    Hey guys I've recently got a squeak that has started with my drop shackles with poly bushings and can't seem to get rid of it. I've greased the holy hell out of them and tried to leave them a little loose and have also made them pretty tight either way the squeak will not go away. Any help would be great

    Welcome to the world of polyurethane. They are inherently noisy.

    Bullitt I forgot to post I did fix the squeak on my shackles back in November. I took them completely apart and greased the inside where the poly meets the steel

    Yeah, but unfortunately it'll come back. I did mine and a few months later, they started squeaking again. And then I put poly bushings in the leaf springs themselves..... And then I put them in the front control arms. I fully expect my truck to squeak like a 70's Chevy within a year.......lol
