I have a 2009 4wd DC SB that is nearing 100k km's and works well, but I have a few brief questions that I would appreciate some direction with, I've come up with a few dead end searches:
(1) My steering feels like it wanders, i.e. my steering seems to have some play between the steering wheel and the wheels themselves. I have briefly inspected the outer tie rods (it's still Winter here so lots of snow and slush on everything) and I cannot see any obvious play there. Are there any common problems with the 2nd gen regarding a lack of steering "feel"?
(2) My engine is really ticky! Between the throwout brg squeaks (URD kit is on my to do list), the cab fan chirps and the ticky engine this thing makes a crazy amount of annoying noise... good thing I like the truck! Are there any common causes of engine noise? Wondering if the EGR circuit or something may be the culprit, looking for a place to start looking.
Thanks for the help.
