I have an 06 as well...nothing but problems. I had six repair attempts in six months on the steering alone (not to mention all the other repairs) and GM won't recognize lemon law, so I filed suit. Get out of it, if you can!

I had the same problem with my 06 Uplander. They eventually replaced the intermediate steering shaft this fixed the clunking when turning the wheel. The clunking I also had at low speed over the smallest bumps. I asked one of the service tech not the service manager and he took a look and replaced both trailing link arms on the front end. this was at 21000 miles so far nothing else

allenford, i just finished repairing my 2006 uplander ls this morning. i had the same problem (i think) at low speeds or uneven ground or anything that would make the car rock side to side i kept hearing a clicking noise coming from the front end. By yesterday i have had enough of that crap i crawled underneath while my wife rocked the car from side to side finally i found the problem it was the linkage that connects the anti sway bar to the strut (look for a single bar that runs par ell to the strut) to take that linkage off your going to need a allen wrench and a 15mm opened wrench and a lot of pb blaster if you live in the northern states i paid $36.00 kinda hard to take off easy to put on now the car goes down the road just fine no problems

Both of those repairs were also done to my vehicle along with replacing the rack and pinion, the CV boots, and relubing the steering shaft twice. The problem would stop for about 3,000 to 4,000 miles and then return. This van has been a nightmare!

I wish I had seen this. I have a 2006 uplander and have the same problem.They changed Intermediate Shaft steering column , rack & pinion , and power steering pump. It cost a lot. I hope this will solve it for good.
