Took my 2003 chevy silverado 1500 5.3L v8 to have brakes done dealer suggested other things now drives poorly. Help? First time I took the truck in the dealer replaced front brake pads and turned rotors, replaced rotors and rear pads. They also changed right and left front axle seals, 4x4 diff service, replaced power steering pump shaft seal and suggested a transmission service( that I declined and had serviced (fluid changed) elsewhere ). The left front wheel hummed(you could hear every revolution) and the gas pedal and cab floor vibrated. The truck also lacked its get up and go. It seemed to hesitate when driving. I took the truck back to the dealer. They said everything looks fine there is some feathering of your tires and they may need balancing. Okay. And we suggest a tune up, fuel injector cleaning and a tire rotation (tires last taken care of 7,000 miles ago rotate and alignment). I drove it home seems better until I drive it 30 miles at 50+ speeds. There is still a vibration coming from the front drivers side tire there is also a ticking noise that comes and goes from the right of the gas pedal. Could any of the work performed be to blame? I have to take it back again and I am trying to educate myself as much as possible. I spent 2400. And I expected my truck to run great. Thank you so much with any help. Holly Q.
