Ome 3 inch mediums all around rear is squeeking

My ome has around 2-3k on it and the rear is squeeking but only does it when i get in the back and bounce it up and down? Normal or is this a problem anyone else have this issue if you could go out to youre rigs and see maybe that would be great.

Re: Ome 3 inch mediums all around rear is squeeking

Mine don't squeak, so no not normal. your best bet is to have someone else bounce on the back and track down the exact location of the noise.
Sqeaking from this could be a couple things, the spring rubbing (or the bump stop inside the spring rubbing, possibly the shock, the control arm bushings.

It could be the trailing arm mounts, I overtightened mine and they were squeaking.

Ive done the installation and i don't remember bolting or unbolting this in the rear. Is this also referred to as the rear sway bar link????

Yeah, just different names for the same thing, the two bars that connect at the axle and the frame.

Re: Ome 3 inch mediums all around rear is squeeking

well it seems like its coming from the shocks themselves but im not sure considering in only have to put a little pressure up and down on the roof rack to hear it but its definatly coming from the rear. I guess i have to go back to the dealer to have them look at it. Does this sound major or minor?

Hmm, this maybe a stupid question, what shocks are you running with the OME springs?
