    I've got a '96 with squeeky leaf springs. It was suggested that I remove and sand each spring to remove any rust and dirt . Then apply two coats of "Slip Plate" graphite paint. Anyone with experience with this product or any other simular graphite paint? I'm looking for a solution and not a temporary fix. I may be too late on this but what is this "TSB" pertaining to leaf spring replacement? Any and all suggestions are needed. Thanks.

    getting there....
    x2....................definitely pressure wash the springs out, and dont use wd-40.....it collects dirt and suck. a good dry moly lube will stay on/between the springs,and will repel dust.
