clicking while turning

lately ive noticed that everytime i turn, usually only while moving slowly, its making a pretty good clicking noise, sounds like the tierods maybe? i think im going to take it to the dealer hopefully they will fix it since ive got different wheels and suspension.

Can you feel it in the steering or floorboards as well? There is a Bulletin for an improperly lubricated intermediate steering shaft. Many GM cars and trucks have this problem. Your dealer may have to order the part. I have 2 on order for customers now.

clicking during a turn can be a symptom of a bad cv joint as well. Take it in, maybe you have a split boot and damaged the joint.

I agree, probably a CV joint.
