The Chevrolet Silverado was introduced in 1999; it is a full-size pickup available in four-wheel drive. Edmunds.com reports that the Silverado is flexible in terms of its trim options and body styles. Additionally, Edmunds.com argues that the Silverado is a solid consumer choice whether it is for utility or towing purposes, sport endeavors or family use.
Chevrolet Technical Service Bulletins report steering vibration issues with multiple Silverado models. TSBs indicate that the Silverado suffers from a "clunking" underneath the hood, which is felt through the steering wheel/column while driving. Additionally, TSBs state that steering wheel "shuddering" may be experienced while executing parking lot-type driving. The appropriate repair measure is to replace the Silverado's steering shaft.
TSBs indicate that interior vibrations may be felt due to faulty front or rear suspension system. TSBs report that suspension vibration may be felt while driving between 40 and 60 mph. The likely culprit is failing springs and/or poor wheel alignment.
An automatic transmission or a manual transmission experiencing problems may also cause Silverado drivers to experience vibrations. Clutch problems with a manual transmission may result in vibrations felt while depressing the clutch pedal. Automatic transmission issues might cause a driver to experience vibrations or shuddering while shifting gears.
