    Got the dreaded leaf spring squeak problem. Hit them with some WD-40 but still a bit noise left.
    Would the teflon strip help? What else?

    Me too. I find pressure washing them helps the most as a temporary fix but as soon as they get dirty their back at it. Fluid film is a slight band aid too.

    After driving on a dusty gravel road , mine started squeaking like crazy and drove me nuts .
    I jacked it up and let the rear springs separate , I sprayed fluid film in all the gaps in the springs . The squeaking stopped and has been gone for at least a year now and is silent . I have driven on many of dusty gravel roads since .

    Edit , I forgot to mention that I learned this tip here on TW . Sorry for not having said so right away .

    I need to try that method. I think I’m not getting full coverage from the fluid film when I’m doing it.
