    Default gm rack and pinion steering

    i just picked up an '06 sierra 1/2 ton . i noticed the rubber bushings are a little loose and get a little clunking noise sometimes when turn. was wondering if the whole unit has to come off to change the bushings or is there an easier way. thanks for any advice.

    Chances are that it is the intermediate shaft not a bushing. Here is a link to a thread about lubing the shaft. If you are good with your hands I suggest that you do the grease fitting fix. It is on page 2 post #20.
