    I noticed my truck has started squeeking after wheeling it. It is coming from the back drivers side.

    The dealer is going to change my leafs for me but it got me thinking, what if it happens again?

    Anyone experience this and is there a way to avoid it from happening?

    all you really gotta do is pressure wash the springs really good. mud/dirt got in there and is causing the squeaks. you can put some grease in between the leafs after it dries too........just gotta cram it in there really. just wash real good after wheeling...............shouldnt squeak too bad then.

    Quit "wheeling" if you don't like squeaks, odd noises, dirt and damage to your truck. 4x4ing is hard on rigs. Can't have a pristine road rig and offroad it all the time.

    And sometimes you can get a continuous squeek from dirt/rocks getting stuck in your calipers/rotors.

    The best way to clear that up, is drive in reverse and press the brakes.
