Angry Squeaking Truck After Trailing in Flagstaff Mudd

I went off-roading in Flagstaff a week ago and went through lots of mudd, this was my first time off-roading in my brand new TX Pro

I was shocked to hear my tacoma had started squeaking on the rear drivers side. I asked around and some people said that it was from the mudd in the bushings others mentioned the shocks. I don't know whats causing the squeaking but its driving me nuts! I power washed the mud in the shocks brake pads bushing, pretty much my entire under carriage and it still squeaks. I was suggested to WD40 my bushings/shocks.

Please TacomaWorld give me suggestions, has anyone else experienced this.

If its a groaning noise then its the bushings, Mine went out not to long ago, got them fixed, and they have gone bad again but thats because of my shitty spacer lift

And Welcome to TW!

The squeaking is probably from junk that has got between your rear leaf springs. I'm guessing so, since you say your rear, right side. Mine does it every time I leave the pavement. It should go away on its own in a few days.

thanks for the quick responses!

hmm well I guess the only way to really diagnose the squeaking is to get in there and check out the leaf pack and see if theres something lodged in there, but i couldn't imagine there'd be surface rust already! It's been only one trip through mud thus far and its only a few months old i will have to inspect it.

and its nots a groaning squeak, its like a spring bed squeak

squeaking comes naturally if you play in the dirt.

x2 that fine sand out in the desert is a bitch...i've taken my leaf pack apart so many times to clean and grease. That'll only last a few days then they squeak like hell again! I'm sure bushing are dried out by now too, the truck is a 05 with 120k miles on it...its a good reason to upgrade as any I suppose lol

Just power spray the whole undercarriage and really get in between the leafs. Happens to me all the time, and once they're clean and dry I shoot a little WD-40 between them and it quiets up nicely.
