    probably need to pressure wash your rear springs and may have to pry up on them and spray some good dry moly lube back there on the silencer pads and all between the leafs. dont use stuff like wd40....it attracts dirt/dust.

    So it's not the shocks it's the leaf springs. I cleaned them good I just need to buy some good lube. Where can I get some good lube.

    Mine squeak at all 4 wrap points everytime I wheel or every 2 weeks which ever comes first. The solution is to have CLEAN leaf springs (presure wash the crap out of them). When dry, I spray Liquid Wrench silicon lube on and in the 4 wrap points on the leaf springs. By the time I get to where I am going or come back if I just let it sit the springs dont squeak. Its not the leaves, the shocks, or the U bolts... its the wraps that squeak on my truck (2010 DC 4x4) and all 4 squeaked after the first time I got em muddy/dirty. Lubing any other area does nothing for me. Just the wraps.
