Default Spring leafs starting to make noises

So my leaf spring are starting to make noises like a 20 year old truck. Wait, its a 20 year old truck. Lol.

Anyway. I put WD40 all the way I could and noise went away. For 2 weeks. Suspension shop tells me they need to undo everything to proper grease everything.

your thoughts in thai one?

Jaguar actually had a really gorgeous setup for this. Leather wraps, with hooks for lacing them with a leather cord. Early XK series cars had them, and you could get the leather in black, brown, or raw leather and have it it dyed by the dealership to match the paint. They also had a grease fitting on them to pump them full of grease.

Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, they also kept the squeaking at bay.

here is a whole thread on them where I liberated the info above
