    You're not going to freakin' believe this. My truck has this "squeek" from time to time and it drives me NUTS. Today when I was removing my OEM manifolds, I happened to see a black material that was used kind of like a splash guard next to the drivers side intake manifold. It is held on by black, plastic grommets and they are kind of loose. I took my hand and tapped on the black plastic and SQUEEK, SQUEEK, SQUEEK!!! I couldn't believe it. A stupid plastic grommet was lose and squeeking against a brace that holds it in place.

    I'm going to try to put some silicone under the grommet and am considering removing it all together.

    I'll snap some pics in a day or two and show everyone where this annoying noise is coming from. The cool part is you can lay on your back, get under the truck, touch the part and make it freakin' squeek. AMAZING!!!

    OMG I need the pics. Please I BEG YOU. I have the squeek!! The pitch is so high it's hard to locate; At first I thought it was my Toytec AAL in the rear, but after putting a bit of grease on the friction pad the noise was still there. Now I actually think it's coming from the front end.

    I can reproduce it when I stand in my driver's or passenger side doorway, 'jump' up and down, and make the truck rock. Is that what you had too?

    Yours might just be your springs like you though, or a bushing. He's talking about some of that waffle aluminum around the engine.

    Go to your truck and stick your head by the front wheel. Look between the top/center of the wheel and the splash guard. You will see a rectangular, black piece of plasitc with 5 or 6 black clips holding it in place. Take your hand and rapidly tap the black plastic piece and if this is the culprit, you'll hear the squeek. What I did to fix the noise was to take the thing off, rotate the clips and reinstall. The piece is just a cheap guard to keep water and mud off of your tie rod and exhaust manifolds. I was tempted to take it off and keep it off, but wasn't sure if it would be a good idea.

    If that doesn't help, I can snap a picture.
