    04 EXT Wobble in the steering wheel

    Hello, I just bought a 2004 EXT I love this truck! However, I am concerned about this wobble feel in the steering wheel. It happens when I go over a bump or turn the wheel. I checked for play in the hub and there was no play at all. Could this be a worn out steering column? Please advise???

    No, just 20's. It's driving me nuts! Feels like loose tie rods but I checked for play didn't feel any

    I have the wobble too, Cadillac dealer says it's mostly the intermediate steering shaft, a weak point for large GM SUVs. I also have some play in my ball joints and inner tie rod end on the left side. It's in the shop now, hopefully getting corrected by the Chevy dealer who sold it to me.
