Could be wrong but from what I've been reading, it's not likely to be your springs but bad bushings, ball joint, or tie rods.

It could also be the rubber isolator pads that go on the top and bottom of the springs.

Ditto, especially in the rear. Sometimes they are left out, when that happens they rub and squeak like crazy.

The way yoy make it sound.....you put lowering springs on your vehicles, correct?
or am I misunderstanding?

assuming you have put lowering springs on the vehicles.....

when you put the springs in did you get some shocks/struts to go with the springs or just used the old ones?

I want to say struts/shocks that are/were made for oem springs and have gone out.

it is entirely possible that its some bushing/rubber piece that has worn down enough to cause something to rub thus squeak though.

The only time I hear them is going up the curb sort of thing going into the drive way, or a speedbump, other than that, they are quiet

It sounds like sway bar bushings to me. Did you use plenty of grease when you put the Eibach sway bars?
