Rear Shock Creeky/Squeky

I have a full suspension MTB rocky mountain element 50
i have the Fox Shocks

my rear shock makes this creeky noise now every time it moves. Non stop. I dont know what to do to make it stop, any suggestions.

Every bump i go over all i hear is creeks and squeaks.

Suggestions to solve this?

Odds it's just the wiper seals. They make stanchion lubes, aka judy butter or whatever for this. Even though it's a rear shock the principle of a sliding seal on a tube is the same. It could also be at the swing arm pivot, so you might do a bit of listening as a friend flexes your frame before dealing with it.
