    If you haven't already changed your brakes have a mechanic check it as it may be your encoder motor not disengading.

Ignition wont turn steering wheel locked

If the steering wheel was in a hard turn when the ignition was turned off and the key was pulled, maybe it's just in a bind. Put the key in the ignition and pull the steering wheel hard to the left, then to the right while trying to turn the ignition.

My key goes in the igniation but it wil not turn.

Try pulling hard on the steering wheel (both right and left) and try to turn the key at the same time . Sometimes, when you turn the engine off, and the power steering pump stops, the steering column can bind on the locking device for the key.

2002 Silverado right rear wheel locking up.

You will need to have the parking brake adjusted to the minimum clearance possible and double check the shoes & drum while off.

It sounds as though the shoes are loose, they move forward, grab & unil you center the brakes by applying them and then they release until put into a bind again.

These usually don't get adjusted or even looked at since they are hidden inside the brake rotor hub on the rear wheels.

good luck.

When i turn my jeep to the left or to the right to make a sharper turin it seems to kinda stop and **** what does taht mean what should i do

If it's 4-wheel drive, it's a design fault and can't be fixed. It's due to the half-shafts in the front binding up when you turn the wheel hard right or left.

Noise from the front

Car will pull if brake is soon as your speed cannot overcome the amount of braking being applied. Be careful when examining it the rotor will be much hotter than normal. (sometimes will turn blue and warp as well)

Steering problem

If it is 4wd you may have a problem with your front differential. GMCs are known for having front differential axle seals leaking. If all the fluid is out metal parts may be binding.
