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.

When I bought this Silverado in Jan. of this year, I just loved it. But I noticed that it has a clunking noise coming from the back of the truck every time you take off from a dead stop. When I come to a stop and take off again, it sounds like maybe the calibers are popping out. Like they are getting stuck when you stop and releasing hard when you take off. I don't how to find out if this is true but it is starting to concern me. I would like to know if anyone else with this truck has the same problem and would be willing enough to tell me how to fix it.

My new to me, used 2002 Silverado I just bought had a driveshaft clunk on 1-2, 2-3 upshifts.

I replaced the u-joints with no cure. I consulted with someone in the "know" and he said its common with the chevs and gmc`s.

You need to replace the front slip yoke with a nickel plated unit. But beware... that one will clunk too after a few thousand miles. The yoke has a loose fit on the splines, and the clunk is coming from that.

He said you can pack grease in the splines, That only lasts a month or so......

I guess were screwed............

low speed clunking, kind of like driving in 4wd on dry pavement, right turns seem to be worse. acts like something is loose and drops into and out of correct position at whim. gm says normal operation associated with computer. unable to verify complaint, come ride with me , they didn't have the time, have lived with this problem for eight years, hasn't gotten any worse just know that it's not right
