Buy the steering shaft seal and replace it, and pack it with grease. Cost me $25 from amazon and it’s been quiet for 3 months since I did it. I previously sprayed grease into the old boot which worked for about 6 months, either way cheap fix.
I used a flexible extension shaft on my impact driver, it was easy but I was able to feel it onto the nut and get it off. To reinstall, I started it by hand then snugged it down same way I got it off.
Reviving my old thread here, anyone else want to chime in? I never got the stations in the 300's in my truck... is there some kind of update I need to get those stations? I can get them on the app, but not in the truck.
Thanks! You have them on long? How they holding up? I was looking at the GM 3" off road steps that come on the midnight edition trucks until I saw these. I live in the northeast so Im always worried about rust and rock chips from crap on the roads.
After having this problem come and go for the past year, (truck currently has 15k miles), I replaced the shaft boot and it's totally gone. Grabbed it on amazon for $22, prime. I know I could have gotten it under warranty at the dealer but for $22 and 30 minutes in my garage i'm totally happy with the results rather than spending half a day at the dealership. I used part # 25815601 as previously mentioned in this thread by others.
Prob not since this thread is 2 years old.
Well... I'm the OP and i just posted that I bought one.... but I did contact two local shops and they were WAY more expensive. I got the Hammerhead for $1100 shipped, and I got it within a few days of ordering. Local fab shops were a few weeks out, and wanted to have my truck for 3-4 days. This was way easier and Hammerhead makes a fantastic product.
Ended up going with Hammehead’s bumper. The company had excellent customer service when I contacted them with a few questions, and I got a great deal through bumperstock.com. This is the Hammerhead model 600-56-0481. I’m going to get some better photos but here are a few I did take quick. So far I’m impressed. It’s very heavy duty, 1/4” steel, excellent powder coat finish.
