I have a 2005 Sierra with an 8" rock crusher lift on 35's .. I dont know if I hit a bad pot hole or what but I have a bad creaking sound coming from my right rear suspension while driving. When I try to recreate the noise when in park, the suspension bounces right back with the noise only happening on the first bounce.

Was wondering if anyone knows what this might be? Cracked leaf spring? I do not think its a problem with the lift suspension...

Thanks.

did you lose one of the leaf spring pads? They're low friction disks that separate the tips of the springs. Without them, the edges of the spring bites into the leaf above it and often results in creaking/squeaking sounds.

exactly what i was thinking. i went thru this as well. :shake:

maybe a shock since it only happens on first cycle. take the bottom shock bolt out and drive around the block

EDIT i want more info on said rock crusher lift

mine creaks and squeaks like and SOB and all the friction disks are there so my next step is to separate the leafs and hit em with some white lithium grease to quiet em down a bit. Mine has gotten horrible it sounds like Im driving around in a rusted out model A or something.

Yeah all the leaf spring pads are in place. Don't know if its just excess rust or what, the winter did a number on the leaf springs. Im going to disconnect one of the lift shocks next to make sure its the leaf spring.
