Default HELP! Squeaky Bushings!

Ok guys & girls...

I need HELP!

It's a very easy question (well, can't be that easy if I don't know the answer, but you catch my drift ) but for some reason, I cant seem to get anyone I know to help me answer it.

I put a leveling kit in my 2013 dodge ram 1500 quad cab sport. Every so often the bushings get dry & squeak. I usually have my mechanic lube them up when I take the truck to be serviced.

Here recently it has started squeaking (Maybe I forgot to ask last time?) and my next service isn't for a while. The dealership told me to stop in anytime and they would stop the squeaking....but im not really feeling like driving all the way there, especially for a squeak that I can fix.

I just need to know whereeeee the bushings are....can someone give me a diagram of where I am to spray...I know its a silly question...but I don't want to rely on someone else to do something and I know I can do....PLS the squeak is driving me crazy!

Take a more expensive version of WD40 and look for any rubber grommets/bushings both front and rear. use the little hose that comes with it. It pinpoints your spray and therefore using less. and just spray each one you find. What you find on the left should be on the right for the most part. Make sure all nuts and bolts are tight. Shocks have a upper mount and a lower mount. Both have bushings. One shock on the end of each axle out towards the tire. Make sure those bolts are tight. You can look in your owners Manual for a labeled picture of the front and rear suspension. If not you could probably Google your truck suspension and print out pictures to take out to the truck with you. No grease fittings anymore. At least for the most part. You would be amazed at what you can learn just by doing stuff like that. GOOD LUCK BUD.
