Yes lube will make a difference, specifically the viscosity.

Chains will make different sounds on different cogs just due to the nature of link size and rotational circumference.

I think this is just a matter of the OP never having it in the small/small until it was put there to take off the wheel. What we just found out is his chain is too long.

If a fitter told you that you need a 56cm frame, a 51cm frame will be too small for you. It's not just about how high the seat tube is. Smaller frames have less reach and you will be cramped.
