I've started to noticed that coming from my front end area, it's got a over baring squeaking noise every time I go over a bump, uneven roads or even when I'm turning left or right. auto parts guy says it's my (tie rod ends) but the bushings still look good! I've actually greased everything down and it stopped for a while up until I washed the truck and it came back! The noise is embarrassing and I need it to go away!!!!:sad:!!! Any pressure I put on the front end, like a incline as far as starting up a hill, or turning at a stopping point, the noise occurs!!

Any ideas would be super helpful!!!

Do you have a leveling, body or suspension kit on it? Mine started doing it after I put my Bilstein leveling kit in it. I believe mine is coming from tierod as it's pretty much shot. I will be getting it replaced over the next few weeks, so I'll let you know if it goes away.

Haven't done any suspension work to it! And the tie rods look fine... Maybe the upper control arms need replacing....

Yeah man that sounds good, keep me posted..

Thanks,

Bumping this because I have the same issue which has been getting progressively worse for months, and now it is truely horrible. I'm running Bilstein 5100s on the front.

Any solutions found yet?

I've taken it to the dealer multiple times. Most recently they replaced both UCA, tie rods and bushings (all recalls I think and all free of charge). They've also tried cleaning and greasing.

Made no difference.

I have read on other forums that Bilsteins can cause excessive squeaking if the hardware (nuts, washers, etc) aren't put on in the right order or if anything is lose.

I'm going to try tightening the 3 visible nuts on the top of each mount tonight.

greasing the bushings is only teporary if there not greasible. it could be the sway bar bushings. Good luck
