Severe Spring Noise

Ok at first i was just gonna ignore it but after a few months i cant take it anymore.

Quick question: I have Megan Lowering Springs on my 5th Gen SH (1.9 drop) and my two front spring squeak a lot. Its about half and half on a hot dry day. but when it rains or is humid it gets really loud and anoying.

Can anyone please tell me how to fix the prob. Do i need to spray some lube on them or sum. like some WD40 or something.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Severe Spring Noise

they could possibly be seated wrong. or your struts could be blown like mine.
my springs make noise to and i know for a fact my struts are blown which is most likely causing my issue. could be the same for you to.

Re: Severe Spring Noise

Lowering springs + stock struts = blown struts. Also check the rubber jounce bumpers on em, could be worn out.
