Body Mount Squeak HELP!

The squeak, squeak, squeak is driving me crazy. Didn't have this problem until my rubi rails were removed and now the drivers side body mount bolts squeak like crazy. I can pull the bolts, lube and re-torque and it goes away for a few miles but it always comes back. Any ideas or writeups on how to fix this?

Your body mounts and Rubi rails don't have a lot in common. How banged up is your gas tank skid? I chased a squeak forever, ended up being the tank rubbing under the tub on the passenger side.

It is definately the body mounts. I can stand on the slider and shift my weight and hear them squeak

May have dirt in between them. It's easy enough to remove the 6? body mount bolts on each side to remove/clean/inspect them. Take a hi-lift to it.
