CLUCKING NOISE DRIVER SIDE STERING OR WHEEL
I have the same clunking noise but i have not confirmed where on the steering column the noise is coming from.. The dealer recommended changing the intermediate shaft but even they werent very sure this would stop the noise. Is this correct?
My truck vibrates at high speeds due to my 26 inch rims. They suggested i change my pitman and idles arms because they are worn and have play..
I'm trying to confirm so that i can buy the parts and change them myself.
