#40 of 46 Rear axle noise
Jul 20, 2010 (1:37 pm)
Recently, I noticed that my '07 Sierra is making a squeaking noise when I'm driving. It doesn't sound like it's coming from underneath the hood. It sounds more like the rear axle. After, I loaded the bed with over 600 lbs of logs, the noise was more pronounced. Does anyone know what this could be?

Those trucks are notorious for rear leaf spring squeak

I have a 2006 GMC Seirra 1500 Short Bed with a 6.0 and 4:10 gears. My owners manual says this vehicle is not designed nor intended to pull a 5th or goose neck trailer. Why is this? Is this because of the frame won't handle it or are the afraid of damage to to the cab when making turns. Someone please help.

I'm glad that so far the repair that your dealership performed has held. Keep us updated if things start to go south, but hopefully that isn't the case!
All the best,

#46 of 46 Front end grinding noise 2003 silverado

I have a 2003 silverado 1500 4x4 with 5.3 and 86,000 miles. At highway speed I have a grinding noise comming from the front end. It seems to get quieter when I let off the gas. I can also feel the vibration through the floor and steering wheel. The noise/vibration gets much more prominent when I go over a bump. The noise does not change when turning left or right. The wheel bearings have less than 30 k on them. I`m not thinking the wheel bearing is the problem, I`m kinda thinking cv joints or input shaft bearings? I did jack it up quick last weekend and the left wheel has considerable back and forth play, but no up and down play..
