Help Front end Squeaking
Good day to all, Is anyone experiencing a squeaking sound in the front suspension? It seems to happen when I'm taking off and as i pick up speed it disappears,. Sound like rubber:confused: Can't figure it out:confused: If anyone had experience this and solved it i would really appreciate it if you could direct me to were the queaking problem is coming from.

Have you checked to see if your tires are rubbing your UCA's or your fenders?

I may have found the issue to the front end squeaking. (time will tell) When the hood is open and you bounce the truck you cant hear a thing the second i closed the hood the noise came right back. Couldn't find where anything was scratching until we looked at the hood latch. Paint was being scrapped off the bottom of the hook so my guess is that is was metal to metal noise from the front. After adding some lube i have not heard it in now 24hrs. Im sure when it dries again it will come right back so ill need to figure out a way to adjust it or see if toyota knows how to adjust the latch. Ill be back if it ends up not being the solution.
