This is driving me crazy!!!

Almost ever since i got my truck the back end always makes a kind of squeaky-chirping sound when i hit little bumps, Im thinking its just the leaf spring but idk and whenever i let off the brakes it makes a squeaking sound from it releasing. Is there anything i can do to fix this or is it normal? Thanks

just hit one set of bushings with WD40 at a time and go for a little drive, when you stop hearing it you found it.

lower ball joints..? jack up the truck from the control arm.. put a big bar under the tire, and pry it up, watch the lower ball joint to see how much play you have, mine moved like 1/4"+

(not supposed to do that :p )




or you can just turn the radio up
it works better than WD 40 in some cases
