Guys.....since i "fixed" it started again, but this time i definately found the issue. The sqeaking was happening at the axl ends. Exactly what it was, the spacer or what i don't know. but it was doing it constantly and i sopped at a hardware store monday and got some WD40. Shot it in there on both sides and not a peep since. So next time i remove the wheel for a tire i will grease it all real good. i didn't use the WD40 as a fix, only as a way to see if that was it, but i didn't expect it to last. But after riding to work all week the WD40 is still doing it's job even tho it's not really a lubricant. Anyways, grease those axls and all up good whenever you remove your wheels ! Problem with the wheel removal i described above is i was having such a hard time getting the wheel back on that most of the grease came off as i was struggling with it, and after a while i stopped re-greasing it after each try. So by the time i got it back on some parts were pretty void of grease. My hands, clothes and everything else wasn't tho !
