    i hit a hole in the parking lot yesterday and i think thats what caused the sound. my dad thinks its rear shocks. we jumped up and down on the rear bumper and i heard the similar sound. i mostly hear it after a complete stop and im easing off the bakes. anything else it could be please let me know!!:(:confused:

    Search for Leaf Spring TSB. I think that is what the problem is, but i am not sure what year(s) it applies to.

    To locate the noise, Have someone move arond in the bed, enough to move the suspension, if you cant hear it, touch different suspension components with your hand. You may be able to feel it. If its the springs, take a presure washer to them. It could be just some dirt.

    You can disassemble the leafs and fix the issue. There is something in between the leafs that fails I believe. You want to lower (as in slam) yours correct?

    Disconnect the rear shocks and try to duplicate the sound. That will tell you whether or not it is the leafs.

    After off roading in mud or water my leaf spring start making a squeeking noise. I took it to the dealer once and they said dirt had gotten on the friction pads between the leafs and possibly in the bushings.

    They said all they did to fix it was spray some sylicone based lubricant with teflon on the leaf spring friction pads and bushings. The noise went away for a year or so.

    A few years later, after my truck was out of warrenty the noise came back. So, I purchased some of that spray and now the squeak is gone again.

    If will eventually evaporate. Use something like white lithium grease.
