SERVICE INFORMATION
Correction

GMSPO has recently released a steering gear stub shaft bearing kit, P/N 26032824, for service on the above-mentioned vehicles.
Previously, to correct a pinion seal leak or squeak, the steering gear assembly had to be replaced because the pinion stub shaft bearing, seal and seal retainer were not serviceable. Technicians may now order the kit instead of replacing the steering gear assembly.

Do This
Replace the stub shaft bearing kit.

Don't Do This
Do NOT replace the steering gear assembly.
