I had the TSB done about 2 months ago. While backing out of my garage they squeeke/grind like they are 50 years old. I only notice it at low speeds. Is anyone else experiencing the noise? I think it might even be coming from just one side.

Did you have them retourqed after install. Check the leafs, see if they are coming into contact w/anything...

I had a squeak after installing my AAL to the TSB leafs. allingned them up, and retourqed the U-bolts. No issues since.

I went with 90 ftlbs... Not sure if thats 100% correct, but it worked. I got the Gade 8 extended U-bolt from Toytech, and 90 ftlbs felt just about right...
