    2" lift SwayAways
    I have a 2007 Quad Cab that I lifted 2" with SwayAways and blocks. One and half years have been fine but now the front driverside squeaks loudly over speed bumps and going into driveways.
    Truck has 32,000 miles on it and is a 6 speed. I had the squeaky clutch issue and took it back to the dealer under warranty which they covered but I know they won't touch the front end as they'll blame it on the SAW coilovers.
    Anybody have any expierence with squeaks in the front end? I've looked over everything twice and nothing is obvious so the next move will probably be pulling the SAW coilover out to look it over real close for any signs of a rub.

    thanks for any help.

    I think that I have the clutch squeak issue, but it wont be under warranty anymore. How did they fix this? sorry for off topic.

    I have the same problem and it started about a year after I bought it. I have an '07 TRD Sport and that squeak drives me nuts. Took it to the dealership and they said they needed to remove the rear leaf spring and re-lubricate it and they wanted $160. There's also a rattling sound on rear axle that my mechanic can't figure out. Every time I go over a bump it's a rattling sound. Any ideas?

    On the rear leafs of my chevy trucks there used to be rectangular pieces of nylon or some kind of plastic that you could put in between the leafs and it worked very well to quiet them down.
    This is my first expierence with coilovers so other then pulling them out and doing an intense inspection and spraying them down with silicone I don't know what to do. or.........
    Just turn up the radio and try to ignore it.

    These trucks and these aftermarket products should not do this kind of thing. My truck only has 30,000 miles on it.

    I think I'll write to SwayAway to see if they have any customer service.
