don't be an ass!
I had a steering pop on my 00 silverado and I heard that It needed to be lubed. Since I hate dealing with the dealers my dad and I started looking at the steering and we lubed an expansion joint inside of a rubber grommet under the dash. When we lubed this it solved the steering pop I don't know how long this will fix the problem since I traded off the truck the same day we fixed it. I am not saying this is a perminent solution or that it will solve everyones problem but it worked for me so I thought i'd pass it along hope it helps some of yuo.
