suspension squeak!
Okay guys, new to the forum here so first of all, hi!

i just recently bought my 2008 ram 1500 trx4, and just over the past few days the suspension on the drivers side has begun to squeak badly, but only over small bumps, doesn't squeak while turning or big bumps...
i got underneath it, saw no cracked boots or bad bushings, but i silicone sprayed everything anyway, which seemed to make it a lot worse,
anyone have any ideas about what this is? or how to fix it? it's slowly driving me insane, i have to blast my music just so i can bare to drive it..

any advice would be appreciated,

thanks guys

Have you had any amount of weight on that side more than the passengers? I have known shocks to be blown out because of over weighted areas over them.

not really, i personally only weigh 210lbs, so it's not really me, and the shocks look fine, although hard to replace, they arent leaking or anything they both look good.

I had the same problem, turned out to be my tailgate.

Check your sway bar end links. I had a squeak in the front end and couldn't find it until I noticed the boot was torn at the base of the end link.
