What causes the truck to feel like its locking up when I make a turn ?

Asked by Mar 10, 2013 at 09:37 PM about the 2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SL Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When we drive on the interstate then get off and make a turn the truck starts acting like it has a flat
tire almost like something is locking up but when you go straight it's fine. We had the rear end oil
changed in cause it was that! And it doesn't do it on regular back roads just interstate and ideas on
what this is?

We had that put in also does it take time for it to work. We just had this done this past Friday so it's only been 2 days.

Worped rotor, at interstate speed the small warp rubs little bit, a bunch of times slowly building heat that makes the rotor even more distorted. When it cools it trues itself most of the way. And a worped rotor is more noticeable Turning. But more likely is a fluttering tire caused by a improper alignment because of wore out tie rod ends or such. Try to get it to do what you said and you and a passenger stick your heads out the windows to see if is fluttering like described.
