    I have a noise when making low speed left turns. Both axle assemblies were replaced last year but the power steering gear box failed, slowly and by December the cacophony of sound from the from end was indescribable. Replaced the steering gear and all the wear part in the front suspension, gave it nice alignment. Life was good for a time.

    The noise it is making is different from the last time the axle assemblies failed but I suspect that's what I'm struggling with. The sound is best described as the sound of something in a bind unloading. Started out only occasionally and is getting more frequent but no worse in severity. My rig hasn't made this noise before and I wanted to run it by experts before I toss retirement dollars at it.

    Is it possible the loose steering gear may have damaged an axle assembly? I don't suppose the left turn indicates anything about which axle assy does it?
