    My AAL keeps twisting in the leaf packs and it ends up hitting the brace on the front of the pack and squeaking. All I do to fix it is whack it about 8-9 times with a dead blow to get it back inline with the rest of the leaf pack. It's just kind of annoying to have to do that. It always happens the same way on either side. The front of the leaf moves towards the outside of the leaf pack. I've had to do it twice now (once on each side) about 1 week apart.

    Retorque your u-bolts after realigning the AALs. The 37 ft-lbs in at least some of the FSMs is some kind of error, 75-85 lubed is the correct range. I did 85. Then retorque several more times after a couple hundred miles each until they don't move anymore. That should cure it.

    They also help axle wrap. Have fixed my squeak completely.

    Awesome thanks for the tips. I'll re-torque them tonight.
