2019 XP 1000 suspension squeak?

Been loving my new RZR so far however one thing I have noticed is there aren’t many grease fittings on suspension components. My suspension is beginning to squeak really bad which isn't abnormal to me as I usually run trails/water and mud. However I clean it off after every big run but I’d love to know what you guys do to decrease the amount of squeaking. Is WD40 recommended? Or something like white lithium grease in an aerosol can because as stated, there aren’t many grease fittings at all. Thanks guys.

Use good waterproof grease on the zerk points... and Tri Flow on all other points ...it is clean and wont attract a lot of dirt if you let it dry for a bit
The guys at FOX suspension recommend it ....it is Teflon based and penetrates well in Heim joints and other tight tolerance areas

Do not use petroleum based products as it will attract dirt and cause premature wear. After pressure washing the shock bushings and all suspension components thoroughly I use dry silicon spray lube on all the moveable parts that no not have grease fittings. This will prevent squeaks not attract dirt.

The spherical balls on the ends of the shocks will squeak. I took mine apart and used a little anti seize on them. They are sealed with an O ring on each side so just spraying will probably not help.

Shock eyes....# 1 squeak point! Remove and lube....should last 1-2 years. I use a white lithium grease but I'm sure that's not forum correct! 😉
