I just installed the Leveling kit keys that replace the torso keys on
a 2000 f-150. Raised the front end about 2.5 inches. Looks amazing and made
the truck look real mean.
The issue is now the truck's front end squeaks. It doesn't squeak to bad but when you hit bumps you can hear it. Also the ride is much more bouncy, but thats what happens when you mess with the stock height.
So any ideal on how to fix the squeaking? It sounds like it is only coming from
the front left tire. I sprayed wd40 on all the parts and grooves and rechecked the new keys and the installment looks very nice.
Here is the truck information just to let you all know
2000 F-150 Lariat 4x4 extended cab.
Buckshot tires, brush guard
WD40 isn't a permanent lube. White lithium grease would do much better in metal to metal contact. Is it metal on metal or a bushing kind of squeak? Because the control arm bushings and ball joints are upto 11 years old and warn in on one location, it's probably normal for there to be noises. You might try greasing the ball joints and spraying a silicone grease into the bushings to see if it helps. Odd are though, the only cure is new bushings.
