SOURCE: 1996 Chev 4x4, short cab, long box, unstable when hit bumps

sounds like aeither a shock or a stabilizer bar or tie rods you can check all of these yourself , check the shocks by pushing down on the corner of your truck three times and it should bounce no more than 3 times and stop if it seems very loose and bounces alot they are usually bad, to check the tie rods and stabilizer bar just jack up the vehicle and then secure it with a axle jack or some type of block that will kep the vehicle from falling then just reach under and try to move the stabilizer bar and tie rods by hand and see if they move easily if they move by hand they are shot but they may not move and still be bad and you would have to have them checked at a shop

Can a bad deferential cause steering issue on 2002 envoy

I am assuming your mechanic was refering to the front differential and your vehicle is 4x4. If the vehicle is in 4x4 all the time you may notice a " hopping " feeling on corners from the front wheels. Otherwise, the differential should not cause steering issues. What type of problem is the vehicle experiencing that concerns you and would lead your mechanic to assess a bad diff?

I have a 1998 holden rodeo dual cab 4x4 and i have just raised it 2 inches wound up tausion bars and new springs in the rear i was told to raise it any higher i will have to spend alot of money to do so...

By cranking up the front end using the torsion bars you'll also be altering the camber adjustment of the steering wheels, which is not a good idea....You'll also be altering the handling characterisicts of the vehicle and it could become very unstable on the road....Watch out!

Wandering is usually caused by toe-out. Did the aligner use front wheel drive specifications for this rear wheel drive truck? A front wheel drive toes in when the wheels are pulling the car, but the front wheels on your truck drag back to a toe-out position if steering parts are worn. Try pushing the fronts of the front wheels apart. They should still be at least a 16th of an inch closer in the front than in the rear of the tires.

Wont shift back from 4x4 low, to 2x2

I also have a 2002 Envoy. Shifting to and from 4wh and 4wa can be done on the fly but shifting to 4wL has to be done stoped and while in neutral. Try that. Otherwise I'm afraid its a new computer for you. Its located under the left rear seat and you need a loan for one.
