Edge / Lo Pro Edge are squeaky

I have a couple RGs that are making a squeaking sound when I turn the bar in the bridge's socket. Edge and Lo Pro. How do I make this go away? Some simple oil somewhere?

Thanks!

A little dab of grease in the detent on the bar, it's the spring squeaking as it turns. Try not to get it anywhere inside the holder if you want the bar to stay in place.

Thanks Rich. Out of curiosity, should a specific amount of the spring be sticking into the socket? When I got the 3120, the spring was out so the trem arm wasn't popping in, so when I took the bridge off I really stuck the spring in as much as I could (and tightened in place) so the arm could pop in firmly. Is it possible to have it in "too much"?

For the last 5 years they've had a bug where the hole got smaller and the spring jammed on the edge and wouldn't catch the detent much if any, now cured. All you did by deep setting it is increase it's pressure a little. It may or may not be causing the squeak.
