Dakar Leafs... Do they all squeak?

I am seriously considering ordering a set of Dakar's for my truck and ditching the AAL so I don't sag so much when I pull my tent trailer with my bike in the bed. I'm on the fence though, because it seems just about everybody has issues with them squeaking!

I don't want a squeaky leaf pack! Has this issue been fixed or is the squeak problem hit or miss?

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

2 weeks and the squeak comes and goes, but the noise overrides the bottoming out and sagging rear AAL. Would do it all over again even knowing about the noise.

Squeaks like this bug the crap out of me! I may have to look into a different leaf pack. Like the all pros or something.

they supposedley fixed the issue they had with them a few yrs. ago. im on a year with mine, they squeeked right off the the get go but after i flexed them hard a few times and they stopped after that. Maybe its the colder temps but i used to be able to just stand on my rear bumper and jump up and down and they squeeked but not now. i get mud on them all the time and dirt im sure inbetween them and still nothing.

Uhg. I am ready to pull the trigger on these (or something else) so I can get them on before my wife (3rd grade math teacher) starts her summer break next Wednesday. Camping/riding season starts for us next week.

What to do, what to do??

mine go:

squeaky squeaky squeaky squak!

However, everynow and again I will spray some penetrating lube on them and jump up and down on the bed for 5 minutes (great exercise with a friend) and then they go:______________
