    Installed the body lift and had some squeaking coming from the rear of the passenger cab. I Just re-torqued all body lift bolts to 65lbs. Still have the squeak. Any ideas to eliminate it would be appreciated lol.

    With out air tools....the front half took a whole day and the rear 3/4’s of a day. Again, hand tools only and I installed headlights and fogs as well.
    The prices to have it installed was expensive and I was not paying that lol. Since then I have purchased the right equipment lol.

    Well it’s definitely the rear cab passenger side body mount. Took the bolt out, hit the body mount with some lube and re-torqued the bolt back down (loctite as well). Hopefully this solves it.

    Still squeaking. Do the bushings in these truck normally wear out (I have a 2014) this quick?

    Bed bolts are 80ft/lb, are you sure that’s the culprit?

    Do you have a leveling kit as well where the noise could be un related but just happend to start after the install?

    Another thing you could check (atleast after I installed mine) was where I cut the rear bumper to fit around the hitch I didn't cut far in enough so it would rub just a little causing a squeak (metal on metal) I had to pull my rear bumper off again and trim just a little. You can check by under the licences plate mount where the step is. Just move it in and back.
    Also make sure the rear tire spare is secure

    Mine also came with bed spacers that installed on the frame just for extra support I'm assuming with a load in the bed? Are these secure?
