The leaf spring bushing mounts on my truck are squeaking and is making me crazy, I have tried ..
WD40 , PB Blaster, Mystery oil and a few others too, the squeak will go away for a few days but always comes back.
has anyone found a better solution for this issue.

On my F250, there are plastic bushings between the leafs. 99% of the time a squeak comes from there. When the squeak starts, typically dirt and water have gotten in between the plastic and metal or the bushing has deteriorated. Typically they look like flat round plastic washers between the leafs and at the and are located at the end of the leafs

Tried it.. no good.
My truck has no side washers, it is a hard rubber bushing inside the leaf spring with another steel sleeve inside the rubber and the bolt through the sleeve

I have never heard of that, mine is as quiet as can be. Have you thought about taking the bolts totally out and cleaning everything up? Maybe you have some rust build up. Then put back with a good quality grease.
