Question about Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
Hello. You are going to need to raise the vehicle up, remove the bottom ball joint, and the steering linkage to the driver side spindle. At this point, you need to consider if you want to continue; as after removing the linkage, your alignment may change slightly. This will cause you premature tire wear. You will need to get the vehicle aligned after you put it back together. The rest of the job is straight-forward, remove the retainers of the shaft, and drops it down.

There is already a Technical Bulletin which explain How you need to Proceed :-
Bulletin No.: 03-03-08-002B
Date: November 30, 2005
Rattle/Squeak from Front of Vehicle (Replace Lower Portion of Upper Insulator Assembly)
2002-2005 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade EXT
2003-2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV
2000-2005 Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe
2002-2005 Chevrolet Avalanche
2000-2005 GMC Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL
This bulletin is being revised to update the correction and parts information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-03-08-002A (Section 03 - Suspension).
Some customers may comment on a rattle or squeak type noise coming from the front of the vehicle.
The front shock absorber plastic pilot ring may be wearing out, causing the shock to misalign in the insulator.
DO NOT replace the shock. Replace the lower portion, P/N 15834275 , of the upper insulator assembly using the procedure listed below. This new insulator has a taller plastic pilot ring that is attached to the metal sleeve to aid in the proper alignment of the insulators.
1. Remove the front shock absorber. Refer to the Shock Absorber Replacement procedure in the Front Suspension sub-section of the Service Manual.
2. Remove the lower portion of the upper insulator from the shock and discard.
3. Install the new lower portion of the upper insulator to the shock.
Important: Be sure to center the shock in the frame bracket and tighten the upper mounting nut when the vehicle is on the ground.
4. Install the front shock absorber. Refer to the Shock Absorber Replacement procedure in the Front Suspension sub-section of the Service Manual.
