old age sounds coming from 85 ramcharger

Ramcharger, Trailduster & Power Wagon Grrrr!! Tough Trucks! The Dodge Ramcharger and Plymouth Trailduster were full size SUV's that had good looks and brute strength. The Dodge Power Wagon was comparable to them in toughness, but came in pickup truck form only.

Unhappy old age sounds coming from 85 ramcharger

Hello Dodge Members
I have an 85 Ramcharager, it is beganning to make old age creeking and squeeking sounds.. how can i lubricate the chassis or are there any grease fittings on the body.
I would appreciate any concrete information
When i hit a bump or drive over rough areas and the body bounces i hear these sounds..

Thanks in advance for the information..

Take a look at the body mounts, see if they are starting to rust out. Also, the bushings tend to dry out, and deteriorate, so, check them as well. No grease fittings for the body, or spring bushings that I am aware of. Given that it is more than 30 years old, may not hurt to simply replace ALL the bushings.
