    so for a while now the rear end'll squeak everytime a load something in the bed, hop on the tailgate of bumper, stoppin and going in the drive thru and now even when you get into the truck. So today i finally took it to the dealer and they said that i either need to grease the bushings or they can add another leaf to the leaf spring but will drastically stiffen the ride. Anyone out there with the same issue?? (accordin to the dealer all newer tacos have this issue) and if so did greasin it rid of the squeaking??? :confused::confused::confused:

    The greasing of the springs will quiet things down for a while but it will need to be maintained. When mine got squeeky I took the truck into a local spring shop and the inserted small plastic spacers and it worked like a charm.

    Edited to add.....I think there has been a lot of success with the above method as well^^
