polyurethane bushings...?

so, i've had poly bushings for a good 5 months now, and I am really starting to get fed up with the squeak. i know they are going to squeak, but is there ANYTHING I can do to keep it down?

How about some good marine grease, both in the steel insert in the bushing, and where the outer bushing mount to the frame.
