Default Squeaky B-pillars

My B-pillars - the pillars behind the front doors - have started squeaking like crazy. When I brake, they both squeak as the car pitches forward... and then they squeak again as the car levels off.

Do I need to use WD-40, silicone spray...?

Had your car up on stands recently? Mine did that for a while after I had the front on stands for a couple days. It settled out.

Yeah, actually a few weeks ago I had the front up on stands for a couple of days. The rail where you're supposed to jack the car up started to bend as I was jacking it up - I quickly slipped in another jack for support. I didn't think too much of it at the time. Hope I didn't break something major. My poor Bonnie is getting old

I think you'll be fine, just give it a bit of time as Jwikoff says

A bit o silicone spray should help in the mean time.

I'd pull the trim off, and wipe a light coat of silicone from a rag. Don't spray. Wipe it on the egdes of the trim, and the mating inside surface of the pillar.
