squeaky lift

I have a 2013 4door Sahara and recently put a 2.5" skyjacker suspension lift on it. I still only have the 265 r17 tires on it with 17 dick cepek torque rims on it..getting new tires soon as these wear down...the squeak is pretty noticeable especially when your going slow and over bumps also if I'm parked and turn my steering wheel side to side it squeaks...any ideas what's causing this...the guy I had put the lift on knows what he's doing. The thing rides pretty smooth as smooth as a lifted jeep can ride I guess...just annoying squeaking...

See if the squeak is coming from the shocks if you can. He might have forgotten to lube the bushings. I lifted an f350 years ago and forgot to lube the duel stabilizers I put on. Squeaked like hell when I turned the wheel.

Might want to make sure all the bolts were torqued when the jeep was on the ground. Some lifts take some road time to finally settle in. Nice looking jeep.

Not to revive a dead thread but were supposed to lube our shock bushings?Lol i just threw them on and went as tight as i could with the socket. Which isnt crazy tight as i was in a weird position.
