I believe the squeak you are refering to is coming from the windows on the rubber gasket seal of the top. What I do on my 99 Sebring JXI is with the top up and the doors open, spray all rubber sealing with a dry silicon lubricant. Even spraying the rubber seals around the door jams and up along & across the windsheild makes a noticeble difference. I use this method on the sealing material around my rear sliding window on my Ram as well. The noise is completely eliminated for a couple months. You may have to apply more frequently depending upon how often and/or thoroughly you wash your car.
