    I installed my lift about a month ago, what would cause this? For the record, I took out the overload leaf and put the AAL in. It's the HS-3 progressive from HeadStrong.

    Unfortunately it is normal. I still get squeaks and I left the overload in with the ICON 1.5 Progressive AAL I put in. The stock leafs suck.

    Did you check the battery?

    I'm just messing with you, its pretty common for squeaky leafs. Lift the back of the truck up by the frame, spray some white lithium grease in between the leafs, and lower it back down. It took a couple of times doing this over the span of a few months but now they are quiet as can be.

    Gotcha. I assume I can use the white lithium grease in a spray can. Thanks!

    Double check that everything is tight, if you haven't already.
