Squeeky springs

I having a hell of a time getting my front coil-over springs to stop squeeking on my Sportsman. I've jacked it up, cleaned between the coils, then sprayed lubricants between the top few coils(mobil-1, silicone, WD-40)I've tried several. After a day or two, it starts squeeking again.

It's very embarassing to ride around or even climb on and hear this annoying sound. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?

Re: Squeeky springs

your signature says it all, spray lubricants evaporate, you need to take it apart (once again) and clean them up really clean then use a molly grease , grease wont evaporate

Re: Squeeky springs

Thanks for your responses. I assume you mean the rubber bushings atop the strut mounts when you say pivots. I'll give it a try.

I have had luck spraying chain lube on the rubber bushings on mine that are on top of the strut. The chain lube lubes the rubber o rings on the chain so i tried it there and it works good, make sure you get ALL around the rubber.
