Customer Question
I own Chevy Avalanche...

I own Chevy Avalanche 2003 1500. When I drive it and hit bumps at low or high speed, the whole vehicle vibrates and shakes. So my mechanic replaced Upper joint bolt, Idler Arms and front shocks. But still the same problems happen. So what else of parts should be replaced more.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?

Please give me an advice of yours. email add :***@******.*** or(###) ###-####

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Avalanche yourself? What have you tried so far?

178000Miles. Vin No. 3GNEK13TX3G210088 5.0L

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I like this car and keep it for some more years. I really need to find the problem and fix it up. Please let me know what I have to do.

This usually means the steering damper has failed, it is about a hour to replace and $100 part. Here are replacement instructions if you want to do it yourself, let me know if you have questions. Thanks.
