The squeaking is killing me

Installed the lift and drove for a few hundred miles. Now there is a squeaking coming from the strut/spring assembly. Everything is torqued but when you shake it, it squeaks on both sides. It all seems to be seated properly. Help I'm going insane

Check the swaybar link ends. They were loose when I bought our Commander and it sounded horrible. Torqued them down, no more noise.

Still squeaking on both sides! I've unloaded some silicone spray around the springs and such but still not gone. Anyone else have an issue with this setup or have suggestions? Every bump adds a little more insanity to my drive

When you installed the lift did you happen to remove the upper control arms? If so check to see if the upper control arm bolts are tight this can also cause squeaking it happend to me.

Cool thanks. Probably the only bolts I forgot to recheck.
