Default Greasing the suspension

In the last month my suspension has been squeaking on every bump and turn. I was wondering if I could get under the truck and grease certain spots on it to stop the noise. If so what should I grease?

Should I go get liquid grease from the hardware store and spray it down?

Whats probably squeaking are the rubber bushings underneath the front end. You can grease the bushings on the endsbut to do it right you have to remove the nut and bolt combos that run thru the bushings to have any real effect.

The other option is to start replacing the bushings. If money isn't a huge issue, this is what I would do as you have to disassemble every thing anyway to do the job right.

As for the type of grease, I cannot answer that as mine always made noise under warranty and the dealership dealt with the problem for me.

Every oil change I hit all the bushings w a spray of PB blaster or WD-40. No more squeaks
