    Soooooo. After about a week or so after my lift installation, I noticed a very little squeak when I turn the wheel. It only happens when Im either at a stand still or going at really low speeds like backing into a parking spot which is how I discovered it. Also only present on the drivers side. It wasnt present till a week after my lift install. Im thinking possibly a bolt or nut rattled loose after putting on some miles so I plan on going under and re-torquing bolts to spec. One thing I may have done was just zapping back my axle nut and not torquing with a torque wrench. I remember zapping it and thinkin, "hey the hole lines up with the castle nut so this must be it".. So ill probably check that first.

    With that said, can anyone confirm if 245 ft/lbs of torque is the correct torque for the axle nut?

    Also, if anyone has had this experience please tell me how you fixed the issue or pointers on what I should double check.

    Thanks! Heres the video.

    I have the exact same creaking sound after my lift was installed. We’re you ever able to sort this out?

    My sound didn’t sound quite like yours but it’s so easy it’s worth a shot. I greased the sway bar end links and my noise stopped
