  • So, didja?

The lube kit was fix #2 from GM for the loose intermediate steering shaft.  It's not a squeak-related cure.

I was just sitting here checking out my shaft. How do I tell if I have the new one or not? I remember there being a picture of the new and the old side by side but for the life of me I cant seem to find it.

I was worried that would happen so I ordered an extra kit. So far my problem has not returned  :A:

I have a question about this replacement.

I have a 2003 Z71 1500 that I bought used.  Lately, there's been a low pitch moaning noise when I make slow turns to either direction.  I'm wondering if it is related to this issue and I need the replacement or just have it greased.  The same type thing happened to a 2003 Tahoe I used to own and the dealership said they pumped the steering column full of grease and it corrected the problem.

Any ideas?

Well, it's hard to describe a sound in words.  I don't know what it sounds like when a power steering pump is low on fluid, though.

It kind of sounds like the sound you hear sometimes when you barely press your brakes and you get that low pitch moaning sound.

Man it's really hard to put sounds into written words.

No, that doesn't sound anything like it.  That sounds more like pressure being released, this is a low pitch moaning...maybe imagine a whale sound...but more "automotivey" sounding.

Replacing intermediat steering shaft
« Reply #43 on: 09/02/07 09:06 AM »

Has anyone done this repair? If so do you have a step by step instruction for it? I would like to do this myself if possible. The stealer wants $200.00 for the repair.

Thanks

Does anybody know if you replace the shaft is that a permanent fix? I ask because Summit Racing has a performance on for lifted vehicles and larger tires, it cost $227.00. Does anyone know what the stack one costs?

Thanks

The stocker is in the $70 range.  The $220 one is no better and suffers similar issues.

OK, reading some more threads on here gave me a suggestion of a way to describe the sound it makes.  It sounds almost like a tugboat horn. 

I checked my power steering fluid today.  It was slightly low, so I added some to bring it up to the full mark.

Seeing as it was only slightly low, I don't think that was the issue.
