Is it my equalizer hitch?
First, never lube all the joints on an Equalizer hitch, the metal on metal is what gives you the sway control.
Grease the joints in the hitch head only.
To reduce the noise, which by the way tells you it is working correctly, you can do two things, add Teflon pads to the L brackets, make sure the sway bars are parallel with the trailer frame when installed (this is the one that I see wrong the most and the angle creates a lot on noise).
FYI, Frequently Asked Questions
Ours always made a little noise even with the pads and correct alignment.
