Maybe check that everything is tight? That is a really general statement.

Could you be more specific.? To just say " my truck squeaks what is it" doesn't tell us anything. Does the noise get worse with RPms? Does it happen when braking? Does it happen when going over bumps?When its wet out does the noise get worse? The squeak could be anything from a worn wheel bearing to seized shocks to a fan belt to the dust shield rubbing on a rotor. I Had an awful squeal coming from my truck for the longest time, turned out a stick was stuck in my brake caliper and was rubbing on the rotor.

Don't forget front swaybar bushings if you have it, that's what my squeak was.

Also could be balljoints?
