i didnt say anything offensive. Im simply an american who loves my country, and by that right hates all others. nah, if someone is going to give you a truck for a grand tell me you wouldnt take it...sell it maybe idk, i might keep the ranger, take yota and sell it and use money for the crazy idea in my head

My truck has always squeaked, but it's from over-off-roading it, and my shocks are worn the .... out.

That's true, but the springs are probably just really old and worn out. I wouldn't worry about squeak bc trying to stop a squeak can be a pain in the ***.

yea no problem man, if anything just spray WD-40 on the springs and all over anything you think is squeaking and it might help.

I think the most "common squeakers" are rubber bushings. I would start replacing all the front and rear rubber pushing with new poly ones. That would do it. Leafs aren't fun BTW.
