Default noisey suspension

i have an 04 precedent that is used mostly for hunting, i love this thing, but the front suspension is very noisey. it squeaks with every little bump. is there anything i can do to quiet it down? WD-40 and other lubes seem to work for about 10 mins then its back to the racket. it has a 4'' jakes lift on it. thanks in advance for any help

Usually the squeak comes from between the two front leaf springs, (at least from what I've seen!)

I've used spray White lithium grease, on my cart and two others,
spray on generously between the leafs, and wipe off the excess... the squeaks never came back!

My 2 cents. WD-40 is not a lubricant.

W= Water
D= Displacement
40= the one experiment that finally worked!

It's actually true!

NASA developed WD-40 for the seals on rockets!

According to the WD40 official site about Myths, it is a lubricant.

That's cool! (o.k., so it wasn't "NASA"!)
all I know is... I, personally won't use WD-40 on anything!
except a water drenched distributor cap! (that was, however, "back in the day"!)


But... that's just me!

NOW.....You have just dated yourself!! However...in the interest of "Full Disclosure"..I will say that I probably still know how to put in and properly set a set of points on a 283 Cheby and a 289 Ford....and what I once had....the beastly 383 'Cuda.

OTOH, today all I can tell you about WD-40 is (and I am not a gunsmith) but the gunsmith's I know tell me WD-40 is "their best friend."
