2006 Camry w/2.4 engine with about 50k on the odometer. When I apply the brakes and come to a stop I feel a bump/klunk through the steering wheel and again when I go to start moving again. It happens almost every time I stop and start. Do I look for a brake issue or possibly a motor/transmission mount. Hoping someone else on here has experience this to help me pinpoint the problem area.

No, only when stopping and starting. Seems like something shifts one way when stopping and the other way when starting. Something was mentioned about brake pads shifting. Is this a possibility? My wife says she can actually hear it. My hearing is not good, so I can only feel it.

Now that I am paying more attention to the noise, I do notice that once in a while I hear/feel it when turning the the steering wheel. If it is the intermediate shaft, should this be an immediate concern or is it only an annoying thing? I really do appreciate all the input. It really helps me pinpoint the areas I need to check!

I have an 03 Camry XLE with 96,000 miles. The steering wheel squeaks and clicks when turning it at low speeds-I have not heard it above 10 mph. I am told I need a new steering shaft at $1736.00. Is it a danger? Is it covered under some kind of a recall? Does this repair cost seem reasonable?

are you serious on that price? where did you get your quote? :headbang:
if i can remember when the dealer change my intermediate shaft and saw the reciept its was like under $200 (don't remember it anymore but it something like that). are you hearing it while in stop and turning the steering wheel or like making a u-turn and you hear ticking sound.
