Re: remove bolts out of leaf springs
Is the squeek comming from the front or rear or both? Every vehicle will eventually start once the vehicle has some wear n tear on it, the rubber bushings and things get worn, its just the way it is.
Now ill just stick to the rear for now beens that seems to be what your concentrating on. How many miles is on your truck and do you get alot of salt on your vehicle? (i.e near the ocean or snowy/salty road climate)
If so and if you have higher miles you might need to just redo the mounts with new rubber bushings or just new bushings. Im sure if your shocks are worn badly, that prolly isnt helping either.
Now for doing work the best thing would be to lift the rear up n put it up on jackstands (place the jackstands on the rear part of the frame so the rear end can travel throughout its ranger of motion) make sure everything is safe and good to go with the truck and use your jack to jack the rearend itself up to put some weight on the rear leafs and undo the bolts. Then slowly release the tension on the jack to lower the rear back down and for the leafs to swing down.
anymore help or details just let me know, its late and im trying to respond fast before I head off here.
