squeaky highback on right binding?

Just put together my Rome Agent with my 390's, noticed the right highback is kinda stiff and squeaky when trying to put it down..any solutions? I kinda tried to untighten them thinking that was the prob but I was afraid I'd warp the screws.

a little wd40 or bike chain oil? just a dot on the threads (only if the nut is a self locking nut, otherwise oil will probably cause it to come loose on your way down the face)

One drop of household (i.e. 3-in-1, not WD40) oil.

the benefit of wd40 is it helps shield against rusts to your fasteners. Many other lubricating agents actual deteriorate the "weather proofing" surfaces to your hardware and once they dry up or wear away, your metal is left exposed to the elements. I would suggest wd40 or a sport grade oil made for outdoor equipment since it was engineered for purposes like these.
