Hey man what are you doing this afternoon? I think that we probably need to take a quick look-see at your beast? I will be out of the office for most of the afternoon but give me a call on my cell- I will send you that # in a pm. Perhaps we can meet at Black and Read do you know where that is?

Mine produces annoying squeeks but as soon as the brake pedal is pressed, it stopped. Pull out all the front disks and pads and could not see anything obvious. Noticed though that the pads on mine 96 does not have an anti-rattle clip. That may be it?

It's probably the frontend, not breaks. Yes, those noises are faily common, mine makes some creaking noise when I turn and am going slow/practically stopped. Radius arm bushing, or the TTB center bushings, most likely.

All kinds of front end noises! some pop, some groan,and some times creek, i gave up I replaced all front end bushings, all u-joints including front axle joints and it still happens, i just turn up radio and hope nothing will fall off! Sometimes you can feel it in your seat. I decided to drive it till it breaks then fix it and do it again....-Bob [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

if you're lifted, it's probably the lift brackets moving around... if not, loose TTB xmember rivets are the probable cause

Well if you got poly bushings. Then thats most likely your culprit. If not greased a little bit when installed they will squeak nicely.
