Truck noises from age

Well, I turned 90k the other day, and I have been noticing more lately that my truck just doesnt drive as "tight" for lack of a better word. It squeaks and makes random noises here and there, and just doesnt feel new anymore. Being almost 3 years old now, I can understand.

My question is, what all needs to be checked, lubed, tightened, replaced and so on to make a truck feel new again? I dont mean back to factory perfect, but back to what it felt like at 20 or 30k you know? Thanks!

SG

Thats why there are girlfriends. For when the main ride gets worn out and loose.

You can try shocks. And if you really want to get into it maybe all of the bushings. Grease the door hinges and latches. An air freshener.

This is the 3rd time I've seen you post this, are you trying to sell your invention?
