I referenced (#19-007-02) and they stated that it was only for the '03s.. The tech was able to duplicate the problem (the service manager stated that the tech disconnected the upper/lower steering linkage and turned the steering wheel and it still thunked/clicked). Got my car back (they had to repaint my hood as they backed into it) and the clicking is still there

Gotta take it in again and i'm hoping they will fix it properly this time.

Just got the car back again from the dealership, (they replaced the column the first time) and they basically just tighted up the air bag assembly thing on the column as it was loose and causing the clunk). Clunk now gone.

Well I started this thread so i geuss i'll chime.

I did the redneck fix.
mine clunked only when the wheel was turned in a certian direction.

I got pissed one day when it did it and I yanked really freaking hard on the steering wheel. Yeah I know pretty childish.

but geuss what? that was at 10k and it hasnt done it since and I 15k on it now.
My wheel was making the noise somewhere either in the sector shaft or at the column where it meets the wheel.

Either way, no more noise or rubbing sound, and feel.

1997 f250 4x4 powerstroke diesel. Propane injected, 5" mandrel exhaust 4" downpipe, Injectors blah blah, and lots of other junk good for 390hp 790 ft lbs. 2003 Silver 03 srt-4 stock as a rock 1974 AMC Gremlin 401ci 2900 lbs and 375hp and 425ftlbs. Yeah it ought to scoot.

Are you sure this problem is only with 03's? I seem to hear this clunk noise after turning the wheel at certain times, or after shifting into 2nd and 3rd gear. I pulled in the wheel and jerked a little left and right and was able to reproduce the sound.
