rear suspension squeak...

the rear suspension on my truck squeaks when i go over a semi-large bump. Is it possible that its just the strut and maybe a little wd-40 would cure it? I like to hear my exhaust and that little squeak is driving me nuts lol

Prob the little rubber piece that goes between the leafs fell out. Not an issue of any just makes that squeaky noise. I have noticed alot of rangers have that noise lol.

^^ditto, the traction bars made it a little worse in my case tho. I just need to get new leaf springs.

yeah i sprayed my leafs down with wd-40 and it was gone for a week or so, maybe some lithium grease would last longer.

in the winter my squeeks go away.. but in the spring and summer, with the windows down, it returns, lol. it annoys the hell out of me. i was wondering if there was anything to get rid of it, but i guess all i can do is keep greasing stuff up

I kinda like it when i'm going slow offroad... it feels like I'm doing something cool when i driving over bumps in my "terraced" driveway.
