I have a 2003 Impala 3.4 L. I have the usual slip/stick noise of the intermediate shaft when driving. I noticed this noise the other day. is it suspension or the intermediate shaft?

Strut mount? Does it make any noise when you turn the steering wheel from side to side? I cant think of anything else making that noise.

have someone do the bouncing of the car while u hold a large screwdriver or wooden ruler to your ear and the other end on the strut mount/bushing. Is the clicking heard thru the screwdriver/ruler ? Ohh and put the handle end of the screwdriver to your ear . . . Cool
