Default squeaking front suspension

2004 precedent has a bad squeaking front suspension. I've tightened all the bolts and oiled and greased everything. This helped somewhat but is still a problem. Can't really determine where it is coming from. Maybe some of you have had the same problem and have fixed it. If so tell what you did to fix it. Thanks

YES as SCUBABUD says is the cart stock or has it been lifted as its very important to know.
If cart is stock and if squeek is when cart is moving up and down It could be a dry shocks. Lately with the Precedents I have found several ( DRY NO FLUID AND NO SIGNS OF LEAKING ) shocks that when unhooked had no resistance and made terrible noises when in up and down motion? You should be able to bounce suspension up and down while some one checks with hand for location of sound. If in doubt unhook one end of shock and see if that solves your problem.

Old Mec... I've also used one of my favorite sprays... WD40 to quiet my lifted front end. The A-Arms squeak at the rubber bushings they use to attach to the frame. A little WD40 and the noise goes away... for a few days at least... hopefully. But as you mentioned... I seem to spray every frigging thing on my front suspension while I'm at it including the shocks...

The cart is stock. non-lifted. I will check out the shocks by un-hooking them. Let you know the out come.

Not the shocks. It is the front leaf spring. Where it connects in the middle of the frame. Instead of wd-40 I got some "heavy duty silicone" spray. Once it penetrates it stops the squeak. Spray= $2.17.

WD40 evaporates and is dry within a short period of time. Use a spray Lub that doesn't evaporate.
