    Leaking Rack and Pinion

    thanks nickb2, have a safe 4th as well. I see wednesday 1st was canada day hope you had the day off!! My limited experience with rack and pinions has been just to change the unit but with remans out there I've had issues. Cardone make a new unit for 300.00us so that might be an option. I might...

    Leaking Rack and Pinion

    While I was servicing the trans on my 2003, I noticed that I've developed a leak around the rack and pinion shaft area seeping down to the driver side boot. Is there a quality rebuilt unit or new that you guys would recommend? Several years back I helped a friend on a 2007 silverado and went...

    New design for intermediate steering shaft?

    WOW nickb2, I can hardly get my laptop open to replace a hard drive and then we'll see if I can get windows back in it. You are computer savvy, I was born 50 years too early for all of this going on now. Quite a system you have going there my hat goes off to you!!

    New design for intermediate steering shaft?

    Its 99 f here again today and had to do a couple outside things followed the shade as much as I could. That 8spd must be a usa thing as numerous cases including mine cannot apparently be fixed?? Bucks like being in a rodeo. dam shame for a new rig. glad it warmed up for you, these plastic cars...

    New design for intermediate steering shaft?

    As far as i know, the revised a c delco shaft has not been changed. I installed one on my 2003 about 50k ago and still is fine no clunk. go to rockauto and see what is available. make sure you position the steering wheel to where it doesn't turn or you will ruin the clock spring under the...

    New GMC/GM 8 Speed Transmission

    they did the fluid flush one time and eventually replaced tranny. no mention of torque converter or flush coolant lines?? the so called new unit shifts worse than the original. Not bad enough for the computer to set a code though but I'm sure gm has it programmed that way. I wouldnt touch a 8spd...

    New GMC/GM 8 Speed Transmission

    Lots of crap being built over the years and shoved down the consumers throats with little recourse. I hope that is going to change but it will take years to see it?? I never had such a technoloigly advanced tranny shift so bad. POS!! Not only is the tranny an issue, but the entire drivetrain is...

    New GMC/GM 8 Speed Transmission

    thanks stu and I have. lemon law is going to take over. they cannot fix this 8spd?? going to try the 10spd as they have been out for over 3yrs and ford uses the same tranny. we'll see. has anyone had issues with the 8spd and had them actually fixed?? I see that the general is being sued over it?

    2019 Ford F-350 4x4 Death Wobble

    thanks nickd, they replaced the stabilizer with the upgraded ford unit but same wobble. I had read that ford came out with caster/camber bushings and changed the alignment and that has helped some?? but if you have 20k miles and have had numerous wobble incidents, I wouldn't trust a part on the...

    2019 Ford F-350 4x4 Death Wobble

    A ford 4x4 only gal/family and never had this issue before. ford shouldn't sell a product with this kind of history. lemon law is in the works I quess. just like me and my gm 8 spd tranny I never knew they had such a poor history so I'm in the same boat going through arbitration now. but nobody...

    2019 Ford F-350 4x4 Death Wobble

    thanks nickd. she is going to end up with the lemon law proceedings. I thought death wobble was a thing of the past on new factory fords, gm, etc!! I always knew modified lifted vehicles were a receipe for disaster but hers is bone factory. said she should have stayed with RAM.

    2019 Ford F-350 4x4 Death Wobble

    she has called ford and just gets the runaround. on a 75k rig, this wobble shouldn't be included. bone stock factory and wobbles?? something is wrong here for sure. hey nick, has it warmed up above 0 yet up there yet?

    2019 Ford F-350 4x4 Death Wobble

    My neighbor bought a new F350 4x4 and has had the death wobble on the front end since new. At first it was minor and not given much thought till around 10k after driving over a rough bridge at 80mph the truck went wild. It had been in the shop 4 times so far and all that was done is the steering...

    New GMC/GM 8 Speed Transmission

    I posted an earlier thread on the GM 8 speed auto and if others have issues with shifting, shudder,etc. After the fifth service visit, mine was replaced and is worse than the original. I was supposed to get a new transmission and torque converter but not according to the service ticket. Thanks...
