    Every time I make a turn (left or right) in my GMC Sierra, I hear a knock in what appears to be the steering. I had the knuckle replaced, but it still does it? Any ideas?

The noise you are hearing is coming from the inter. steering shaft. You can lube it as per bulletin or replace it. When you lube it use a tefflon based grease 1. remove the shaft 2.streach it out 3. install grease 4. make a plug and stick it in the end where you put the grease 5. push on the shaft to collapse it and the grease will forced throuth the splines of the shaft coming out the other end 6.reinstall

P/s pumps replaced 3 times in 75000 miles


Probably not usual, unless you are having very rough driveing and constant steering load on the system. Some of the linkage may have been bent, or not lubricated so that would also increase the load on the pump. The second two pumps are probably aftermarket or rebuilt?

My 2003 GMC Jimmy has excessive vibration when accelerating hard or at speeds of over 80 km/hr - 50 MPH. Could this be a u-joint issue?


If the vibration is in the steering wheel, and you are in 2wd then chances are it is not you're u-joints. I would get other car on a Lift, check ball joints and steering linkage for play. You may jut need to balance your tires

    Loud popping noise when turning.Seems to be coming from the drivers side front wheel


    this could be a bad inner axle joint check to see if the axle boot on the left side is torn or missing also check the wheel bearings and tie rod ends by jacking up the front of the vehicle one corner at a time and grab the tire at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position and wiggle it back and forth looking for excessive movement in the tie rod ends then reverse your hands to the top and bottom of the tire and try moving it from top to bottom checking for excessive wheel bearing movement it shouldn't move in or out at the top or bottom

    Tailgate 2002 sierra


    I had the same problem with my 2003, no adjustment on mine, I resolved the problem by lubricating all the movable parts inside and outside the tailgate, both locks, and the internal linkage, and joints, I loosened things up with WD40, waited a few days and did the final lubrication with white lithium greese. Any other liquid greese will also work fine. dont forget to follow up everyone few month.
