annoying squeaking

The things that go around my rear leaf springs to hold them together are squeaking and I don't know how to make them stop. I squirted some lube on them but that didn't work as the lube cant get in there in between the rubber and the metal. They are riveted on so you cant move them. Has anyone else had this issue? Also when I go over bumps something in the front end makes a jingling noise almost like a dangling chain. Pretty much all the steering components are new and it did it before and still does. I drove my Bro in laws 05 F350 and it made the same noise so I cant figure that one out either.

Mine is doing the exact same thing and I can't figure it out for the life of me it's coming gro
The right side I've put lube on everything and made no difference. The front is also coming from the left side and all new ball joints and u joints still does it. I'm clueless

I thought that my end link pins were squeaking forever. I sprayed every lubricant I had on them to no avail. It turns out that my exhaust was rubbing on something when I went over bumps. When I did my delete and moved my exhaust I heard the squeak. I tightened everything up after the delete and no more squeak. May not be your issue but worth a good shake down.

I went and shook my exhaust around and didn't hear anything.

My rear squeak sounds like it coming from where the front of the box mounts to the Fran right behind my passenger seat. I've given up though and of coarse it only bothers me no one else in the truck seems to mind

the really annoying one is the jingling in the front mainly because I cant figure out what it is. I've come to peace with the rear noise because I have identified it but cant solve it.

I found the jingle. It was the castle nut on the tie rod on the drivers side.
