A about a month ago I installed step rails in my 2012 silverado. They are AMS and attach to the Body Mount Bolts in three places on each side. After a week or two they started to sqeak. Only when the body of the truck gets twisted or I step on or off of them. Has anybody else ran into this issue?
Yes have come across a couple times.
The fix is to tighten again. Most likely had an odd angle when installed and now are a fraction loose. A quarter turn can make a vast difference.
Had it happen to the point we cut an inner tube and placed bolt through.
The United States of America has the greatest people on earth.
Can you leave the step rail in one piece when you loosen the bolt and retighten? If I would add neoprene or rubber how do I know I still have enough threads to keep body, frame and step rails together?
