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 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission

ya so i put in a rebuilt power steering box (alot cheaper than a brand new one) and it completely eliminated that annoying noise and the rubbing feeling in the wheel when

you turn. it was quite easy to replace with the proper tools and a lift.

I have an 04 chevy silverado 1500 and it makes a really annoying rubbing noise when i turn either way. it has definitely gotten worse since i originally noticed it. My uncle has the same truck and it does the same thing. I am going to try putting in a new power steering pump and see if it fixes it.

my 2004 Silverado has a noise in the steering column that sounds like a growl like when you turn too far in one direction and the pump is growling but it happens through the whole range of motion. I have a friend with a 1999 and he had the same problem that cost him 1800 to fix and it is back
