    apparantly its a 4X4 since you mentioned steering box (2WD use steering
    rack).....yep, GM had some ugly noise issues with box on them. noise is
    the only issue i was subjected to but i didnt see any at your mileage
    that hadnt already been replaced. hope the dealer trip worked for
    you!...............kjun

    ps..you mentioned fuel filter 'appeared' dirty. did they slice it open
    and examine the membrane?
