    Squeaky springs...help!

    The rear springs on my truck have started squeaking.
    I've tried WD40, works for a day or so.
    Is there a dedicated product for this problem?
    I've had a good look under there and there isn't any rust as such, just the usual road grime. I gave both sides a good brush out as far between the leaves as I could get.
    Don't really want to dismantle anything if I can help it.
    Anybody had this problem and cured it?

    Thanks fellas, I'm gonna give the chain lube a go first, I think Bel Ray do a fairly dry one, see how we go. If no joy will try the graphite. I've found a graphite spray lube on the web. Should work ok?
