    steering wheels pop

    hey whats up guys i've have a problem with a small popping in my steering wheel when turning it isn't the same pop as a cv joint it's like something in the steering colum and was woundering if any of you guys have any of the same problems. I was thinking maybe a bushing or something might need to be replaced.
    thanks steve.

    Still have a warranty? Sounds like the intermediate shaft which is a pretty common prob on these trucks.

    I replaced my U-joints and I still have a (smaller) shake in the steering wheel.

    Can you coment more on the input shaft or provide a link for more info?

    The old temp fix for the clunking/shakeing wheel is to lube the shaft...around 6-8 months ago GM came out with a new shaft that is supposed to fix the problem. Here's the part number... I-Shaft P/N 19153614. It's a TSB not a recall so you'll need a warranty to get it replaced for free.

    This may also be your problem...

    Subject: Snap/Popping Type Noise Coming from Front of Vehicle (Remove Bolt-In Front Crossmember and Add Washers) #03-08-61-002H - (12/08/2006)



    Models: 2003-2006 Cadillac Escalade

    2003-2006 Chevrolet Avalanche, Suburban, Tahoe

    2004-2006 Chevrolet Silverado

    2003-2006 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL

    2004-2006 GMC Sierra

    2003-2006 HUMMER H2

    1500 Series ( Ton) and 2500 Series ( Ton) with Two-Wheel Drive



    Attention: This bulletin only applies to 1500/2500 Series 2WD and HUMMER H2 vehicles with recirculating ball type steering.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This bulletin is being revised to add the HUMMER H2 model. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-08-61-002G (Section 08 -- Body and Accessories).


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Condition
    Some customers may comment on a snap or popping-type noise coming from the front of the vehicle. This condition is most apparent during hard left or right turns at low speeds. Going over bumps while turning may also aid in producing this noise.

    Correction
    Remove the bolt-in front crossmember and add washers using the procedure listed below.

    Important: DO NOT slot the mounting holes on the crossmember as stated in previous bulletins. Slotting the holes has been found to be less effective and, in some cases, causes the noise condition to be more prevalent.

    Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in SI.
    Remove the mounting nuts, bolts and the front crossmember from the vehicle.
    Clean all the undercoating off the crossmember in the area of the mounting holes.
    Reinstall the crossmember with the bolts and nuts. On the driver and passenger side, add washer P/N 11509592, or equivalent hardened washer (see dimensions below), at each bolt head and nut location.
    Tighten
    Tighten the bolts to 120 Nm (89 lb ft).

    Apply an even coat of Anti-Corrosion Coating, P/N 12346501 (in Canada, 10952414), or equivalent, to the crossmember where removed. Overlap the original coating in order to provide an effective corrosion protection.

    Parts Information:
    11509592 Washer qty: 8
    inside diam: 14 mm (0.551 in)
    outside diam: 35 mm (1.38 in)
    thickness: 3 mm (0.118 in)
