ive got a bad squeek i can hear ridin in the cab over the swampers and pipes, its kinda sounds like its the mirrors cause when i grab one it stops alot of it, but i acutally think its just echoing off of them
its like a squeeky/poppy sound after i hit 25 mph
i know it aint a ujoint, and i jus greased up my tie-rods so that aint it either


im afraid to let the local shop look at it, cause theyll try and replace the front and rear end sayin it wont last another day...so i need some help

Well does it match tire speed? Driveshaft speed? Those would help alot.

i think it might be my lower left balljoint, that seems where the sound is comin from, hopefully not wheelbearings though
i know how to check the balljoints, but what about wheelbearings?

I think you just jack the truck up, place your hands at 12 and 6 on the wheel and rock it to see how worn and or loose the bearings area and listen for that squeek...
