Question about Chevrolet Tahoe
THERE IS ALSO A STARNGE CLUNKING NOISE THAT VIBRATES THROUGH THE DRIVERS SIDE FLOORBOARD. TOOK TIRES OFF...IT SEEMS VERY STABLE, NO LOOSE MOVEMENTS, NO WIGGLY TIRE JACKED UP. I HAVE FOUR GIRLS RIDING IN THIS THING. DONT REALLY HAVE THE MONEY TO GO TO A MECHANIC. NEW IN TOWN AND DONT TRUST ONE ANYWAY. ANY THING I MIGHT TRY?
I'm thinking a worn /loose steering ball joint or steering rack. As to trusting mechanics I would find an accredited steering shop and have it checked out ( not any old garage). Ask around for a good reliable shop and ask plenty of questions first .

Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly

HI, i would inspect the strut assembly for loose structure asap. i would also inspect the wheel knuckle and rotor and tie rod ends for loose fit as well. inspect thoroughly.
Its most likely the CV-joint assembly. the boot may have slipped off, allowing the joint assembly to dry up. i advise to inspect all the above before looking at the CV-half joint assembly and boot.

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.

caster,camber and, wheel bearings
have your car 4 wheel aligned this will adjust your rear caster and, camber.
have your wheel bearings checked

I have a 05 max and had the same problem, thinking it was the tires, wheels bearing, all that stuff. Found out it was the front axle. It will make you think you have a knot in a tire and vibrations are crazy! tends to go away at high speeds above 75 or more. Change it and problem is gone!!!!
