New leaf spring options

So I recently put on the icon progressive 3 leaf AAL with 1.5" of lift on my stock leafs which had about 100K miles on them. Im also running bilsteins all around with eibach springs and shocks set at 0. So about 1.6" of lift in the front.

Anyways when I installed the lift at first I liked it, nice and quiet and leveled out my truck though a little too stiff more my likings, but thought it would loosen up. In the past month they have started squeaking like no other, it drives me insane!! Ive tried everything I've read on here to fix the squeak and still nothing (repositioning the AAL, bike chain lube, innertube trick). Now I'm just leaning towards new leafs, but I want to keep the 1.5" of lift and something not too stiff.

Any suggestions? More ideas to fix the squeak?

You'll figure it out eventually. If not dakars with the third leaf removed would be a good option
