there is a problem with the steering shaft going to gear box 2 out of 10 trucks have this problem gmc and chevy ive done a few, its a dealer part, replace that first then see if the other rubbing noise is there, but the knock noise is the shaft, i had 2 with about that mileage they were out of warranty, good luck start there first.

Testimonial: "thanks this helps alot . one more thing though do i need to replace upper or lower shaft or both?"
its due to low/no fluid level in the power steering reservoir.Check the fluid in the power steering. If it is low the car will make noise when you turn the wheel. the internal parts gets rubbed hard and noise occurs. refill the fluid and let it reset for some time then try it will get the fluency to move smooth and noise will get stopped.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution
if helped.thank you for using fixya.

you have bearings and a turn signal switch.. these go bad. you can replace you whole steering column wih a used on vs replacing the partst to save money. this will save you $300-450

Are the front brake pads ok? Some have squeal indicators, it is a tin plate that touches the disc (without damaging) to warn you that the brakes are worn. On the initial stages it will happen more so on slow cornering but will quickly get louder over a matter of days.
Check the pads for thickness, should be min 6mm

it could be low on powersteering fluid, its just vibrating through the colum so you could check that first, or it could be the steering wheel shroud the plastic that covers the colum behind the steering wheel, take it off and see if it still does it,check fluid first though...hope this helps
