My right side in the front makes a squeeky/creeky noise if I hit a big bump or some one gets in the truck on that side...I think it could be the step bar...is this possible?

Most likely...Are there any type of rubber bushings that aren't greased? I know on suspension components, if you have urethane bushings and you don't lube them, they'll squeak really bad.

Well I don't think the step bars would squeak, they could creek as they are just bolted on. But if it's a rubber type squeak it the front suspension. Otherwise just tighten down the bolts on the step bar, and that might do it.

Best thing to do if it really bugs you is to have a friend step up on the step bar, and try to get the sound to occur over and over. You would be trying to locate the source of it while it squeaks away.

Hope that helps.
