Squeaky Front Springs

I spray WD on the mounts or silicone when the squeak gets annoying,what is the fix for this problem? The noise goes away for a little time but returns shortly.

Re: Squeaky Front Springs

The plastic spacers for the springs are either worn out or gone. If you replace them, it will take care of your squeek. I gave up replacing them after the replacement lasted about 10,000 miles.
