Rear end & suspension question

So two questions,

I have the locker mod, love it, my question; How well do you think the rear end would fair if I locked it on pavement and dropped the clutch of a rev'd motor (just a line, no turning)?

Number 2, I have taken my truck wheeling and driven through mud/water and now my truck squeaks when I take off or drive over anything (if my suspension in compressed or extended). I think it is probably dirt in the suspension or the polyurethane rubber thing that is on the ends of the strut. Has anyone else had this problem? I tried to spray it off really good, but the problem persists. Could it be possible that I have to lubricate something?

Thanks for the help.

Josh

IMO no locker mod needed for the 09 and up trucks since there are plenty of traction options.

It does suck when you have your truck all nice and pretty to go take a chic on a date & I hope they don't here me pulling up, but once they are inside I just turn the radio up.

Is that before or after you give them the candy?

It will work perfectly until it doesn't. Why would you want to even try it? Ok, maybe if it was a work truck I've been known to test the latest automotive technology on rental cars over the years.
