    Anyone else have rear springs that make a lot of noise? Every time I start out from a stop I can hear it loud and clear. They do the same on the move, I just can't hear it as well.

    I'm working with stock rear leafs and out of warranty for the TSB. Don't know that that would make the difference anyway?

    Jack the vehicle up so the rear suspension is hanging, get a can of HD silicone spray, and soak the bushings really good. Then, grease in between each leaf in the pack, mostly at the ends of each leaf where the most pressure is. you may need to pry the leafs apart just a bit to get the grease in there.

    Did the same thing when mine were squeaking. It has been about a month or so since I did and I haven't had a squeak since.
