Now with that being said, and not having the noise happen last night after the truck was sitting in the driveway since after work, I think it's safe to say that the noise happens when the truck is hot? Maybe the heat from the day is making the rubber softer on whatever part is actually making the noise? I need to get someone else out there with me to help so I can crawl under there and listen really good..
That is exactly what I noticed.. This noise usually starts when you've driven for a while. I will try changing the front bushings within a month and report back. I wonder which sway bar bushings would be best for a comfier ride since I don't offroad or raise this 2006 Laredo 4.7 4wd. Also, not sure if stock mopar ones are made out of rubber and moog and raybestos made out of polytherane. I heard somewhere that the rubber ones are comfier? Can anyone confirm? What else would change in that front area to have a more comfier ride so I can do it while I'm there? Thanks

How many suspension bushings are there?

Re: "Squeaky" Sound coming from front suspension

What is that red grease?

Can anyone confirm their noise went away after changing the sway bar bushings?

Was that clunk making a kind of squeaky noise as if coming from inside the passenger side dashboard by any chance?

Thx

It sounded as if running over a dog toy and than dropping off curb it was mainly a clunk though.

Re: "Squeaky" Sound coming from front suspension

Right, I don't have that noise, I am sure mine has something loose inside the dashboard, if anyone has experienced this please share..
