    Default Squeaking problems

    I have an 08 silverado 4wd reg cab. i had a rough country front end leveling kit installed in july. ever since then there has been a squeaking and creaking noise coming from the front when turning and normal driving. also recently when i go in reverse there is a loud squeaking noise that is just embarrassing. does this have to do with the leveling kit? should i remove it? or does something need to be greased to stop this? please help

    Check your u-joints for the noise in the rear. I am not familiar with that kit, but I would go ahead and grease all the zerks in the front (ball joints, tie rods, idler, pitman) Then I would spray some lube on the control arm bushings and see if that helps.
