    Just curious if any of you have noticed a squeaky rear seat. The long seat with armrest is squeaking some on my 2018 with less than 3k miles. I’m hoping that this is due to cold weather. I noticed it when messing around installing floormats and seatcovers yesterday.

    Funny, I had a similar issue with my truck around the same mileage. I removed the bolts, re-seated them and torqued them back down. Sound must have gone away because I honestly forgot about it until now. I just recently removed the rear seat to install the new sub and no squeaking noticed.
    Might be worth a try...

    I had a squeak in the rear seat area . Turned out to be the seatbelts needed to be looped in the hook. I can't stand rattles. When I have a passenger I have to hook it back up or my ears go crazy .

    My rear seat is usually up and it hasn't started squeaking yet .

    Where is your squeak coming from? Maybe some white lithium grease on the spring mech?

    Sounds like it’s near the floor and around spring mechanism. I can hear it both when I sit on the seat as well as when I lift and lower the seat. It’s aggravating when things squeak on a new truck.

    I have this issue, mine seems to be the passenger side seat back rubbing against the trim panel behind it.

    I have the same problem but can’t find exactly where it’s coming from. Figured because I use mine off-road heavy it was time for new shocks due to the rough ride but it drives me nuts.

    Anyone got a good suggestion on shocks?
