Built Right UCA squaking help!!!

I've had the suspension for a while now with no problems. Done moderate off roading. Now, my uca's are squeaking like hell. I have pressure washed them and sprayed the Dupont dry wax on the uni-ball. I also greased the bushings with Mobil 1 synthetic grease. It's a constant squeak and doesn't go away. Any input would help.

It does it when turning, which is the uni-ball. Been spraying with the teflon spray and it doesn't go away. What concerns me more is that it does it when the wheels are straight and going over bumps, that's why i greased the bushings.

Strange the Teflon works for me. I've had the UCAs for over a year now and have 0 problems. Maybe bring it to the shop to see what it might be.

Yeah, talked to the shop last week. They said to loosen the washers for the bushings to get grease in there. Did that and greased thru the zerks. I tried calling today, but I couldn't get anybody and left a message but no reply.

Update:
I kept spraying the Dupont dry wax and slowly but surely, the squeak went away.
