On these newer trucks, if you are feeling a very small bit
of play at the steering wheel, it often is as simple as a
bearing and spring kit that needs to be replaced. We don't
see many/if any problems with the actual tilt section of the
newer columns. But there was an issue with the bearings
inside the column.
Thanks for the input; I called a local GMC dealer and he said there are two
bearings on either end of the shaft in the steering column, he told me it
would probably be about 270 to break the column down and replace it. Does
this sound about right to you?
thanks for the help
The steering column in my 99' K1500 exhibits a little up and down movement
in it also. It's not noticeable most of the time or I've gotten used to it.
I've been told the same thing that Ian just posted. That there is a bearing
inside the column that may need to be serviced.
