    k&n drop in,
    My 2011 tacoma with 29k miles on it squeaks when I hit Little bumps in the road
    It just started today out the blue. I didn't take it off road or hit anything. It's sound like nuts coming from the front of the truck. Anybody knows anything about this?

    Are you sure its not your butt cheaks rubbing together?

    :D (sorry, I can't believe I just said that, but what the hell? It's late..)

    It could be tons & tons of different things..... You need to see if you can reproduce it.
    #1) Bounce up & down on the suspension. Can you hear it?
    #2) Take the truck to a carwash and spray out the rear leaf springs good.
    NOTE: When the leaf springs are wet, the squeek WILL stop. Wait a couple days until everything dries out before you think the problem is gone.

    Report back...
    I've got squeeks too now. But its the rear shocks squeeking when I'm running heavy loads.

    Spray some WD40 between the butt cheeks. That should stop the squeaks.

    Most likely spring silencers. Take it to the dealer as you are still under warranty and let them worry about where its coming from. Your diagnosis will not affect what the tech will do.

    Thanks guys I'm taking it back to the dealership to see what's up. I just don't like taking things in for repair not knowing what could be the problem. Also my butt cheeks are ok. Lol

    My '09 has been squeaking from the rear for a while now. I just don't know what I should do about it. I already have the TSB leafs so I am not sure what else I could do.

    It's a totally different tsb between each leaf on the end there is a plastic silencer pad that wears out. About $5 to fix with Toyota parts or an inner tube

    Man I feel like a dumb ass but I am happy. It was my back seat making the noise. I guess it wasn't lock in all the way. No squeaking for me. Thanks for the help guys.

    Don't feel bad, when I got my first car I took it to the dealership because I couldn't get both blinkers to stop going at the same time, turns out the tech guy flipped off my hazard light switch. Felt like a complete diptard. :eek:
