I have a '99 Chevy Blazer, 4WD. My problem is that the mounting bolts that attach the steering box to the frame keep breaking. Could I be missing some kind of shock absorbing washer when I replace...

I think something is placing a very high lateral load or stress on the box and that is the weakest point, hence the breaking bolts. So you should take a look at the other swivel or motion points in the suspension to find out what is fighting the movement of the steering box.

Call a dealer service guy and see if there is a recall or a technical bulletin on the issue.

How often do I have to change the power steering fluid in my 2002 chevy tahoe?

most people never do change power steering fluid at least not until power steering has a problem where you are forced too, but if its never been done, it would not be a bad idea.

4WD LO will not disengage what can cause this.

@ 2000 gmc: Exactly right.

asker: Also, it helps if you're rolling at about 2 mph with the steering wheels straight.
You cannot shift into 4LO with the wheels turned or when in a drive
gear. Also, it may be that you need the electric shift unit serviced.
It is not recommended to drive on dry pavement while in 4LO.

I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe with 286/60R18 dueler alenza . For two years I had a problem with it floating to the right . The only mechanic that could do a good wheel aliment on the the Tahoe work at a Chevy...

gregg it is best to allow a vehicle some right hand lead due top crown of most roads. road crown is designed to slope right and factory vehicle alignment usually follows slope. if u fall asleep or lose steering control of vehicle road crown" right float" will lead to ditch instead of oncoming traffic. if this really bugs u ask alignment technician to make left wheel .2 degrees more positive camber then right wheel and request caster be set no greater then .3 degrees difference between the 2 wheels request printout to verify. this should remove lead considering there is no tire pull. general motors compensates for road crown using caster typically but i prefer camber compensation

Can't get the old power steering pump off to install the new one

First of all why are you doing it? I am having an issue with my 02 Tahoe, 5.3, 4wd, that mainly when turning left, at any speed, usually when not on the gas, it is hard to turn. Feather the gas, and all is fine. Does occur to the right sometimes, but not as noticeable. I did order an new pump, and am changing it Friday night, Jan 2. I will let you know if you did not already complete.
