Default Squeak from bushings?

1999 CC, after installing new front spring with bushings and replacing rear bushings the cart has developed a squeak. Lug nuts tight, nothing rubbing that I have found yet. Is there a lube that is compatable with the bushings I could use just to rule them out as the source of the squeak?

If the bushings are rubber,you are out of luck,If they are Urethane,You can get some silicone-grease or similar and lube the sleeves.It also could be the leafs themselves squeaking.Try a shot of white-lithium on the springs,between the leafs and see if the squeak goes away.If so,you can eithe install squeak-pads,spring-liners,or grease the leafs(messy)Also make sure the tips of the leafs are ground on a light angle,if they are rough or cut square,they will squeak.Hope this helps.

It was the leaf spring. The squeak is gone.

Would the antiseize be compatable with rubber?

You can use it,but it won't do much,If anything it will be temporary.
