I believe I have read about this before but can't find the thread. I was talking to a fellow Tahoe owner last weekend, we were traveling for the holiday, and we were mutually agreeing how much we love our trucks. I mentioned that my 06 w/32K miles was needing to have the u-joints replaced. I get a lot of clunking during down-shifting and going from reverse to drive. The dealer acknowledged 6 months ago there was slop in the joints but downloaded a new software fix to the tranny and said it should be better. Well it was for a while but now its getting bad again.

Anyway, this brother Tahoe owner said that he was having a click or something in his steering and his mechanic said GM had put the wrong grease in at the factory. I wish I would have written down what he called the part, all I remember was an upper something or other. His 04 Tahoe was out of warranty so his shop charged him $134 for the service. Anyone have any idea what this is about.

Also any suggestions for service bulletins, recalls etc that I should have done when I take it in for the u-joints as it will be out of warranty soon.

Thanks,

MC

Thanks - looks like what he was talking about. I have noticed a thumping feeling in my steering since my Tahoe was new. I will make sure the dealer makes the fix before warranty runs out.
