steering issue need help

my steering is acting up. the car only has 3,400 miles on it. when i take turns fast/hard it locks up and makes a weird cracking noise. im guessing this is because i have electronic steering and 2010-2012 had regular power steering? have any of you guys experienced this with any of your camaros with any year? i contacted my dealer and make an app so they better fix this lol

yes car is tuned but how could a tune and basic bolt on exhaust parts effect the steering? and no it did it before the tune and mods but its gotten worse.

Wait a second. You had this problem before? What did you think, that it would go away all by itself? Should have taken it to the dealer the FIRST time it happened. That's a big safety hazard. An accident waiting to happen.

when i say it happened before the mods and tune i mean it wasnt really noticeable it didnt scream wow this is an issue it didnt seem serious so i didnt want to waste my time going to the dealer with a problem that i could replicate on command. now its happening all the time and now the dealer will have to fix it. thanks for the safety concern.

Don't forget it's not up to the dealer, the warranty is on GM ... Good Luck, in the future always let the dealer know there is an issue no matter how small it is. That way there is a paper trail history.

agreed i should have called it in sooner but like i said i couldnt replicate it on command but now i can so now they will have to fix it. the car has 3,400 miles on it and ive only had it 4.5 months.

So this affects all 2013-2014 Camaro's? That's a big deal, is this causing a drop in sales or anything? I've seen a bunch of used ZL1's around here lately, I'm starting to wonder if this might be part of the reason why.

i mean from what ive seen with the ZL1's its a power steering failure and its few and far between. mine is not failing, its binding/locking up when i take right turns at quick speeds or when im on highway entrance and exit ramps at higher speeds. at low speeds and regular driving speeds its fine. from what ive seen with the ZL1's owners its a complete failure meaning they dont have any power steering assist at all, thank god im not having that problem because thats f**cking dangerous lol

Yeah, I've been looking at a few of these cars but since I read that it's kind of in the back of my mind. Especially where (and I know they're not exciting at all) I've had a Honda for the last 10 years and haven't had to do anything outside of tires and brake pads. I just want to be sure what I'm buying is going to hold up.

i figured out the problem it was a small metal clip that ever so slightly touched the header only on hard right turns. problem solved. my dealer is an idiot. 8 days wasted for nothing. the problem was happening before the headers as well because this metal clip was bent outward to far but thats why it got worse with the headers.
