    I was always able to fix it by spraying all the moving parts with a ton of WD40 or something similar. One of my friends told me once that lithium grease is better and longer lasting, but I just never tried it. There is also a grease zerk in part of the clutch assembly under the truck. Its on a horizontal tube like piece. I didn't find it until last week. It was all covered with mud and stuff so I didn't even know it was there.

    When is it squeeking?
    When you push it in? Let it out? While driving?
    How old is it? ThrowOut bearring? Spring/linkage?
    Mine stoped when I put in a new CenterForceII Cluch kit w/throwOut berring.

    OK so are we talkin about a drivetrain squeek or a pedeal in cab squeek? If the squeek is out side I would bet the throwout is the cause, even new poor greasing/dry out????
    In side, I would lube all piviot points and return springs.WD40 is a temporary lube, it will evaporate eventually so use something else.
    Good luck
