Steering clunking noise when turning left & right

Steering Noise

Postby gab24m3 [OP] » Sep 14 2010, 8:00pm

I have a 1999 Chevy silverado 1500 4x4 120,000 miles. When I make turns(both wide and sharp) I hear a grinding noise and feel it on the steering wheeling... anybody else experience this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :D

How would I be able to tell if it's the ball joints or the Axle Shaft CV joints?

I'd say that if you can hear any noise while the truck is in park, it would be ball joints. Have someone steer it while it's in your driveway and stick your ear right up there and listen.

Just my thoughts on the matter........

If you feel a clunking in your steering wheel, I'm almost positive its your intermediate steering shaft. GM actually recalled this way back when. I had this problem when I bought by 2006 back in Spring of '08 and took it back a couple months later to get it swapped out. I guess the shaft was a faulty design which caused premature wear and tear and the lack of lubrication causes the clunk and vibration.

If it's a grinding noise, your wheel bearings are shot. When my hub went earlier this year, there was a very sharp grinding noise whenever I turned left (It was the driver's side that was the bad one). Hubs are pretty simple to do by yourself or with a friend, it's just gonna be a lot of banging to get the old parts liberated and out so you can swap the new hub in.

Good luck!

Yeah, that's the part. I'd just make sure that IS your problem before you go about buying it.
