Front End Squeaks
 
I just recently noticed that my front end is squeaking. I have no idea what it could be. I have the 6 inch RCX lift with a 1.25 inch body lift. Bilstein struts as well. could it be my struts, or the body lift. Any insight on this would help alot.

Definitely start with spraying some lube on all the bushings throughout the kit. Get someone to jounce the vehicle while you are underneath it to try and pinpoint the squeak as well. That's what helped me eventually find mine.

It might be your body lift though. And if it is there's no way to fix it that I know of. I know of a few members who have removed their body lift for that very reason.

I had the squeak and it turned out strut nut was not tight at all. Shop had to re do the job and tighten correctly. I had 1/2 gap between nut and strut plate :doh: took a pic with my phone to actually see in there
