I noticed two weeks now I have a click clunk when I turn my steering. I never had a truck that did this. What can it be? Is my steering going come apart while I'm driving??

There is a loud "clunk" sound when turning the steering wheel all the way to the left or to the right. I will be taking it to the dealership next week. I seen that a few other people have had this same issue so I was wondering what the problem ended up being and around how much it cost to fix it.

Me tooooooooo.
This problem has been happening since I purchased it new in 2002 @ Banner Chevrolet in New Orleans and is still on going. It had to be brought in to more than one dealership. The Dealer Ship in Lawton, OK repaired the problem but the dealer ship in Slidell tells me it is normal when I know it is not. I am sick & tired of this problem.

Steering rattles. Dealer replaced SOP shaft under warranty. No problems since.

We've had this serviced twice. The first time they said they replaced it per GM guidelines. The second time they just lubed it, as the GM procedure had changed. Need to have it lubed again.
