Just had to say thanks.
My 2006 Impala LT just started experiencing the classic symptoms related to the Intermediate Steering Shaft lubrication issues I have been reading about.
After reading related posts, I sprayed heavy duty penetrating grease into the shaft, following suggestions from your members.
I pulled the car out of the garage and the noises were gone!
We'll see how long the fix lasts, but at this point I have saved the cost of a new shaft (GM cost $115.00) or saved the couple of hours it would have taken to remove the shaft, lube it and reinstall it.
I have just registered as a new member of the NAIOA and plan on visiting your site often.
My first Impala was a beautiful black 1978, which was my first new car.
I bought the 2006 new and we love it.
Thanks again,

I had that damn annoying clunk with my 06. I waited 2 months to take it in somewhere while it only got worse. I took it to local shop and mentioned it could be something in the steering. The guys couldnt figure it out. So I did some research and read all those posts on the web about the ISS being a common issue. So I called my dealer and asked them for a quote on lubing the shaft, they said they'd call me back. Got the call back they said just bring it in and they'll take care of it for me. So I took it in the next morning and was out of the dealer in an hour with a replaced shaft all for free, and my baby has never driven smoother.

So take it in cuz it's only gonna get worse Flame On!

Hey, its better than the dealer giving you the shaft back, unlubed and unwanted, am I right, and charging you after for it? Its absolute rape I tell ya :p

Glad to hear you were helped here. These guys are absolute gods.
