hello all! it's been awhile. So I have this odd squeaking in the front of my truck. Seems like a suspension issue?? but when I get on it, the squeaking gets louder!! I guess something needs lubed?? Also, no squeaking when braking. So do I need new shocks?struts? Sounds like the whole bottom of my truck needs grease!!!!!

Just drove seven hours from Myrtle Beach coming home from vacation in the truck. The noise is almost gone. Not squeaking now but sometimes still when I get on it there is a "fluttering" sound. I do believe the squeaking described in above post comes and goes. Thoughts???

Can you narrow it down at all... front, back, right side, etc. If I recall correctly, the older models had squeaky rear leaf springs.

Hey Mark sir, it is definitely in the front when it squeaks. Yesterday when I was rolling with no throttle there was a little squeak, but when I hit the gas; the squeaking the fluttering, whatever got louder.Just ran out for pizza and barely a peep!?

Try rocking the truck while it's sitting in the driveway... if you hear the same noise then it is probably the shocks!
