With all due respect and appreciation for the information, Aram's explanation is good information but to have any faith in it I need to know one thing: Is Keystone using the same bushing on the 2007 Montanas as were used on the 2003's? If so, then I cannot put much faith in the statements. The reason is we had a failure of those bushings at roughly 30,000 miles. Others here have had failures, too, some with fewer miles than we had, some with more.
I posted a letter from MorRyde to Keystone. Aram sent it to me and I asked if I could post it. Unless I am missing something, I have not seen any explanation from Aram.

What i would like to now is this related to the squeeking noise you here when your are pulling into a c.g.? It sounds like it is coming fron the springs. Anybody else here this are is it just me. If so what is the remidy?
Darrell & Pam, I have just started noticing the same noise. Not what what it is. Sure hope it is not a shackle wearing through...

Think I'll try backing them off to inspect them, but I am leery of this as there is no torque recommendations for this. I have a very good dry silicone spray that I think I will hit this area with - if I loosen the nuts.

Gosh, guess I should get Dick out and check ours. We had the axle upgrade done a couple of years ago and got new shackles then, but still it seems you're all saying that it doesn't matter since all of them are non wet bolt.
