Is this normal? When ever I put the EXT in park it rocks back and fourth and sometimes I fear I wont be paying attention park close to a car on the street and hit it! These brakes seem very weak also. :banghead:

It's normal if you don't come to a complete stop. You could possibly strip your park clog if you continue.

continue what? completely stopping and putting it in park? because thats what I have been doing....

what you failed to understand was that when i stop COMPLETELY with my foot on the brake (car is stationary) and then put the trunk in PARK, when I release the brake the car rocks back and fourth!

My guess is your tranny might be in need of some help soon.

It is normal to have some play when you put the vehicle in park. Especially if you apply the brake real heavy and release. It should NOT however, roll forward or backward.

It's normal. Park is simply neutral in the transmission, with the addition of engaging a park pawl to the output shaft to prevent the vehicle from rolling. The vehicle will rock slightly when on a hill until pressure is put on this pawl. To prevent bouncing back and forth, release the brakes slowly to allow the vehicle to come to rest on the pawl without bouncing off of it.

If your afraid of hitting something, put on your parking brake... your truck has one....

let me tell you a story about a Z71 i had..... 1500 miles and it was in for a new engine..something to do with the bearing in the bottom end were not installed right. so just because it's new does not mean jack.

my ext and my wife's burb do the same thing. i am parking on a slope, i've just gotten used to giving room in front and behind me. Parking brake doesn't help this issue.
