    Sounds like you and your girl need to use the other seats.;) JK. Might try spraying some WD40 on the springs under the seat.

    i believe there is a TSB on this issue.

    TSB 0288-08 for the squeaky seat. Here it is from mechanic at toyota:

    Sorry to sound like an idiot, but what exactly does TSB stand for? I thought it was just for the springs underneath the rear end of the truck.

    Had this issue and gleaned the net. At any rate, what I found was that the four seat cushion bolts (12mm) were loose. I had taken this seat apart less than ten months ago and tightened and found out they loosened again. I removed, again yesterday, and re-tightened - I added Loctite blue (242) and the squeak is now gone. Don't start hacking the pins without checking these seat pan bolts first. My trunk - 1997 Tacoma.
