Freedom top is squeaking......

After 8 months of using the soft top, I decided to put my freedom top on my Jk and there is a squeaking sound by my left ear when I'm driving. I know its coming from the drivers side panel. I removed the modular panel and adjusted it but its still squeaking. Last year when I bought the jeep the hard top on the jeep it was silent. I read in another post that someone else had the same problem. Some of you recommended lube on the seal. What lube do you recommend as I dont want to damage the rubber.

I don't know about lube or the other post but when I was getting that kind of noise I just loosened the "L" latch over my head a little. Stopped the squeaking. I had the latch turned too tight. Hope this helps.
