    Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! On my wifes 03 2500hd there is a slight knock in the steering at times. Usually notice it while turning the truck. This truck just turned 15000 miles. Any suggestions on what the fix is? Appreciate any and all feedback.

    My truck was doing the same thing and I brought it back to the dealer and they fixed it... they now have a fix kit for it.

    It doesn't do the knocking anymore.

    My '02 K1500 with 16,000 miles is doing the steering clunk. It is supposedly the intermediate steering shaft that causes this. The old fix (tsb) was to remove the steering shaft and lube it up and reinstall it. From what I have heard, this fix only lasts a short time and the clunk comes back. I tried that link that JCKL posted above, but it said access denied. Have they come up with a permanent fix for this problem, or is it still the temporary lube job? I plan on taking my truck in sometime in the future, but I believe I am going to let it get a bit worse before I do. Somedays it seems to do it worse than others, and somedays it is barely detectable. It would be my luck it wouldn't do it at all when I visited the service department. :rolleyes:

    My 02 2500HD did the same thing. My dealer was great. I brought it in, and they replaced the Intermediate Steering Shaft. Problem solved... Good Luck.

    steering knock

    My brothers 1500 avalanche did the same thing and the dealer just lubed it up and the noise went away. I have an o3 1500 and it only has 3000 miles on it and I hear a slight ckunking noise. i'll keep you posted as to the fix.

    My 2002 2500HD did the same thing. First time they just lubed it. Next time I went back they replaced the intermediate steering shaft, works like new now.
