Question about 2006 Chevrolet Uplander
Hi there! I have a 2006 Chevy Uplander....I used to be a mechanic in the military but these newer vehicles boggle my mind!
Here's what I have observed:
Driving down the road, even the smallest rut makes the frame "shake" a bit...sounds like tie rods could be going - would this be feasible for such a newer vehicle?? I don't drive it very often - only 37,000 miles on it. If not tie rods, what is the chance it could be the ball joints going?? Please help!!
At such low milage i seriously doubt that it is the tie rods unless you have a problem with the vehicle wandering down the road. with loose ball joints you would have a alignment problem as well and you would notice a cupping on the tires which you did not mention. I would start by looking at eithere the strut or strut mounts and or the shock and shock mounts for looseness or cracks. also make sure your tires are not over inflated this would cause the shock of the ruts to be amplified to the frame.
