Mitch I've listened to it a few times now and my thought has been lower ball joint every time I've watch it... Maybe get the needle fitting for your grease gun and add grease
I like that idea. I'll try it

I let the truck sit for 2 days. Sound is still there. So I'll look to add more grease to the lower ball joint and see if that helps. By piercing the ball joint am I risking a possible future failure?

Took the shocks off today to see if I could figure out what this sound was. Well I unbolted them and cycled the suspension to figure out if it was a bushing, ball joint or the shock. Passenger side was all clear. No noise. Which I haven't ever heard anything over there. So that is good.

Drivers side though is the problem. And the problem is the UCA bushings. I am going to go loosen the bolt and re-torque

Here's the video. The coilover is just resting on the CV boot. Only the UCA, spindle and LCA are connected

No more squeak. All the sleeves have been replaced. Found out why the drivers side was squeaking. There was not a speck of grease left on the sleeves or in the bushings. Only on the drivers side. That's why I couldn't move the arms smoothly. Now they have new grease and hopefully a long time of quite operation
