Squeaky Suspension

What does everyone use to hit those leaf springs on your TT to eliminate some squeak going down the road?

Some of the squeak might be coming from the shackles. We replaced ours with heavier shackles, bronze bushings, and wet bolts.

^^ This. Once I replaced the shackles and bushings the squeaking went away.

I didn't notice squeaking when I was pulling the trailer but while camping in Grand junction we had a bad wind storm and the trailer was kind of rocking a little bit and it was really squeaking while inside.

Could that have been the stabilizers making noise?

If you didn't hear it towing it could gave either not been load enough to hear or not making any noise. In my thinking with the stabalizers properly set the stabilizer would have to move before the suspension does. I'm in the habit of having the window down and radio off when pulling into or out of the storage lot and the campground. I know the sounds that my hitch makes so I listen intently for any "new or different" sounds. No new sounds makes me more confident that all is working properly. That said this doesn't preclude visual and mechanical inspections.
