On a two wheel drive the shaft should only angle down if this a used truck I would say the rear
axel was hit on the side that the drive shaft angels away from and the alignment should be checked out.

    also you can jack-up the rear axel so both rear tires are not in contact with the ground blocking the front tires.have someone seat inside with out getting under the truck have the person start the truck and put it in drive watch the drive shaft and the rear tires. see if if the tires and drive-shaft turn with out shaking I have seen new trucks with the drive shaft is not perfectly straight but a slight

    bent tire rime made it vibrate at slow speeds.

My 1989 Chevey Celebrity started shaking the other day the front part of the car, not like the front end is messed up but it shakes.


Could be a wheel, tire, or axle shaft.
You could rotate the tires front to back and see if the vibration moves.
If it does the problem is one of the tires or wheels.
If it stays in the front, its probably one of the axle shafts. It could also be a hub bearing or something loose in the suspension. But a loose suspension part would normally show up when you hit a bump rather than on a smooth road.

Mine does also. told to try a genuine GM delco oil filter (haven't done that yet though) If it subsides after warmup, it is a sticky valve which I am told is too expensive to fix unless it just bothers you too much. Other than that, it's a GM thing and get use to it. :(

Knocking in steering column in 2003 gmc sierra


Yes it will. GM has new replacement upper intermediate shaft for around 55-70 dollars depending on where you buy it. Took about an hour to change. Instructions with pictures on internet. Lock steering wheel so it does not move or you will break air bag sensor wire. They sell a pin to insert into steering wheel to lock it into place. Hope this helps
