    Went mudding and cleaned the whole thing with a pressure washer yet the truck still squeaks. What would be the cause or how could I fix it? Thanks

    Yep, mud will definitely do that. Ball joints, bushings, leafs. You're going to have to deal with the squeaking now, it's all part of getting in the mud.

    Leafs? Where are you hearing the squeaks. I'm guessing dirt/mud in the leafs

    I usually just pressure wash the crap out of the suspension components and that seemed to do the trick.

    Clean your leaf packs and then spray WD-40 or something similar, this will at least let you know if they are the culprits.

    Let me guess. Also when you accelerate?
    It's most likely the leaf pack. Pressure wash it and if still isn't gone use wd-40

    Just went mudding a couple of weeks ago and came back with a squeak too. I only heard the squeak in reverse though ... turned out to be a U-Joint issue

    Try spraying and cleaning your leafs and suspension first, if that doesn't work next I'd check the U-Joints

    had the same issue. when u wonna wash your truck next time, go to a wash it yourself place with those pressure washers. I shot that in between each leaf on both sides and seemed to clear it all up. it worried me at first too but, simple fix! Good luck
