Ever since mudding I hear my truck squeak

Went mudding and cleaned the whole thing with a pressure washer yet the truck still squeaks. What would be the cause or how could I fix it? Thanks

Yep, mud will definitely do that. Ball joints, bushings, leafs. You're going to have to deal with the squeaking now, it's all part of getting in the mud.

Leafs? Where are you hearing the squeaks. I'm guessing dirt/mud in the leafs

I usually just pressure wash the crap out of the suspension components and that seemed to do the trick.

Just went mudding a couple of weeks ago and came back with a squeak too. I only heard the squeak in reverse though ... turned out to be a U-Joint issue

Try spraying and cleaning your leafs and suspension first, if that doesn't work next I'd check the U-Joints
