    First time poster here! I own a 2004 tac dble cab 4x4 and about 6 months after puchase i'm getting terrible squeaking from the front end. It seems like it may be the UPA bushings...(both sides?), anyone delt w/ this issue?

    thanks

    check the bushings for wear but also check the shocks to make sure they arent leaking or anything, are the springs relatively new? is it lifted? btw welcome to tw :)

    It is lifted 6", but it was all done by previous owner. I will check the papers on how old things are. I sprayed the bushing with silicon, but that did not help at all. I'll dig in soon, i was just hoping to have someone say "yeah that happened to mine....do this and its gone!"

    thanks

    Is it a 6" suspension lift or a combo of body lift and suspension lift?

    If it is a 6" "drop bracket" suspension lift, what is the brand? Fabtech, Trailmaster, ???
