    I just started hearing a squeaking noise on the front driver side of my truck near the suspension or the Total Chaos UCA's!!! It only squeaks when it hits a bump or going up or down on the driveway. I have 5100's up front with OME springs and TC UCA's. Any suggestions?:confused:

    Okay, thanks guys! I was kind of figuring it was the UCA's. I'll try it out when I get home tonight!

    I responded to your PM. If the UCA's werent greased propperly when installed, you may have to take them off, and grease the bushing propperly. They may need to be pulled out of the UCA, then, rub grease all over them, and the sleave. Then, reinstall. They shouldnt squeak at all.
