    Default 2005 Yukon XL "Growling" noise when turning left.

    Hi All,
    I just picked up a 2005 Yukon XL after my 03 xl was totaled. I am getting a growling noise in the steering column when turning left at low speeds. It is not there when I am doing over 5 mph. But, when I back out of a parking spot or turn into one then it growls. I have to turn the wheel pretty far for it to happen. (halfway between centered and lock to the left) I do not notice that it is harder to turn when it happens. The intermediate shaft was just replaced the day before I bought it. Also, with just the truck running and not moving forward, you can still hear the noise when turning the wheel left (never when turning it right). The noise seems to come from upper steering column, like right behind the steering wheel. Any ideas what may cause this noise? Easy fix? Thank you in advance.
