    Does anyone have some tips or ideas as to the best way to get the 2.5 inch lift to stop squeaking all the time? I just put new bushings in the leaf springs with alot of grease and it helped but hasn't fixed it.

    I haven't done that. Have you heard of this happening often with Tacoma suspension lifts?

    Dakars are notorious for squeaking.

    Edit: I blast mine with a liquid lube every couple months. I found liquid wrench lubricating oil works really well.

    Yes I have heard OME are noisy. I don't know the cause. But I would just spray some good oil between the leaves as this has worked for me on the stock Tacoma and other trucks - and then investigate the cause
