I found WD-40 works on the short term, and Lithium grease is always a no no because it collects all sorts of dust and debris making the situation worse.

I was wondering, have any of you tried anti-sieze, the stuff used on caliper sliders?

I most recently tried this and it's worked really well:

Spray the hinges with dish soap/water thoroughly to clean them of old dirt/grease.

Dry as best as you can.

Use motor oil in a dropper to drip oil onto the top of the hinge bushing areas and open/close the door a lot to work it in.

This seems to work very well.

Try what I did. I think the key is to clean it first.

I just did the silicon based lube. All four of my doors sounded like a haunted house. Now they all feel like buttah, baby!

Only time will tell. And I agree, these are new trucks, they shouldn't be sounding like they're 20+ years old. But even if I have to reapply a few times a year, atleast it's solvable.

Heavy Duty LubriMatic cleared it right up for me.

this is an old thread but i'm glad you revived it, since i've been having this issue for awhile and thought i was the only one. i was thinking the door must be loose/unbalanced somehow since the squeak always comes back. WD-40 only fixed it temporarily, but i never thought to try using the garage door lubricant (which I think I even have lying around somewhere).

Default WD-40 For Sure.............

Works for me!!!

About a week or so ago when I left in the morning (cold) I heard this sound like when you get sand blowing against your windshield. I thought it was raining.

It would just kind of "crackle". It about drove me nuts. It sounded like maybe a plastic sound from the dashboard rubbing up against the windshield. Now that the weather has warmed up it has gone away. Don't know why I would hear this now as the truck is 6 years old. Maybe it's me getting old???

Anyway, nothing worse than weird noises.

If WD-40 or Duct Tape can't fix it, time to trade it off................
