    I got a 04 Chevy Silverado 4x4 I was getting some squeaking out of the front left wheel sometimes now it is both front wheels. It happens about 3 times a day sometimes it is a steady squeak then almost like a faint clicking. I just replaced front pads and rotors thinking it was the rotors it went away for about a week now it is slowly coming back. What do you think this is? Calipers or wheel bearings? Also how do you know when your front wheel bearings are going bad. Thanks

    Also forgot to say when I am driving down the road my steering wheel shakes back and fourth a tiny bit side to side like you are turning the wheel. When I pull a trailer it takes some load off the front and then the wheel goes side to side more.


    Thanks

    It is for the intermidiate steering shaft. That is a old recall I couldn't get them to fix it under recall. Cost me $190.00 You will know when it is time you start hearing a awful knock in the steering wheel everytime you turn and go over a bump. It was the best 190 dollars I ever spent it drove me nuts for 2 weeks.
