Question about 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe
On my 2004 suburban I bought new in 12/2004 I noticed at about 35,000 miles a rattle and knock in steering wheel/column.
At 45,000 I had intermidiate steering shaft replaced and this solved the problem for about another 40,000 miles. now at 85,000 the same problem again.
Chevy dealership now says they R/R the shafe with a silicon type shaft that "should" stop the problem.
The first time it cost me $200. Now the cost is $350 at the local dealership.
If this is such an ongoing problem and has been for years, why does GM not solve this on the new vehicles??
Can my shaft be relubed to solve the problem now? Seems like a more simple and much cheaper way to do.
Thank you for your advice.
I believe they are sealed units but you can ask the dealer to be sure
