    Alright, I got a 2004 Big Tex 18' pipe top trailer. What can i do about the annoying leaf springs that squeek. I've sprayed different kinds of lithium spray on the bolts and leaves and it doesn't help. Not really a mechanical problem just agravates me. Any ideas?

    Jack it up and spray while the leaves are somewhat separated?

    I had a similar problem, sprayed them good with liquid wrench, solved the problem for a while.
