My leaf springs just started squeaking???

I have noticed just in the past week or so that my leaf pack is making a squeaking sound... I can only hear it at slow speeds, mostly when I open up my door to look behind me to back into a spot.

Just curious... They haven't been doing this, even after adding the AAL it didn't squeak? Any reasons why this would start all of the sudden?

I was wondering if maybe it could be from when I got under there and re-tightened the u-bolts? I didn't torque them so when I was doing my brakes a few weeks ago I went ahead and cranked the u-bolts down to make sure nothing had come loose since installing the AAL. Could over torqueing the u-bolts be the cause?

If not how do I make it stop??? I tried wd-40 but, that didn't work.

Thanks in advance,

About the only permanent way to fix squeeky springs is to place teflon pads between each spring. You also need to rinse between the springs with water after every off-road trip and about once a month. This will usually stop all the spring squeeks.

It's a PITA to separate the spring pack, attach the pads between each spring, and reassemble the pack.

I did it to my wifes Jeep more to keep her quiet than the springs.
