Rear Suspension Squeaking
Anyone have an idea what would be causing the squeaking? It's making the noise on both sides, when going over bumps, putting a lot of weight in the bed or pushing down on the sides above the wheel well. Is there something that needs to be lubricated or is it more likely something needs to be replaced? It's more of a nuisance than anything as the handling still seems to be fine.

Older vehicle, bushings start to wear, etc. Every leaf spring vehicle I have ever owned squeaks in the back once it gets up in miles.

Ok, sounds about right, can they be lubricated or is the only way to fix them to replace them?

You can probably try forcing some lithium grease in between the leafs and maybe where the bushings are. Hell, even poly bushings squeak, that's why they give you that lube with the bushings before you install them.
