Vehicle is a 2000 2wd Chevrolet Tahoe. Vehicle was being backed out of a parking space when a loud bang was heard. After this bang, the steering was very loose and it was hard to control the vehicle. Immediate problem was determined to be 2 of the 3 bolts holding steering box in place had sheared. Chevy dealer has not offered a good explanation for this failure. He keeps stating that the vehicle hit something to cause the bolts to shear. Vehicle is in excellent condition and well maintained.

Steering loses power when turned mostly to the left. Also loses power in left curves and has to be manually steered in the curve to keep from crossing the center lines on the highway. This has become a frequent occurrence as of late.
