The problem that happened after this subframe assembly was bent is the safety issue I am concerned with. When this assembly gets bent it smashes the power steering lines in the frame which in turn causes the power steering hoses to reach a high enough pressure to explode and you loose your power steering. What I am concerned with is someone traveling down a highway at say 70 mph and hitting a pot hole and this sub frame failing and at this time losing your power steering.

The aluminum subframe has two brackets that need to be welded according to Chevrolet. The aluminum subframe "flexes" causing a clicking sound when the steering wheel is turned to the left and the right. Chevrolet advised the dealer to weld the two brackets and that should quiet the noise. Chevrolet said that there are no safety bulletins on this issue.
