    Anybody have a problem with a creaking sound from the rear leaf spring area? I have a 1995 Access Cab with 40,000 miles. I'm gonna crawl under there and lube it all up but I just wondered if anybody knew where the problem area may be.

    Most likely just your leafs. If you ever take em apart to insert an AAL there's a fix involving some tire inner tubes, a multi tool, some lube, and a paper clip that some people do. . .

    (They actually just put inner tube rubber between the leafs)

    Yeah it was quiet until I got it muddy a few times. I'm just living with it for now. My short term solution was to get a new stereo system to drown that crap out. :dancingbacon:


    But I do appreciate the input from others. I will have to do something about this when the laziness wears off...
