Are your hub bearing assemblies OK?
You would think the dealer would get it right, i would take it back to them and explain, tell them to align it right... It shouldn't do that.

Yep, Bearings, sway bars, rims, etc...that sure is related to the ISS..yup.  :jacked:
As for the "get over it" comment...wuteva, if you dont get replies to your threads, maybe try explaining yourself better, or BE PATIENT. Jacking threads = Not Cool.

You need to take your av back to the dealer and make them  fix it, talk to the service manager then the casket manager

Once again this is why this kit was made.


Yes it does help the slop in the steering, actually that is what the kit was originally for slop.

I never had slop in my steering, it was just a clunking in the front end. The new ISS fixed this.

Some of these threads can get pretty long. Some have been running for 10 years. Whenever a member sees or feels a post should have it's own thread or is taking the subject off track the moderators will be glad to help by moving the posts and in some/most cases start the new thread. To make this easy and in my case possible send me a PM and include the number of the post in question. This will definately help target and fix the problem. This site really does belong to all of us, we all had a hand in making it and we all can have a hand in keeping it a fun and informative site for all Avalanche enthusiasts. Thanks

 :thumbsup: Careful MS03..."Some" people think its OK to thoroughly come in and Jack a thread, and then proceed to get offended when someone suggests they start a new thread for a non-ISS problem... :4: haha. Thanks for the suggestion, would be greatly appreciated if possible to clean up.

As for the lube Kit, I didnt use it, but I did re-lubricated my OEM shaft before putting it back in, after having 2 bad Dormans. It has no slop in it, and no clunking since. I had a friend turn the wheel side to side by less than 1 inch and the lower end of the shaft moved even with the smallest steering wheel movement, so thats good. But mine never had slop, it just had a subtle clunk sound at stop lights on/off brake pedal and over small bumps on smooth roads. My main problem is the noise the shaft makes against the rubber boot in the morning. I must be lucky to have a good OEM shaft, my truck has just over 80,000m now.

I have that rubber boot noise when its colder out, i figured it was the steering wheel rubber but your saying its the ISS rubber boot?  Can we grease that?
I don't really have slop in my steering just the annoying clunk sound, and it does wonder a lot on windy days...

If it is clunking it is loose that is why it is clunking. As far as Dorman they have a known issue since they started having the parts made in a different country AKA China.


BTW this kit is not made any longer, so the best bet is to get the redesign shaft.

PS I did not want to often anyone with the made in china comment, but it is what it is.

unbolt the boot from the firewall,slide it back and lube the black plastic area on the ISS. the sqeaking will stop

It will stop, but then it comes back. Its kinda annoying. Ive re-lubed the boot 2 times this past year, gunna do it again. Im thinking of changing to wheel grease...messy, but maybe will last longer.
