    Hey i was wondering if anyone else has a problem with a rattle in the front end. Mostly at high speed, exit ramps etc., there feels like a slight rattle like someting is loose. I also drive an 04 3500 for work and it has the same problem but ot near as bad as my truck.

    I have a 05 2500hd crew cab that I have had for 4 months and I hate driving it because of the noise.The truck has 1500 milesand has been to the dealer 2 times. I am going to leave it and tell the dealer to fix it or its staying. I was told it was a steering shaft.

    Front end rattle.

    Just had my 04 2500hd in for this. They grease the steering shaft with some special grease. Supposedly from 03 on they have installed a redesigned steering shaft but it has not fixed the problem they have been having since 99. Any way my rattle is gone who knows when it will come back.

    I have 2 2500 hd's. I had one fixed. and I'm pretty sure it was a steering
    shaft problem. My other one does it too, so that will go in. I think that they had to replace a seal or boot. The steering just feels loose in the shaft, & your just waiting for the steering wheel to come off in your hands!

    Same thing with my HD. :nod: The inner shaft rattles around and makes it feel like something is loose in the front end. I just got my truck fixed by GM. They knew what it was right away. It took only 30 minutes to replace it. I guess GM has revised the design and should be fine now. :D
