Been living with this problem for 7 years. Dealer fixed it once (at 33,000 miles) but came right back with a few months. Now have 160,000 miles on Suburban and problem remains the same, no worse than when it started 2nd time.
clunking noise and a definite feeling of excessive movement in the steering wheel when turning at a slower speed. A continuous correction of my 2005 suburban tracking over the road tat is the wandering that takes place depending on the crowning of the road surface. This vehicle has new tires,new front end alignment,and correct tire pressure.
