    I have almost 70,000 on my 2008 truck and the driver seat has began to make a creaking noise. I took it in to the dealer, cause the sound is annoying, and the service manager rode with me and said it is the springs and they are just getting a little wear on them. I really don't know what to think:confused:

    I hear the noise the most when I am driving and making a turn and my weight shifts in the seat.... Any ideas?

    There is a thread about removing the seat and cutting off a pin they use for assembly at the factory. My 2008 R/C and 2010 A/C both needed it after 10,000 miles but I'm 6-4 and 275 pounds.

    I had this problem and it ended up being a little plastic bushing on the bottom part of the seatbelt. The dealer fixed it under warranty, so I'm not sure hot to fix it exactly. It was making the same creaking noise as you are describing. What you can try doing is putting your head next to the seatbelt latch and slowly rock the latch back and forth and see if it creaks.
