Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Silverado LT 5.3L V8

Had rear differential "rebuilt" for $2,100 only to have problem of loud clunking noise from rear end when shifting gears return a few months later. Differential cover had slow fluid leak later. Had the gasket replaced from a different place and it started leaking again a few months later. U joints have also been replaced.

(reported on)

Silverado 2500HD LS 6.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

A clunking noise when I accelerate at low speed or decelerate. It does it more so when the truck is cold. All shocks have been checked & all body bolts tightened, when under the truck it sounds like it could be coming from transmission mount. Could this be the problem.
