So i got this squeak...

Real high pitched and only happens when I hit even the slightest bump. At first I thought it was in my dash from when I had a bit of a shaky issue with flat spots on my tires, but apon further inspection I realized it's under the front somewhere, still guessing it's due to my flat spot issue. I've been told I might have shaken a sway bar loose? Any help would be extremely appreciated. It's annoying as hell. Lol

Might try checking your 4x4 shifter linkage. Mine was doing same thing. Spayed some lube up on it and it was gone

Only ONE???? Dang!!!

High pitched could be metal to metal or rubber to metal.

If FWTJ's fix doesn't help, hit all the rubber bushings with some PB Blaster to see if it helps. Then start looking for something loose.

There's a TSB repair kit for that, it is less than $30 from the dealer. I also sprayed mine with WD40 and other lubes but it kept coming back.
