Sorry to bump up an old post. Blame Google.

heh... Google... I got exactly the same knock!

Got some grease into that boot today. I don't think is full, but for sure is more than before

I'll report back in a few days if it changed anything.

The noise is gone. Grease in the boot worked. I didn't post earlier, because I wanted to drive around a few days to make sure. No more noise.

Is there a way to remove the metal clamp and re-use it?? Or is it junk once removed? I noticed it has the factory paint mark on it for people like us who like to fix our own problems. lol Thanks in advance!

Actually if you use a grease gun with a needle tip, it will slide in under the metal clamp, and allow you to pump in the grease. Then you can just work it around to the lower part with your hand. Give it a bit of a massage! That is how I greased mine, prior to installing my chatter eliminator. With both options covered, I have 0 noise/chatter. I used 5th wheel grease I purchased at a Peterbuilt dealer. That stuff is THICK!

I just needled it through the boot. It made such a difference, next time I'll just pop the top clamp off and replace it with a hose clamp or something. Wish I had done this a while ago! For $9.10 in supplies the benefits are astounding!

I have had zero instances of steering knock since doing this! Again, total cost $9.10 providing you have a grease gun. Highly recommend.

Did this over a year ago and haven't had any symptoms since.

Hey I have a 2010 Wrangler. It is a very light tapping I occasionally feel on my gas or break pedal. Is this still the same annoyance you all are talking about?
Thanks!

I'm glad someone bumped this to the top. I've noticed mine doing the same thing ever since I bought it 6 weeks ago. I had an idea of what it was but no idea how to remedy the issue. Thanks!
