Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab
The truck has low knock when it turns i think it might be the steering linkage but i dont know it has been geeting worse though
All full size 1999-2008 GM trucks & SUVs have or will have this problem. A redesigned Intermediate Steering Shaft was released in 2008. It is the permanent fix. If you are in warranty, squawk to your dealer. If not, the part is easy to replace.
I used the after-market Dorman 425-176 part. It sells for about $50 if you are a good shopper. Instructions are in the box. Only 2 bolts need to be removed.
1) Park your truck straight and level. Set the parking brake.
2) Bungee the steering wheel so it will not turn.
3) Disconnect the battery and wait 15 minutes for the air bag system to discharge.
4) Remove the 2 bolts, one in the engine compartment, one under the dash. Wiggle the old part up and out and the new one in.
5) Replace the bolts.
6) Connect the battery, Remove the bungee before driving.
Being a stiff and fat old man, this took me 2 hours with rest breaks. Next time I could do it in 1 hour. Young and slender might finsh the task in 30 minutes.
