    There's a cable that comes from the cab to about mid-line under the truck, hooks to a bellcrank, then cables to the rear end area. You tighten the bolt on the bellcrank.

    Hit it with PB Blaster and let it soak for a while first. Mine truck has never seen snow or salt but it was still crusty.
