    Guys just picked up a 02 Taco that has a 3" suspension lift, that has Bilstein shocks both front & rear with what apperars to be coils in the front as well. Sorry first truck and dont know anything about the lifts.

    Anyway as im driving it is sqeauking pretty much and its loud.. Is there any service that can be done to elminate the sqeauk? Thought about hosing the crap out of everything with WD-40?

    Any help would be much appreciated...

    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    Determine if it is the leafs, first, which is pretty common. Usually there are fricyion pads (plastic) near the tips of each leaf, and dirt gets in there and can cause it. Jack up the truck to take the pressure off, pry open, clean, and spray on some...crap. I forget what people use. MTGirl found something that works. And the bicycle tube fis works too. Search for "bicycle" tube under the suspension forum. Likewise, search for "squeaky leafs."
