    I have had a bad squeaking sound on the left side of my taco. Checked the ball joints all good, just had new A-Arms put on. Any suggestions? It is not consistent, some days its bad, some days you cannot hear it. Only happens on bumps. Plus since I had my adjustable A-arms put on when I back up and cut my wheel hard all the way to the left It feels like my front tire is rubbing, but never did that before, anyone ever have something similar?

    Never satisfied
    So i guess its coming from the front? If you canged out your A-arms, try double check the grease..i did that on my older toy and had that problem. I didnt have enough grease with the ball joints

    When my wheel bearings went out there was a bit of squeeking coming from the wheel. Have you checked the bearings?

    sometimes the ball joints just need to "wear in" for a few thousand miles and they will stop squeaking. lots of oil will help. was there squeaking before your new a arms? if it was there from when you got the truck new and mostly happens on bumps it could be the rear leafs. mine made a lot of squeaking but now there worn in. some guys on here were taking their trucks to the dealer and getting pads installed between the leafs to dampen the sound but in Hawaii that probably wont happen. I got used to mine but now it went away.

    Make sure to check that anything you loosened or took off was torqued properly. Haven't heard any squeaks since and was immediately fixed.
