Seems like it'd all breaking at once. My 03 half ton silverado has developed a ticking seems to be coming from right front only when turning left. Ticking goes with the speed of the truck. Can feel it in the steering wheel as well. Where should I start?

Have you checked the hub bearings?

When checking cv shaft what should I look for? Loose play in it? Bearings are only a year old but I will double check those as well.

Also do a google check on chevy truck intermedient steering shaft (I think that's right), there is a problem with them making a clunking noise when turning at slow speeds, it goes away when you speed up. Mine did it and there is a fix for it, you have to pack the steering shaft with grease. If that is your problem there are sites that have instructions for a fix.

Ditto...had to replace mine at 70000 miles on my 03 silverado...

Was it a clunking or ticking?

It was more of a bump in the steering with a slight clunk...only happened at speeds under 35 mph..
The only silverados with cv joints are 4wd...you might have a loose brake pad or bad rotor bearings..
