Question Squeaky Sound! Coilovers? Camber?

The weirdest thing. A squeaky sound comes & goes from my suspension! Especially on uneven roads. I've installed Megan Coils & Megan Rear Camber Arms & SPC front joints. Lowered my car a little bit so there's no gap from my wheels to my fenders & is tucked in. Its starting to be annoying. I rolled up my windows & I hear a loud creaking sound if I'm not playing my stereo. Cabin noise. Just wondering if anyone has this same problem or know the answer to fix this sound. Could it be I need to grease my camber arms? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you want to find out what it is get a can of dry silicon spray and spray one at a time all of the rubber parts on your front arms and joints then drive to see which one makes the sound go away.

Dry Silicon Spray? Is it any good?

Heard of White Lithium Grease? A friend recommended me that also.

its good just not a permanant solution, but it will tell you what is making the noise if you do one thing at a time then you can do a more permanant fix.

How would White Lithium Grease not be a permanent solution, just wondering? In reviews they say that they are great for taking out plastic & metal friction. Doesn't melt, dry or freezes. I've also read up on Dry Silicon Sprays. Reviews say they are great to eliminating rubber squeaks, prevents sticking, doesn't attract dirt & don't leave stains. To me they both sound the same. Only difference is Dry Silicone is not greasy & White Lithium is.

The dry silicon is not permanant, not the lithium.
