How to get the front bump stops to stay up?

Morning all,

I had the OME HD lift installed back in December. Within the past month I had noticed a squeak developing. I found the culprit to be the front bump stops. They are continually working themselves down and then begin to squeak. They are pretty hard to push back up into the cup but won't stay there. What are people doing to get them to stay? Do I need to lubricate the strut shaft to make it more slippery?

I bet a shot of spray lube onto the shaft then work em up and down a bit and it wont matter where they are, they will just stay quiet... that or I am sure you could do like an epoxy, get a little on the top of it and smash it up into the top strut mount... the spray lube is probably the easiest and cheapest try though.
