The squeak can come from several places. Most of the time it is the bushings in the shock loop. Other times it is the rubber isolator at the top of the shock. Giving the bushings a quick spray of wd-40 will help. If it continues when you compress the springs then you need to lube the isolator on top of the spring. Remember as the spring compresses it also rotates. The upper isolator should have had some grease applied before install. If it didn't then it can squeak. Its a lot of work to take everything apart, so you may try using the straw to get a good amount of lube up top then drive over some bumps to get it moved around.

Remember anything rubber or poly that moves CAN squeak (doesn't mean it will). Rubber tends to squeak less, but poly last longer. Its a toss up.
