    Any 2nd Gens running TC LT get heavy squeaking coming from their arms?

    What do you have the upper arms torqued too? I'm wondering if mine are too tight and smashing the bushing over excessively, I've greased the hell out of the zerks plenty of times.

    Same with the lowers, what torque on the ecentrics? Obviously nothing crazy, but is everyone else just running stock spec torque? Or good n tight....

    mine were bad before...been DD my TC kit for the last 5 years...you just gotta get used to wierd sounds lol

    Remember... Race truck parts make race truck noises...

    The usual culprit are my LCAs.....did you put some grease on the uniballs. There are various recommendations out there. I use, white lithium grease. Spray it right on top, hit a few dips or speed bumps, then take a rag and wipe off the excess so it will not collect dirt (which will ruin the inner teflon lining)

    i use 90ftlbs for the top uca bolt and 80 ftlbs for the lca bolts. loosen up the bolts grease the bushings and re-torque everything . usually if that does not stop the squeaking it means you need new bushings.
    you can over-torque the bolt but it wont compress the bushing any further , the inner sleeve prevents overcompression.
