    I have noticed a squeak coming from the rear of the truck, and I'm 99% sure it's for my leaf springs.
    I have 2005 TRD, and did an AAL when I upgraded my shocks.

    How do I fix?

    Cheers

    Hey Owen, are you sure its not your bushings ?? Although I think the OP that did the write up on a fix should be incorporated, I recently rebuilt my rear leaf pack & after a couple weeks (& a couple offroad trips) they started sqeaking like hell, I took them back off & dressed the areas where any spring ends made contact, re installed only to figure out that it was my spring bushings making all the racket. So I partially dissasembled the rears again, took bushings apart at the shackle , greased the hell out of them (I'm sure some will say its not a good idea to apply petroleum grease to rubber bushings because it degrades some types of rubber) Anyway put it all back together & the sqeaks so far are gone, they may dissentigrate but the point is all sqeaks aren't spring related & sometimes it is the bushings.... good luck how ever you apply the fix buddy....;)
