It could be squeaking for any number of reasons (and it could be coming from a different place than you think - I hate when that happens). But you can also try White Lithium Grease, which is specifically designed for metal-to-metal contact.

It depends does is squeak when you lean back? sit down? spin around? It could be coming from a number of different areas.

You must first figure out what is squeaking, then fix the problem, you will need some grease and a grease gun of some sort. apply grease to the squeaking are and viola squeak gone.

if you dont have grease, Vaseline works great too

I once used vegetable oil to get rid of squeaking in my chair. It's still working

Break-Free is a fantastic lubricant. Also motorcycle chain lube works well for squeaky things too. I've used both on my truck's clutch pedal when it starts squeaking and they both work great.

But, like the others said, figure out where it's squeaking from. It's also possible that a weld has broken and two formerly attached pieces are rubbing against each other.

Yea first find out what exactly i causing the noise, it could even be a loose bolt, then just put some grease in that area and WALLA fixed.

This works everytime.
Step 1: fill bathtub with oil. note: doesn't realy matter what kind of oil.
Step 2: throw chair in bathtub roll it around until completely saturated.
Step 3: take chair out of bathtub.
Step 4: sit on chair, no squeaks

repeat as often as necessary

White lithium grease is the bomb. It won't drip, and takes friggin FOREVER to wear out, plus it's good for basically anything that needs lubing and that isn't organic/bodily.
