    Hi

    I have a bad squeak coming from my rear leafs set at option 3. I was looking around and saw this. I’ve used fluid film between leafs and everything and nothing helps

    Is that part of the bushing coming out? Did you torque it properly?
    I torqued everything when I lowered the truck off the lift. No problem with mine, maybe you over torqued it?

    But did you set it down first before torque? I made the mistake of torquing the front UCA bolt the first time I did it while it was still jacked up and it binded (what looks like yours are doing). Had to replace my bushing cause it tore it up.

    I am a bit confused; so this is the second time you installed it and you torqued it after setting it to the ground and on its own weight correct?
    On that topic, I do think you need a new bushing. It looks pretty torn to me and that may be the source of the squeaks.

    Where can I find the bushings? Any kind would work or something specific?

    Ok, I gotcha.
    I think that bushing is bad. May fix your squeaks after replacing it.
    Edit: contact Icon, they may have a kit to just replace the bushing.

    It seems to be on both sides and the bushings are in a good shape there

    Would misaligned leaves have something to do? Like they are not properly lined up
