Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
4x4 73,000 miles, garage kept. Driver side wheel. Clunking noise, sometimes..when turning left most often, sometimes over bumps in the road. Also a dragging noise, nothing dragging however. Brakes new. Needs power steering flush. the dragging noise is not as deep almost sounds grinding/dragging Any ideas?? Thanks
It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

Its probably the intermediate steering shaft. The shaft where it goes thru the firewall is known for clunking on these trucks. GM makes a lube kit to fix the noise. I don't have the part number handy, but the parts guy at the local dealer will know what you are looking for.

the hub bearing is bad.the reason it stops when you turn the wheel to the one side is because its taking presure off the bearing

Normally the axle does have some end play. A bad bearing usually will give you rumbling noise and have up and down play if it's bad enough.Normally the seal will leak as well. Before you begin taking everything apart, get under there and put your hand on the axle tube nearest the brakes and try to feel where the noise is coming from while someone moves the bed. Listen carefully as well and check anything and everything for movement. The "hand on it" method will allow you to feel as well as hear the shift. I'm almost betting it's not the bearing.
