Front End Squeaking
Well, for the longest time my front end has been squeaking when going over bumps, or abruptly stopping. I thought for sure it was my ball joints. I was all set to order all new ball joints, end links, and all other pertinent front end bushings to get it to stop. So on my final attempt to figure out what was squeaking before i started ordering, I found it! It wasnt any of the bushings, or joints, or anything. It turned out to just be my coil spring rubbing against a part of the bottom cup it sits in.
So tomorrow, after fishing (thats right, going fishing on a Wednesday!) Im gonna either spin the coil spring so it doesnt rub, or put something in between it and the cup. Ill let you all know how it goes.
So, for those of you with squeaky front ends.. before you replace parts, have your wife get under the truck and hold onto stuff while you jump on the bumper. you might find out your springs are the culprit.
