loud ass squeeking from leaf springs

I have some loud ass squeaking comming from my leafs. Anytime I accelerate, brake, turn or go over a bump hell anytime It flexes at all. WD 40 worked for a week but now it still sqeaks and makes my ride sound like a damn hooptie. Any suggestions, any one with any similar issues

Powerwasher, and get level with the leaf springs and spray between them. They're squeaking because there is dirt between them.

im not sure whats in the DIY section for it, but i remember oz's fix for it a few months ago and i came up with another idea. if you can get ahold of it, see if you can pry the leafs and then slide a piece of firehose in it. not like a whole round part of it, but like a patch. think about it, it can handle like 100's of pounds of psi so its knitted super tight, is bound to last forever, and it's thin. all makes sense to me. i just don't have squeaky leafs to try in on. . . but yeah, came up with that idea at 3 in the morning on a fire call a few weeks ago. could be a total fail, but that's my contribution.

My fix for my Dakars with EPDM rubber strips was a variation of the DIY squeaky leaf thread , the firehose idea is an interesting one too

About 4 months now .

I have had to adjust the strips once , but the silence I get versus the squeaks I had before are worth it .
