My Tacoma does the same thing. 2017 model sounds like an 1800s covered wagon. I live down 1.5 miles of dirt road so don't want to oil it cuz it'd be a dirt cake in one trip. Sadly I just have to tolerate the squeaking chassis.

My 1994 Ford Ranger did not squeak after 20 years of this dirt road. Apparently toyota has limited understanding of the brand new concept of leaf springs and rubber chassis bushings.

Mine's embarrassing when I'm in the parking lot at work. Groans just getting in it, pulling out of a parking spot, turning to where the truck barely leans, or hitting the brakes. People's heads will whip around from it. :D

This stuff I use has graffite in it it lasts up to 4 months then it needs to be done again..That's why I am thinking 🤔 of doing the oil spray every year the truck has no body rust as of yet

Most of the Tacoma guys say that they don't have a squeak problem after fluid filming the chassis.

If you guys would quite fixing all those engine and transmission leaks the under carriage would lube its self. Just got to make sure the transmission fluid doesn't remove what it isn't supposed to. Those poly bushing are supposed to squeak.

A couple years ago, well 30 or so I was doing a job down a dirt road that was littered with potholes side to side and end to end.
Once a day this old guy made a trip into town and back home in his 63 Impala.
Went by at just an idle, could not even hear the engine running.

But the chassis squeaks, you could hear him coming down the road two miles away.

I had to laugh every time he went by.

I had a Plymouth Neon that squeaked and squawked, and if I could hear it over the radio, I just turned up the volume. Your radio just needs to be played louder.
