2013 Squeaky Leafs are driving me crazy

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed a problem.
But my rear leafs squeaky every little bump i hit (from the little markers on highway to speed bumps). its an irritating squeak that is driving me crazy. i ordered the truck and have had it since OCT so i know no one else has done anything to it. just wondering if anyone else has come across this?

Pressure washing the rear leaf springs got rid of it for a while but it comes back.

My '06 did this after only having it for a short time... I can't believe Toyota hasn't fixed this yet!

It is very disappointing if the new Tacomas are still doing this...

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

My leafs where squeaking at the bushings. I tried WD40 it only lasted about a week and the squeak returned. I soaked them down real good with a silicone spray and its been quite for about 5 months now.

Glad I'm not the only one, man it gets on my nerves. I plan on pressure washing the leafs, take the rear tires off and use simple green first, then pressure wash, then the White Lithium Grease

They have. Here

They still use the old crap and replace them with this when needed. I installed these in mine a few months back. No more squeak.
