mine was squeaky too, after a beach trip and some wheeling. took it to the car wash and sprayed my shackles, in between my leaves, and this seemed to fix the sqeak.

Take the truck to the DIY car wash and use the high-pressure spray to spray out your shackles, bushings, leaf springs, and other joints. Hose them down with WD40. Make sure you don't get it on your brakes.
Repeat after each wet or muddy trip.

if you have access to it, try to use a heated pressure washer, they work miracles, and help with grease too...
but instead of using wd40, ide use prolong, wd has a solvant base, which allows rust to reaccure, prolong uses an oil base, wich wont allow rust as ong as you keep it well lubed

Screw oils.

Use some grease. Do it once, do it right, and forget about it.

just blow it off, find out where the squeaks are coming from, and like Norcal said, grease it up

could it be the shocks? I will try to sray down everything again
Definately. Could also be your leaf spring bushings. Those have a tendency to rust on there. When you go to take off your leafs to lift or replace, you are fubared.

Just start greasing anything that has rubber/metal, metal/metal and plastic to metal contact that moves.
