ask him where the talking llama went
Got my truck back earlier. Was the squeak problem in the frame? Nope. Shocks? Nope. Anywhere in the suspension? Nope.
It was the damned hood hinges.
Yeah, I was surprised too. A few applications of lubricant on the hinges and the squeak is gone - for now (if there's one thing I know about vehicle squeaks, it's that they always come back sooner or later).
The brakes are also fine, so no worries there.
Cost: $0.00. Everything was covered under GM warranty. Me and my '05 GMC Canyon are happy once again.
