Hi!

Ordered mine from rockauto on 1 september, got an e-mail the day after saying it was shipped and I got it today on the 7th.  :thumbsup:

And btw, I live in Sweden.

I've got a 2005 Avalanche that sure made a lot of noise from around the steering column when driving on bumpy roads at low speed.
It's all gone now  :D

The only real problem I encountered was that while listening to toby keith on my MP3-player connected to the AV (thanks for the tip about aux input connected to cables running from XM)
was that when I disconnected the cable to the gas pedal a warning came on (reduced engine power) I then turned the ignition off and continued my install of the ISS.

When I was done and about to take it for a test run the Engine Light came on and would not disappear.  :beating:

I ran inside and went online and searched but couldn't find anything about it.
I went outside again after about 5 minutes to disconnect and connect the cable to the gas-pedal again but when I came out the light would not come on.  :thumbsup:

So I went for my testrun and now the ride is as smooooth as it should be, even on bumpy roads  :D

Thanks for all the great information on this forum!

Keep in mind, it eliminates that feeling of the "popping" in the front end you can feel to the steering wheel. Mine did it when turning at slow speeds on uneven ground.. If you don't have that problem, or something mentioned that has been cured as posted by other members, why change it? you might already have a nice tight feeling truck like everyone else wants again! haha Sorry to hear you had a bad one already though....I had a popping noise that started the next day after install to about 4 days after install and it went away and works great with no noise and great feeling. I'm guessing it had to work lube into everywhere....

Good luck. Cheers!  :thumbsup:

Thats kinda what I think...Im not sure my Existing Shaft is bad...even though its a factory one.

The Popping I got on my dorman was abnormal, and I removed it after talking to several members here.....maybe Im just jelouse of the "Brand New Truck" claims heheheh

Replaced mine 10/16, after much discussion with my wife and reading the forum. She didn't think I could do it. I'm pretty good with general DIY stuff, but only recently have started working on my cars again, tired of paying for simple part swaps. Its the diagnosis that I'm not good at. This site helped.
 
Anyway, I didn't set any records but it wasn't hard. 90minutes mostly due to uncertainty and taking some time to think through it rather than giving up. I have power pedals, and decided to remove the boot and pull the shaft into the engine compartment rather than trying to pull it inside(not much room). That was easier for me, the boots is 3 10mm nuts and there is much more room to work under the hood. The hardest part of the hold thing, was wiggling the old shaft loose, I used a long screwdriver and mallet from inside and pulled and wiggled under the hood. Same issue with the new one, I had my wife push from the engine side and I guided on the floor, then wiggled and pushed the engine side in. Its a tight fit but with some grease and maniupulation not hard.
Anyone can do this if they can use tools, dealer wanted $130labor so that's what I saved. I spent $200 on the borgeson shaft bcause, I read several bad posts about the dorman, but seems there are mixed results on both.  The AV drives so much better, I've only had it 2mths and was feeling a lot of regret until this fix. Worth it!! Thanks to all.

gotta add to this great thread.

I bought the replacement ISS from my local dealer last winter, but just got around to installing it this past week-end.

It truly is like driving a new truck.  No more rattling, clunking, or vibration in the steering wheel.  It made a HUGE difference.

I bought part # 19153614 and it took me about 25 minutes to replace it in my 2002 Avalanche Z71.  15mm socket and ratchet to loosen the lower bolt in the engine bay and the same to loosen the upper bolt under the steering wheel.  After loosening both bolts with the ratchet, I removed them by hand.  Once both bolts were removed, I pulled the top part of the ISS down away from the top mount, then went into the engine bay and pulled the lower part of the ISS up and out of the lower mount.  Then, went back under the steering wheel to pull the ISS shaft out, into the cabin.  The new one was put in place by pushing it through the rubber boot in firewall and attaching the top bolt finger tight.  Then attach the lower bolt finger tight, then use ratchet to tighten.  Finally back under the steering wheel to tighten the bolt with the ratchet.  Done.


simple to complete and well worht it!

Bought mine at Rock Auto and it was here the next day.  Took me about 30 min due to moving the power pedals.  I can't believe the difference.  I love it.

This really is a no-brainer job.  My dealer quoted me $200...did it myself in 30 minutes minus 15 for cervezas.  My vote goes for removing the 3 10mm nuts on the boot on the firewall and pulling the shaft out through the engine compartment.  I threadlocked the nuts just to be on the safe side (not sure if it was required) The knocking is gone and steering is tight. Just an observation, you mention removing the spacer...I left that in since the stock one had it still in.  I figured it was in there to keep the tube from collapsing when you put the balls to it. I know it said in your instructions to remove it, but I figured, what  could it hurt leaving it?  Thanks for the great write up, this site is the best!  :thumbsup:

Thanks all- I took great strength and courage from this thread! :thumbsup:

Bought the GM ISS and took 22 minutes to make the swap. Took the boot off. If I woulda had a helper it woulda tooken 10 minutes!! :thumbsup:

Anybody have a good reason why we shouldn't go the boot route/pull from engine side?? ???

Thanks again!

 :thumbsup:  Well, I finally got the new Dorman shaft and installed it yesterday. I was feeling a very slight clunk in my steering when going over roads with little cracks and bumps, so I figured it  was the ISS...and with the new shaft in, and no faint clunking, I now am sure thats what it was. The give-away was the faint clunking when at a stop and pressing the brake on and off.

I did have to "work" the dorman shaft for about 10-minutes to loosen it up, as it had a pretty bad sticky spot in it about 1-1/2" from fully compressed..and I lubed it with white lithium grease also.

I dont think my factory shaft was as bad as some people had, because the only difference I notice is the faint clunk being gone, and maybe just a slightly more precise steering, but not a major difference.

30 minutes total time, removed boot, did not loosen or remove power pedals at all. Shaft easily removes from engine side once 3 nuts are removed from boot and boot is pulled down. half the 30 minutes was me cleaning and re-lubing the inside of the boot to prevent the dreaded cold morning squeel.

i'm on my 3rd one, 1st ones had a "loose"feel(steering wheel had a lot of free play)after a few months. new one when extended all way had a blue coating like drive shaft splines do. the other two did NOT. i think dorman is still working out the bugs. :thumbsup:

Mine has the Blue Coating on it, but like I said it had a VERY stiff spot on it when extending/retracting. Its now loosey-Goosey feeling, and I think Im gunna take it out and put the Original one back in. Its non-stop low-level clunking/popping now, far more than the small amount the OEM shaft was doing. Its very noticable over "smooth" pavement, as the small bumps dont cause tire noise, but the shaft has to expand compress a half inch or so...and I can feel it when stopped and press/release the brake pedal.

I guess Im out $45,,,crap.  >:( 

I know a lot of people really like the Dorman, but this is my second one with problems, and well, I just dont have patience for quality issues. It doesnt seem rational to replace a slightly defective part with a more defective part...HAHA!

Anyone else out there with similar problems?

Installing the updated shaft would use the same processes for shaft removal and reinstallation, the lubrication steps are skipped.

Doug,
        I just bought my first avalanche . It is a 2005 with 60,000 miles and i have a slight noise when i turn the wheel right or left, it makes a few  popping sounds when the wheel so d you know what this is and what you did would that fix my problem and why did you do this lube kit install ( remember i am new to this and don't now anything about avalanches) also where did you get the painted door handles
thanks for you help
