No Dodge rattle just a lots of creaks

my Dodge ram turbo diesel 2500 creaks or squeaks a lot. sounds like a rusty hinge needing grease. The noises come not from the engine but the 'joints'. Any body else with this?

If it's not mechanical (i.e. U-joints, shocks, etc.) I ignore them.

A 3/4 ton is gonna ride kinda rough, especially with a CTD. What kind of squeaks are we talking about? Interior stuff?

Me too. My 1/2 is full of strange noises. But after 275,000 what can you really expect.

Its probably your leaf spring bushings. My truck creaked like hell and I replaced them and it stopped. Could be other bushings too.

Just throw on a loud muffler (or delete it alltogether) to cover up the little noises =D

The noises are not interior. Really noticable when turns are made or going over a rough spot in the road. sounds dry and creaky
