Default Squeaky suspension?

Anyone else get this? It started for me about a month ago and is steadily getting worse. Primarily comes from the right side, and it only happens on the little bumps on the road, where you feel vibration, not the bigger bumps/dips. But it has recently started happening a bit on the left side. It's like a high pitched chirping sound and is so bad that I can even hear it when the radio is turned up to 20. The only way for me to avoid it is to drive with the windows open so wind noise drowns it out. I might also note I am talking about the front suspension

Should this be something they can fix at a dealer? It makes driving this truck a lot less enjoyable - and sometimes not enjoyable at all if I don't feel like having the radio turned up or windows open. I realize it's a truck and a vehicle made for work and to be worked but this is driving me crazy and I feel like it should not be happening at all

Just take it to the dealer. That's what the warranty is for.

before the trip to the dealer, hit your brake pedal from the side. Mine squeaks like crazy and when I hit bumps, it makes noise. If I hit it sideways with my foot, it duplicates the sound. I haven't taken it to the dealer yet as it was just in the body shop for 6 weeks after my accident. I need to catch up on work before I can send it in again.

No it's not the brake pedal. Mine makes a squeak when you hit it on the side like you are saying too but it is different when I hit bumps.

Of course, had an appointment at the dealer today and everything but it didn't make the noise. Figures... Tomorrow I have a 200 mile round trip to do and I would bet all my money that it will happen the whole time.

I noticed a weird squeaking noise on my truck since the day I bought it. I would only hear it when I was traveling slow and going over bumps. I thought it was the spare tire not being fully tightened, but I discovered that under the driver side there was a little weight thing hanging by only one bolt and it was barely threaded. So after I fixed that, the noise completely went away.

Good luck. I have a rattle/squeak coming from the right front (around passenger area). Have only 800 miles and have had less than a month. My truck has been at the dealer since Monday, they have adjusted the hood, secured the hood liner, tightened every bolt (they say). Got a call yesterday afternoon saying they "think" it is coming from the right front shock. They are going to replace the shock to see if that corrects the problem.

Still waiting to hear from the dealer service department . I don't have a lot of faith or confidence in dealer service departments (any brand). Hopefully this corrects the rattle/squeak.

UPDATE: In the event someone else may have this issue I wanted to update this post. It turns out that the problem was the "right front body mount bolt" that needed to be replaced and/or re-torqued. There were a number of other things they did prior to (in troubleshooting), including replacing the front shock but it does appear this fixed this issue.

Well I thought it was probably the right front shock but today I bumped into my right step bar and there was the squeak. I'm about 95% certain that is the problem. It was rattling once before right after the dealer installed it and I had them fix it then.

I think mine is doing the same thing, but when i tap the brakes it stops. Let off the brake and it starts doing it again. I'm woundering if there is the slightest bit of play in the brake pads and it is rubbing between the pad and calipar. It has done this from about 5k-40k miles now
