Shocks? Leaf Springs? Shackles??

Check your shocks for wet spots indicating leakage. Check each leaf spring for cracks in any of the leafs. The rear shackles are a known weak spot on early model Titans, so check the bushing area as well as all the parts of the shackle that are welded.

Try spraying some WD-40 on your shackles, I tracked my squeek down to the rear passenger side. Every so often it comes back and I have to hit it again.

I had a squeak come up a few weeks ago and I tracked it down to the rear driver shock was the culprit.

If the squeak occurs when acelerating,braking and cornering,could be the body mounts. I am currently having issues with noisy body mounts.

White Lithium Grease on all the bushings.

One question: Do you have an aftermarket exhaust? I had squeaking from the rubber hanger near the exhaust tip due to the exhaust slipping rearward (loose exhuast clamps). When I repositioned my exhuast the squeak went away.
