is it possible to lub the suspensions???

Can I lubricate the suspensions/shocks with a spray lubricant?

Is this safe to do or a big no no?

In freezing tempertures, the suspension sqeaks loud

What are you going to LUBE? you can lube some of the sway bar bushings if you want...not much more to lube these days. Its not like my old 1967 MGB or my dad's 1959 XK150 Jaguar.

so why is it when its cold (freezing) outside that my suspensions creak...making a loud rattle/squeak sound going over small bumps?

I figure if it only happens when is cold...maybe lubricate can help

Not sure what suspension setup you're running but rubber bushings tend to become more rigid in colder temperatures which causes the creaking your experiencing, really not much you can do.
