Jameson had the same problem with his fabtech, I dont know if he got it resolved or not but you might want to PM him or maybe he'll chime in here.

Have you checked your shocks? My truck creeks because i have the wrong size bolt in my front shock. It requires a metric and i have a standard in there (or vice versa i forget) so the bushing is loose around the bolt and makes noises

My lift has been on for over 6 years and I've never gone back to re-tighten anything... Absolutely silent... If the lift is creaking, you had better figure it out soon, that would make me nervous! If it's creaking, it's moving on you and will eventually come apart.

The leaf packs start to creak after a while. The nylon spacers between the leafs wear out. I usually spray some heavy duty silicone and it stops it for a few days, or until i go through a lot of water.

im guessing it creaks when u turn?? only way to stop it is to get a steering box brace a few race companys make it> i dont know much about it but i do know its the only way to shut it up lol
