Rear leaf squeek help!

Just recently, the rear leafs on each side at the front shackle have started to squeek... and it's driving me NUTS! Anyone have an easy lube suggestion or should I just take out bolt, drop leaf and put on Dry lube?
FYI: (stock leaf pack W/Procomp AAL)

Get the weight off the springs , pry the leaf ends & drop some squeak pads in

Thanks 4WD... but the squeak is coming from the shackle mount, not the leafs themselves. Any other suggestions?

I guess you guys have stated the obvious! I appreciate that and was about to do the same... I was thinking a longer-term solution with a dry-lube that wouldn't attract a lot of "Gunk". But that would mean unmounting the leaf pack from the shackle and I was hoping any summer projects were coming to a close!! WD40 might just be the way to go.....

Found out it wasn't the Hanger bolt on the shackle afterall... It was at the first spring clip on the leaf-pack!! Sprayed some dry-lube around the clip and between the leaves right at that point an VOILA, no more squeak!!
Thanks anyway guys!
