Hi guys just checking in with you all to see if anyone else is experiencing a "steering grunt" noise when turning to the right at low speeds.. My truck seems to make the noise at random..I have not had it back to the dealers yet for it but was looking for a heads up before I take it in..
Thanks again and this is a great new forum.

Yes, my 2011 does the same thing once in awhile. It is when I turn the wheel to the right it makes I guess what you mentioned a grunt.

There is a Tech Tip regarding a Steering Honk during low speed manuvers.

Power Steering Honk

Customers may complain of a honk noise during low speed parking lot maneuvers. If you have this complaint, please perform the following:

1) verify the steering column intermediate shaft boot is in position and not making noise from rubbing on the shaft. If so, adjust it appropriately and verify the noise is no longer present.

2) If the noise is still present, perform a steering system bleed procedure outlined in the service manual and verify the noise is no longer present.

3) If the noise is still present, replace the steering gear and bleed the system and verify the noise is no longer present
