box and maybe a pitman arm. All this in the last 4 months and it all started at 500 miles. I do think the ISS helped out but maybe lots of this is a combination of lower steering bearings and crappy ISS's....

I had the shuttery feeling in the steering from day one, but opted to ignore it if all they would do was grease it. Took the truck in on Wednesday for the new shaft after reading about the revised TSB on a post.

Two days later and it's like Night and Day:driver: , I can't even begin to describe the difference that IM shaft made.

Also on a side note: I learned when I took it in that GM has a 16,000km grace period for alignments. The truck was pulling a bit to the right so they realigned it under warranty. I unknowingly brought the truck in with 15,987km's on it,:rolleyes:
