    GC suspension squeaks

    I have a GC suspension on my 1998 M3 sedan for couple of years now. From the get go when I turn the wheels the rotating of the springs gives me a creaking noise. I have talked to the guy at GC and the only suggestion was greasing the tops of the springs where they touch the metal plate. That works for about a day or so. All other suspension components are less than a year old so no worn out bushings or exotic materials here that are causing the noise.

    Question: Has anyone used their hybrid plates? And if do you still get this noise.

    Also dont reply that your setup doesnt squeak that will not help me solve this problem. Im pretty fed up with this and very close to pulling the entire system off and putting it on ebay. This car is a everyday driver on mountain roads. I love the ride but the noise is pretty ridiculous.

    Update

    I purchased new hybrid top spring pads and the camber plates rebuilt with new bearings. The ride is very quiet and no creaking noises or annoying sounds anymore. The camber plates were 4 years old with around 50k of hard driving. Not sure how worn they were but the combination has made me love the car even more.
