    at low speeds when i take off or decel my truck squeaks, it sounds like its coming from the back though, i checked the dust covers on the brakes and they seem fine and unbent, i have been in the woods lately and went over a few logs so i looked for branches and found none, now im at a dead end, it wont squeak when i bounce in the bed so it aint the springs/shocks and it only squeaks in forward and reverse, regardless of bumps

    Just in the past two weeks started experiencing some squeaking when driving over dips or bumps.

    Seems to be coming from the rear but hard to detect. Even my GF commented on it.

    I have the Toytec ULK with stock tires and 17" wheels on my '09.

    Checked my leafs but everything looks tight, aligned and solid.

    Maybe something to do with the crazy ass snow and ice we've had here in TX this year?

    Side note: Temp drops below 30 and my 'low tire pressure' indicator comes on. Temp rises above 60 and the indicator goes off.

    Things that make you go, Hmm...

    Grease the Jerks on your driveshafts. I had like a high pitched squeak when pressing the gas a certain amount and wheni would becoming to a stop! It was the drive shaft squeaking. Just make sure you get the grease gun all the way on there and cleaning them off with a paper towel before you do it helps. And when you get them on there. Pump grease in until you hear like a bubble pop and they are full. i think there are 6n grease jerks on the rear driveshaft.

    Hope it helps!
