Sounds as if you have some loose motion somewhere in steering. Note that after replacing worn parts you may just need an alignment, but could be bad ball joint also.

Rubbing noise in steering column


Omg worn out rotors will not make your steering wheel make rubbing noises. Some ppl should just read and not write. There is a rubber boot that your steering shaft goes through on the fire wall .sometimes it dries out .if you lube it with silicone paste .not petroleum based.it might help.do it from inside the car.under dash .or it might be clock spring .or rotary coupler in steering wheel. You might just try to lube .the hen if it don't work take to dealer.if it don't help.

this might help:
Here is the Technical Service Bulletin that maybe of help, worth looking into but can't guarantee that it would fix your problem Steering - Steering Column Clunking When Turning TECHNICAL Bulletin No.: 01-02-32-001P Date: November 25, 2009 Subject: Clunk Felt/Noise Heard From Steering Column, Steering Gear and/or Front Of Vehicle During Turning Maneuver and/or Steering Wheel Rotation (Replace Intermediate Shaft As Directed) Models: 2001-2004 Buick Regal 2005-2008 Buick Allure (Canada Only), LaCrosse 2000-2008 Chevrolet Impala 2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo 1998-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue 2004-2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Supercede: This bulletin is being revised to add the 2008 Buick LaCrosse/Allure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

I want to know if it is dangerous to drive with a squeeky clock spring in my van


Yes its risky. Dont drive with that noise from clock spring.Its indication of its failure.
I believe this is the "clockspring" -- the electrical cable inside the steering column that connects your steering-wheel-mounted electrical controls to the rest of the car. ("Controls" used be just the horn.) The cable wraps around the steering column so it can turn with the steering wheel. Sometimes it starts to rub and squeak.

2006 UPLANDER HAS STEERING PROBLEM... CLICKING NOISE when I drive slowly.. noise like (tik tik) This is from long time.. I went to my mechanic.. He tried to fix it twice but still same problem.....


The most common problem with the Uplander steering that could cause that kind of ticking is the intermediate shaft in the steering column. GM used to sell a lubrication kit that would fix the problem but they've discontinued it. The only solution now is to replace the intermediate shaft in the column. It's not too expensive and you should be able to get the dealer to do it for about $250.

Steering Column Slip


sounds like the vehicle needs to be serviced by a dealer. is it under 36000 miles? factory warranty runs 3 years or 36K whichever comes first. check with your local dealer or the NHTSA for related recalls or TSBs
