    found the problem:mechanic:

    i did have my transfer case rebuilt last year, it was losing fluid. turned out there was a clip in there that had chaifed a pencil led sized hole in the case.
    according to the guy who rebuilt it he said the dealer had new clips right in stock and it was a slightly different. apparently GM has had problems with these, but not enough for a recall.

    Then you would be a member of the infamous pump rub club.GM should be paying for your membership dues,but they won't.I hope your rebuilder also put that plate washer behind that clip,otherwise the same thing might happen again.

    My 2007 has slightly loose idler & pitman arms and I just ordered the support kit from Cognito. Check it out, it should fix the problem of these parts wearing out. http://www.cognitomotorsports.com/p..._Arm_Support_Kit.html?left_select_reset=reset
    Got it for $216 from Alligator Performance. My dealer wanted $800 to replace the idler & pitman arms so I'm hoping to solve the problem with this kit and save almost $600.

    Thanks for the info and link. I have actually debated ordering that kit for mine too. I put the new arms on myself last spring and it wasnt too bad and I replaced them with lifetime warranty ones from NAPA so all I will have in them now is my time if they wear out again. Cognito makes some pretty awsome stuff. Im looking at the 4-6 NTBD lift for my dually so I can put the fullsize rig wheels on it this spring. They are not cheap but def seem like the GM suspension experts.

    2002 2500HD 195,000 miles!! This truck runs, drives, and looks like a low mileage truck! It was a parts truck at a dealership where my wife used to work and was METICULOUSLY maintained. I have a folder of maintenance records/repairs about 4" thick that starts with the origional window sticker!

    BTW...I just recently bought it and don't know much about the particualrs of the 2500HD models. Do you guys have any tips, tricks, or common problem areas specific to this truck? If you recently bought one what would be the things you would IMMEDIATELY check, service, or modify?

    Should I make this a seperate thread?

    The Cognito kit won't fix an already loose or worn out part. It will keep a new part from wearing as fast.
