Yup looks good. They are still smiling. Unless you want us to talk you into a lift kit. Then we could re-evaluate the situation.

Dirt in the springs. use a high pressure washer and spray the ever loving shit out of them. If that doesnt work, brake fluid ( DO NOT GET IT ON PAINT!) has worked for me in the past. If those dont work, break them lose, clean them out, and re assemble.

If you dont offroad hard or carry heavy loads they got some life left, when they go to negative ARC, come talk to me.... as far as the squeak could be dirt in between leafs, or might be spring bushings either at the shakle end (rear) or the hanger end (front) don't put any type of heavy lubricant/grease or anything like that on your springs, All it does is attract dirt,etc;....

If it is your bushings its probably dirt/or too dry between the shakle pins (where the springs slide on to) & the center sleeve in the bushing...

Here its ok to use a little lithium grease or other non petroleum based heavy lube .. (petro based lubes will rot the rubber bushings over time..
