What do you think?

Ever since I got my tires on after my spindle lift, there is a very bad squeak in the back. On every little bump, you can hear it very good. What do yall think the problem is? Maybe I need new shocks?

yeah in my old ranger i heard squeaks all the time until i hit a little bump and part of the leaf spring went through my bed which made it squeak everytime i went over a little bump like yours is doing..it was the metal of part of the leaf spring rubbing against the metal of the bed. id check the brackets and stuff to make sure it isnt broken and punctured through your bed.

Yep, I think the bushings are squeaking because of the longer shackle. Does this sound right?
