I have got this weird issue which is super annoying now and wondering if anybody has had this on their truck.

So on every full right turn theres a creak from the steering so basically clockwise. No creak while turning clockwise. Thought it was the clock spring and the dealer confirmed and replaced it. Now its back barely a 100 miles later. It doesnt make any sense - something else might be getting in the way.

Anybody else had the same or have any suggestions?

This will sound weird. But I had a creak coming from the front of the truck when I would turn to the left. Had my wife turn the wheels back and forth in the drive way to figure it out. The skid plate had one loose bolt and it would move just enough to creak when turning left. Tightened up the bolt and no more noise.

The exhaust note honestly sounds better :) haha

I wouldnt mind it on an older truck But you wouldnt expect any sounds from a brand new truck at barely 1000 miles.

The clock spring is busted again. This time the dealer is replacing the steering wheel too. Lets hope this doesnt come back

Ah, the damn clock spring.

“The average clock spring replacement cost is between $100 and $800, depending on the car model and labor costs. A clock spring costs $50 to $500, and the labor costs $50 to $300. The big difference in the price is because some car models have the clock spring integrated with some control modules for the steering wheel.”
