    Default 2001" Silverado......Weird Noise

    I got a 2001 chevy silverado 1500 5.3lt and I just recently got my truck lifted and its making this weird noise when I go over 20mph it sounds like a grind and a rattle and I took it back to the place I got my lift put on and they said they have no idea what it is. If you know anything please share with me I have no idea

    Can you tell what area the noise is coming from? Front? Back? Middle? A "noise" is a pretty broad description and can make diagnosis pretty hard. Can you get video of the noise and post it?

    From what you've mentioned, I going to take a guess, and say that the Grinding/Rattle Noise, maybe coming from the Front Wheel Hub Bearings???.....its a common Problem on the 1999" to 2006" NBS Trucks.

    yea, get us a vid of it. That may help narrow it down, it could be anything at this point. U-joint, front diff, front wheel bearing, front CV axle, transfer case. I find it odd that the place that did the lift can not figure out what it is.

    I know its after the fact, but When you went back to the Shop, that did the Work"the Lift"....did you take them on a drive, so that they could hear grinding/rattle Noise??
