At first I thought my cv joint was going bad on my 2000 Silverado (classic popping sound) then I turned down my stereo and realized it was coming from the rear drivers side. When I pump the breaks it will...


First thing to verify (since its hard to isolate these sounds without using this little trick), turn off
stereo and while driving forward or turning stick an ear (or two) out the driver's window and
make sure the sound is coming from the rear diver's side.

Assuming that the sound is coming from the rear driver's side, you'll suspect the rear
suspension components: rear ball joints, shock mounts (upper & lower), trailing arm. The only
way to check
your rear suspension components is to jack up vehicle, remove L rear tire, and look for
anything loose, or missing a bolt or a nut (this happens more often than you'd ever
guess - they vibrate loose).
Also: axle shaft bearing - worn/damaged/dry. Replace or lubricate (if dry).

2000 Cheverolet Silverado vibration at 50 mph.


Hello Doug.
There are a few things that will cause vibrations.
But the 50 MPH mark is the point where wheel balance seems to show up consistently.
Bad universal joints, a tire with a belt separated, a driveshaft out of balance show up at lower speeds.
Other less common items are brakes shoes and pads not fully releasing.
Best place to begin is the wheel balance though. You could begin by verifying the inner part of the wheel isn't built up with dirt or if in a colder climate, ice and snow.
Hope this helps you out.

Accessing spare tire on 2001 Chevy silverado, 2500HD


These are done with a series of extentions that are part of the jack and "spare tire kit". It goes through the rear bumper and is lowered and raised by turning these poles or extentions. This more than likely has a little cover over the hole nearest the license plate I believe. Let me know if you need anything else.

If it sounds like a rumble from back wheels it may be the rear end going out. Mine has been replaced twice with used rear end. You should be able to confirm it by looking at the rear tires both sides of tire for an oil leak or wet spot on tire or rim.
