While driving at any speed the vehicle drifted to the left and right. The owner made contact with the dealer multiple times, however the problem still existed. The vehicle pulled to the right and left while in motion. The right wiper did not clean the windshield. There was a rattle noise which had come from the dash area on the left side while the vehicle was in motion. The dealer found four missing bolts under the steering. Due to the vehicle going to the left, the front calipers were removed, to check movement, the rear drums for dragging, binding, adjust and reassemble.

Consumer states that the tires on a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado bounced while driving. Consumer took the vehicle to the mechanic to have them balanced, and was told the tires maybe recalled tires. The tires did not have bubbles or splits on them, they just vibrated and bounced while driving. Wilderness AT, size P265/75R16. All four tires were balanced time and time again, but the problem still existed.

I have taken this truck to 2 different Chevrolet dealerships and contacted Chevrolet about this knocking sound when the vehicle is started and they tell me this has been happening since 1999, not just on trucks. One dealership told me it was because I didn't use a gmcoil filter.
