    My suspension in squeaking alot. Sounds like a old swing set. :mad: It's a 08 TRD Sport 4x4 with 13000 miles. Is this normal? I took it to the dealer and they said everything was fine. Where would I use WD40 or grease to try and fix this? I do go off roading and hit the trails pretty hard. Alot of water crossings. I'm guessing thats what caused it.

    Water can make it squeek. See if you can have a buddy push down on the front, and in the bed, while you are under the truck. That way you can identify where the squeak is comming from. Then attack it as you see fit. :)

    I can actually shake the truck from under and it seems like it is coming from the leaf springs

    I had the same problem. I cant hear it in the cab but when you get out or rock it you can hear it. Brought it to the dealership and they greased up the leaf spring. The problems still hasnt stopped. On the dealership worksheet they explained what they did but added "springs will likley need replaced". Whether they will or not is another story.
