Ok, So a small noise in the rear end has led to this. Both axel's along with bearing's replaced. Then pinion started sounding increasingly angry! So new inner/outer bearing's and race's. Also have new crush sleeve and nut. My question do I have to crush a new sleeve or is the old one usable? Can you use a regular "click" style torque wrench to get pinion load? With new bearing's and race's that should be 15-30 in/lbs correct? If using new crush sleeve is there an initial torque setting to start with before setting for the load? Any help would be greatly appreciate!
I have a 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT and have noticed knocking noises when i turn my wheel both ways, i was able to get under the truck today and look at whats going on while a coworker turned my wheel, the rack and pinion slightly moves side to side when the wheel is turned, it looks like the bushing is missing and i need a replacement. I am not sure whether you can replace the bushing itself or need to replaced the entire rack and pinion assembly. I was able to find a replacement bushing on car id but can't find one anywhere else. https://www.carid.com/2017-chevy-silverado-steering-parts/acdelco-gm-original-equipment-rack-and-pinion-mount-bushing-1623027731.html anyone have experience with this? don't feel like dropping a couple grand if i don't have too. Also, i have brand new control arms, sway bar and tie rods are good. Help me please!
