You grease the stud itself, and be liberal with it. It'll trickle down.The 1st time I greased it from the inside I used silicone spray but next time I do it Im going to throw in some synthetic motor oil so the lubrication will last longer.

then there must be more than one kind of chirping noise. I had my chirp for years and one day I had enough and I sprayed some WD40 on the cab mount bolt/stud under the drivers side of the truck and the chirp went away for like a year.

You should visit the pull a part and search for some. That's what I'm going to do before I get new tires so that I can get rid of the 14's. They are terrible. Pull a part website lists $8 for a rim.

that the doors keep freezing shut. nothing some WD40 on the weatherstripping can't fix but it dosin't last and they freeze again whenever i don't have time to play with it. someday i'll spread some vasaline on 'em and hopefully never have to do it again.

I hate that I have been pouring money into my ranger since the day I bought it and I'm still not done. Still need to have some tranny work done as it's not shifting into OD correctly and I need a new muffler and discovered recently that I desperately need new rear brakes because my right rear is already metal to metal. All in all I'm still looking at another $1500 for a truck I only paid $800 for.

check the trans fluid level (with the truck warm and running) and see if it's low. also you can get a $25-30 muffler from summit,
