    Gentlemen,
    We have a 2000 F-350 diesel that has now developed squeaks. It will squeak when the truck is not running and standing still just by pushing down on the truck. I do not think the shocks are shot. I believe that the rubber bushings that hold the stabilizer or some other component may be the culprit. Any suggestions? And if you do, what could I spray in there to quiet it down? I do not want the sprayed in substance to dissolve the rubber.
    In advance, thanks for the suggestions.

    White lithium grease would work (spelling?). You can get it in a spray can. If not pb blast should be fine. I know when installing poly bushings you should always put lithium grease on them or they'll squeak.

    I had a squeak from my leaf springs once and spilled a little motor oil on them and it stopped. The lithium grease would probably be a better choice though on the bushings.

    I had a '96 3/4 ton GMC that was squeeking. I had to put marvel oil on the shocks to make it go away.. it did a lot of driving in the mud and water so it was every few weeks i had to do that..
