On my dads '06 Coly Crew cab, we notice a creaking noise coming from either the suspension or body. It is when the Truck takes off from a stop or upon braking. And mostly at parking lot speeds. We also never heard it in the summer months, only this winter especialy in the morning at colder temps. I thought I heard awhile back that there was a TSB for this refering to the body mounts but I'm not sure. I just want to give him some good info for the dealer in case they can't "re-create".

my truck does it when its cold, and i only have 11k miles on mine.

it mainly happens when i hit the gas and turn at the same time while at slow speeds.

this truck is still quieter inside than my 99 tacoma was, so it doesnt bother me.

mine does it to I ask the stealer to look at it but they said they didnt hear a thing. But mine has been doing it ever since I had it only does it at low speed like you said in parking lots. I thought it may have been my rear leaf springs. But I looked at those and nothing. Let us know what you find out.

Mine did the same thing. I sprayed the cab mounts with a good shot of silicone. Seems to work on mine. I've done it twice and worked boh times.

Don't be afraid to soak them down good, the silicone has to work its way into the nooks and crannies.

bunch of posts on this. it's the cab bushings. but check the e-brake cable too (under driver side) to make sure it's not rubbing and contributing to the noise.

Thats the first place I went. Sprayed the lesf and the shock bushings. That wasn't it.

You might also want to check the cross member to see if it rubbing the frame. Just got mine back from dealer and they say that was the problem. I noticed a lot of squeaking under truck when coming up to a drive thru window. The echo off the building makes it more noticable

My creaking experience may be resolved

FYI, I took my 07 CC coly in 5 times for the creaking sound coming from the right rear cab area. I think they may have finally fixed the problem. Twice they said they coulndn't duplicate the problem. In their attempts, first they lubricated the cab cushions... didn't help, then they changed all cab cushions per aTSB they had, but that didn't fix the problem either. Finally, after driving me crazy, I took it in last Friday and they torn the entire rear of the truck cab apart. They removed the seats, molding and everything they could think of and finally found that there was a plate that mounted to the cab in the rear that had 3 of the 6 or 7 clips broken (so much for QC). This was allowing the plate to rub and creak when the cab flexed during acceleration and esp. in cold weather.

I also noticed that the noise wasn't as prevelant during the warmer months and would get quieter as the cab warmed up.

Bottom line is that at least for a day and a half, so far so good, I'm creak free!

Under your cab you will see big bolts/bushings (holds your cab to the frame, can see them simply by kneeling down and looking under your cab doors.) Spray those bad boys with a ton of lube - I used WD40 initially cause thats all i had but it may not be the best as someone said WD may be corrosive to rubber farther down the line - silicone spray or lithium may be better. Really soak the bushings. If you have the same creak as the rest of us you should notice the difference IMMEDIATELY.
