Can someone please direct me to the proper TSB or part number for the lube
kit for the intermediate steering shaft for my 2004 CHevy Silverado 2500HD.
I had the shaft replaced under warranty, but the truck now is out of the
warranty period (and then some) and the problem is starting again. I want
the dealer to lube the shaft with the kit - which I understand is less than
$20.00 - before he tells me that the only other option is to replace the
shaft for much more money.
I figure that if I know the part number or the TSB, the service advisor
can't tell me that there's no other way to handle the problem other than the
more expensive replacement.
Thanks - Jonathan
did they replace the shaft or just lobe it?
my 04 sierra was doing same thing and my sevice writer told me that all
they do is lube it.
that unless it is damaged in a wreck that you cant even but the shaft.
I need the engine size and if it's a 2wd or 4wd.
post all the vehical info the first time to enact proper diagnosis and
I did a general TSB search using a 6.0 ltr 2wd 2500 series Siverado,
and, not knowing WHAT the "problem" is and having to guess......
what I came up with was one TSB that addressed pulling the shaft
completely out for greasing. No mention of any kit that allows for

and get the #'s you wanted.
2004 Chevy 2500HD short-bed crew cab, 6.6L Duramax LB7, Allison 5-spd auto,
2wd, 3.73:1 rear axle. Oh, and it's green.
Someone else mentioned a "lube kit" for around $14.00 from his dealer in a
post in this NG (but I can't find the reference anymore). I don't mind if
they have to pull the shaft to lube it - what I do mind is being told that
replacing the entire shaft at my expense is the only way to go. I want to
know what alternatives there are to replacement so I can go in to my dealer
informed and not ignorant.
