    So a week ago, today, I basically rebuilt my rear suspension. I took out EVERY bit of so I could re grease it all.

    Well lately I have a VERY loud and annoying squeak. Only when I'm going in reverse. Like its to the point that it gets really embarrassing.

    It sounds like rubber and a metal item are rubbing together, but not constantly. Every half rotation of the tire/wheel it squeaks. My friend says it sounds like its coming from underneath the cab near me... I dont know what it could be.



    What do you guys think it could be????:confused:

    When you put it back together, did it settle to the same height or it standing a little taller. Could be the new angle?

    Try some lithium grease on the rubber piece the leaf spring sits on. Not sure what it's called.

    I took it apart so I could wire brush off the rust, dirt and old paint. I regreased and repainted all of it.

    Everything was tightened down with a impact wrench and then checked with a torque wrench.

    I think axle wrap has something to do with it as well. I think its my carrier bearing. Everything else is very secure.

    No squeaking of any kind when I'm jumping on the bed. That means a great regrease job. :cool:

    But yes. There is ALOT of play and it is at a very extreme angle. I guess some of those jumps I did before.... I'm now paying the price for

    I had a squeaking too, and it was exactly as you explained. Turns out, it was just my tonneau rubbing against my cab :p

    My lift probably had something to do with it too
