    people have been having alot of troubles with the wheels, not sure what to say that wouldn't involve alot of labor.... as for the squeaks, mine just started as well... almost 60k here.

    The rims- Some got bad prep/coatings- Talk to the dealer about getting the re-finished
    The Rough ride- Check out all the info about the Harsh Ride TSB
    The squeaking- Clean the springs with high pressure water and spray the bushings with some dry moly lube...See if that does it. Might have to get into the spring pack and lube those too.

    My '05 started squeakin a while back. Took it into the dealership and they worked on it. Went away for about a month. Then it came back. I sprayed mine with a pressure washer and it went away for a while. But, it's back again. I haven't tried any grease or lube or anything yet. But spray the springs with a pressure washer if you want it to go away until you can really get it taken care of.

    Can't really see a reason to take it in here... I'm lifted :p I'm sure the guys here are nice enough that they might, but I'm not worried about it, I'll get to it eventually.
