Energy suspension bushings

The cab on my 95 is sagging and I got some ES bushings and I hear on the forums that some people have sqweeking issues with poly bushings. What can I do to prevent the sqweeks? Any type of grease or something? Sqweeking is something that just bugs the crap out of me.

Yep, grease them before you install. Bearing grease works fine but is messy. Personally, I like to use silicon grease, as it is thicker and doesn't tend to turn black and crusty like bearing grease. I did the entire front end of my Bronco this summer and no issues at all.

I got the bushings in and the cab sit's more level now (driver to passanger side) but the rear of the cab doesn't line up with the bed. It sits a little higher above the body line crease. I can't drive the truck either since I don't have brake lines on it since I did the Dana 60. Is there a settling in period on the ES bushings or am I gonna have to shim the body?
