Not sure what procedure you used but for the rear end suspension stuff I always wait until everything is back on the ground before I torque it. You can also try spraying the leaf pack and the mounts down with some white lithium grease, sometimes you just need a little lube :D

I have always been told to let the weigth of the truck be on the springs to torque them down, but my truck squeeks like you wouldnt believe and I hate it, but I like the look of my lift more, let us know what you find out, Oh btw white lithium rocks!!!

Go spray some wd -40 on some part u think it is. Then drive it. Kee repeating untill the noise goes away. Thtll narrow it down to wats makeing the noise.

Tandm, go with the zone BL. U won't regret it.

did that kit have a AAL along with a block in the rear? the AAL might be squeaking against the other leafs when compressing if thats what was installed.

Maybe this is why the kits are so cheap, you get what you pay for? I duno I hope its something simple buddy, if its not im definitely going to spend the extra cash to get a fabtech.

Definately the aal. Blocks don't squeak as they don't move or rub on anything. Grease is only a temporary fix because it will eventually dry up and get squeezed out. If retorquing doesn't fix it, try one of those pads that go between the leaves. I don't know where to get one, maybe the autoparts store?

steelchamp, if Dave hasn't replied by lunch time or so, go to there website and do the live chat thing. hes the one that does that.

try the WD-40 thing or lithium greas on the AAL's and see if that atleast muffles the noise a bit. Im betting thats what it is. when you installed yours there was now on the ground. they werent settled when you were driving it down the road for the first time and if some dirt of snow got thrown up between the AAL and the leaf pack then it could be causing a bit of rust to squeak between them now.

when i had my busted strut on my truck i would spray it once a week with wd-40 and it wouldnt squeak near as loud as if it were dry. but when it rained the water would wash all the oil away and itd squeak like hell over bumps.

Well, it sounds to me that he paid someone to do his lift. I just put leafs on my truck with no noise what so ever. Like one said earlier in the post check to see if you have the little spacers between each leaf. They are about 1/32 to 1/16 inches think and about 6" long so you'll know what to look for.
