\'99 Suburban steering

My truck is completely stock with 44k on it. Lately I seem to be getting a slight bumping sensation through the steering wheel when turning. Any ideas? Could it be the steering box? Everything else seems to be fine.

Re: \'99 Suburban steering

is it 'oversteering' and kinda likes to jerk in the direction you are turning? My guess is the EVO sensor. That is the sensor that tells you Variable Power Steering system HOW MUCH to power assists is needed based on vehicle speed, and how fast you are turning the steering wheel. Very common problem in late model trucks.

Any way to test the sensor, or should I just swap in a new one if it's not too pricey. That actually makes sense, because the steering doesn't actually pull, it just feels different for a brief second, then goes back to normal. Thanks for the reply, I never would have known otherwise.

Re: \'99 Suburban steering

I'm sure you could test the sensor by determining what voltage it needs and get in ther with a meter to check things out. Its somewhere in your steering column. I had the dealer fix it when I obught the truck so I'm much more help than that. Do a search on this board for "EVO sensor" or something like that, someone may have already posted it.
