I had the samething happen on my 95 850 when we did the suspesion with bilsteins and TME's back in 2000 it eventually will go away just the new stiffness.

Check your spring mounts, sway bar links, everything. Make sure everything is tight and solid.

when my car did that it was because the spring seats were ruined. After one year running TC's.

I just fixed this problem on my 850 yesterday. and I use fix very loosely.what I did to stop the squeeking is spray the top of the suspension in the engine with a heavy duty lube. squeek is gone. but now I can hear the ticking in my engine..... you win some you loose some! now if they they had a can to fix that! but do not take this as a perminant fix. it is mostly likely your spring seats. and should be replaced. it helps on the ears though.
