Squeaking noise

ive had a squeak coming from (im assuming) my front shocks. any time i go over a speed bump or a dip in the road its squeaks. ive read a couple times on here that if your shocks are blown they will bounce 3 or 4 times before stabilizing. mine dont do that. is there anything i can do aboutt he squeak, or are mine blown too?

I know my rear leaf springs squeak all the time. But if your sure its in the front could be some worn out bushings.

i know, the rears. just because your truck squeaks when you fronts hit the pavement doesn't mean the rear of the truck doesn't move.

try some lube on the leaf shackle. or spray the whole pack. if its the front I am not sure what it would be. but it sounds like what mine did. if i backed out straight it usually wouldn't squeak, but if i turned the wheel while backing out it made the rear leaf packs squeak.

Walk around your truck and push down on each corner of the bumpers. That is all you need to do to locate the squeak. If it is in the rear, then you probably hae rust or dirt inbetween the leafs. If it is in the front, then you probably have dirt in the coil assembly or it may need grease.
