#3026 of 3279 2002 GMC Yukon XL Knocking Sound while hitting the brakes
Nov 13, 2005 (11:18 am)
I have a 2002 Yukon XL with approx 35K miles. Over the past month or so, I have started to hear a knocking sound coming from the front of the vehicle when I hit the brakes right before the vehicle comes to a complete stop. I seem to notice it more if I am using the brakes on a slight decline, however, it still happens when stopping on a flat surface. When pulling into a parking spot, the sound happens directly prior to stopping. I don't hear anything while driving and using the brakes to slow down and it does not always happen. Any thoughts on this problem? Thank you

Can any one recomend a wheel and tire size? I want to get a wider tire and alloy wheel for my 2001 denali xl. I want the tire to fill the wheel well, yet not affect the computer, or handling.

That's not possible. If you look at your stock tires and rim, there is a huge gap between the fender well and the tire. So if you choose a tire/rim combo to fill the well, it will affect your computer by having the mph displayed as slower than you are actually traveling. If you retain the same tire circumference and go with a wider tire/rim combo you will have the same huge gap between the well and the tire.
I went with a 20' combo that retained the stock tire circumference and lowered the truck to minimize the gap between the well and the tire. Before lowering the truck, the gap between the tire and the well looked ungodly with wide tires.

I did on my 2001 Denali XL. The dealer replaced the heater under the extended warranty. Wthout the warranty, it would have been close to $400 to fix.

i have a o5 yukon 5.3 with 4000 miles and am having power surges when braking. when i come to a stop, my rpms jump up. it feels as if someone else is pressing the gas pedal as i am trying to stop. is anyone else having this issue? what should i do?
Have you taken it in to the dealer to have them look at it? Were they able to find a "code" for the problem? I have an 04 with the same problem - have nearly been in a couple of accidents. My dealer can't find a "code" so it's all in my imagination.
My wife won't ride in it anymore...
Is anyone else having this problem?

Been planning to purchase this for the family (4 kids/2 dogs) vehicle replacing the minivan. What an awesome machine. I decided to lease (real lease) for 3 years so I could jump on one of the new ones by the end. Anyone care to share what they paid if they leased? I added the Sun/Entertainment and bucket 2nd row; stock wheels. Payment is $589 for 10k miles. This is excluding the $675 ref dep and taxes. I also added a rearview camera and remote starter.
Oh yeah, the next morning a tire was flat...nail...dealer replaced the tire.

Can anyone tell me of a bluetooth I can put into my 03 Denali? I have a hands free now but would really like one built into the unit. I know the onstar has phone calling capability but just want to use my own phone.
