    I believe that H&R was having a problem with this, are yours H&R?  It is 
because of the progressive rate, for some reason the collapsed coils creak 
against each other.  For a while they were putting a rubber sleeve over those 
coils to prevent the squeaking...I have heard that other brands dont make 
this noise.  Try calling the Bennetts, I know they have dealt with this 
problem already  (www.2bennett.com)
