Good news but odd noise.

So I was having some puking and heat problems. Sure as all heck, head gaskets were going. So I took it in to the dealer for head gaskets while it was apart, head studs and EGR delete. So, all is well. However it makes a SLIGHT power steering noise when I go over a bump slow (pulling in or out of the driveway). It wonít do it just turning the wheel. Could this just be PS fluid on bushings from the install (some fluid leaked when the truck was a part). The power steering fluid isnít low.

Thoughts?

Good point. I installed a new powercable today and spent about 20 minutes looking for this noise, I think my dumb a$$ got sick.

Off topic but we are going to Cadilac Ranch tonight. If you are around Robinson....
