Your squeaking could be sway bar bushings, unless you've removed it

My focus is prolly due for bushings. It squeaks like a mofo right now, but im gonna wait till spring after all the mud is done before I clean it up and inspect them.

I haven't yet. I might take it out when I crank my tbars. How's the body roll? Too much for daily driving?
