Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

I tried the grease but it didn't work. I guess I'll have to have a mechanic listen and look at it.

Re: 2014 first 100 miles - impressions so far

I have the factory cargo and winter mats and I love them. They fit perfect, look and work great. I bought the weather tech mats for my wife's ford expedition and they're no where as nice as the OEM's.

Re: do i have an engine problem?

Same with my 2012 v8. I think it's normal. If you stomp on the accelerator it'll kick down to lower gear and you'll get better acceleration.

Re: self leveling shocks

I'm on my 2nd overland (17K & 24K miles) with QL and air suspension without any problems. I believe you get a nicer ride with the air suspension. I hope they last as long as regular shocks.

Re: 87 vs 89 octane for hemi v8 5.7

Manual says vehicle with 5.7 hemi will meet all emission and performance requirements with 87 or 89 then states manufacturer recommends 89. I use 89 but don't know if it makes a difference.
