clunking noice from steering shaft
My steering made a clunk noise and my steering went out - as a result I went over a 250 ft embankment, luckily I walked away with minor injuries compared to what it could have been. God was with me this morning!

Clunking problem in the steering wheel
I notice it getting louder when turning. I have replaced every front end chasis part and even put brand new bilstien compressor and shocks front and rear and I still get this clunking sound. Very irritating. Just wondering if this is just part of the GM laundry list of vehicles.

This is the second time this problem has occurred. The first time it required a joint to be replaced.
