    i have squeeks alllllll over !!!!!!

    When i got my blazer it had a small oil leak that has been taken care of but from the leak there was lots of build up from the oil and dirt. so i had this great idea to power wash all the shit out and see what i had to work with. after completing my great idea i was left with a front end filled with all kinds of squeks. does anyone know if the power washing was thte cause of the squeeks?

    does it squeek a lot in the front when you go over bumps because if it does than you may need new ball joints

    All depends on where they're comming from. When was the last time you greased your bushings? What about all your fittings?

    I know this will be a mission on lowered trucks, but have a buddy simulate bumps by pushing your truck up and down and with a long screwdriver put it on the parts you think squeek and put the other end to your ear and it amplifies sound so when the sound gets loudest you know thats the spot. Be careful I was doing that screwdriver thing under the hood one day and I was checking for pulley noise and the screwdriver hit the fan belt and almost took my ear off!
