    Concerning the leaf springs, I assume you have a front bushing squeak. With the rear of the car properly/safely supported off the ground by the sub-frame and the differential lightly supported on a floor jack, remove the front bushing bolts one at a time and lube the bolt with grease then re-install the bolt. No more squeak!
