    So i was out offroading with my dad this weekend and got a bunch of mud on my truck... The next day when i woke up to go and wash my truck my leafs were really squeaky.. So after i cleaned it and sprayed the leafs the truck seemed to be fine and then i woke up today and they were squeaky again! Just took it to a power sprayer and cleaned'em up hopefully that will help. Anyone else had this problem? And if so what are some good fixes for it?

    There's a write up on them. Putting rubber in-between the leafs. I may try some rubberized roofing tar and rubber from a mud flap to keep the pieces in the leafs.

    Common problem...temp fix is to jack up the rear by the frame, pry open the leafs and squirt some grease in between the leafs. Look for a DIY in the stickies.

    Toyota also has replacement nylon pads.

    This happens to mine after they get dirty and I rinse them out really good. I usually just spray a little grease between the leaves and it goes away until the next time I go offroading and get them dirty then have to clean them again.

    This is exactly what I've done, I use Mobil 1 synthetic grease and it hasn't squeaked in a few months.

    I either use wd-40 or white lithium grease, whatever I have on the shelf in my garage.
