Ah, great to see our neighbors up north. I own a '98 Sonoma SLS myself.
Is everything aligned properly?
Is the tire itself secure?

Yes the tire is ok, I disassemble the wheel today to check f the brake was OK, and I saw the wheel had a loose , only if i push or pull the wheel.

That's very strange :(

Hmm...perhaps one of our technicians here can give you a little more insight...Shadams or GMCSonoma should know what's up.
That's strange though. Have you taken it to the dealer to have them check it out?
Sorry I can't help much, the only real problem I've had with my Sonoma was an alignment thing, and my dad was able to straighten that out easily.

It's most likely normal. It's just the axle moving in and out of the diff as the c-clip allows. It's hitting against the spider gear and pinion shaft and there is a bit of movement allowed between them.

finally i'm very not sure that what i ear is normal, first the noise come only from the left wheel, and if i jump on the bed on the left side I can ear the noise but nothing when I jump on the ride side of the bed

:confused:

thank you

The noise is not really loud inside the cab, it's more a feeling , When I'm almost stopped or when I begin to start , it's like the rear wheel move foward or backward.

Could it be the bushing of the shock blade?
