Most likely it is the springs. You can wedge a screwdriver between the springs and pull out the silencer pads. Then clean them up, lube them with a good grease, and reinstall them. There are four pads per a leaf pack, eight total.

first...you need to pressure wash them real good, then use a dry moly type lube and spray between each spring and the anti friction pads..spray them real good too.

Is it hard to take out the silencer pads?

No. You just need a big screwdriver and a hammer. maybe some pliers to help remove the silencer pads if the screwdriver isn't big enough to squeeze your fingers in there. Maybe you could use a pry bar.

I used "Simple Green" to clean the pads and space between the leafs. Then I sprayed the pads and in between the leafs w/ "3-in-One" high-performance lubricant spray that I bought @ Autozone. I did this from another mod somewhere in here. I did this 6-26-10 and still I'm squeaky clean (or no squeak).

I had to use my jack on my hitch to get my truck high enough.


The spray I used.




I marked my pads w/ "white out" to remember which direction they go in.



Where my pad goes. Or came from.


This is a very simple procedure and like I said on top, I've been squeak free for three months. Drove 826 miles towing a TT through lots of rain and been driving it in above 100 degree weather around town here in Frisco, Tx.
