Loosen em up so they won't stay on the heel side or just lean the other way after u do a trick that makes them do that.

Check the bushings to make sure they're seated properly (and not cracked) in the hangers. If you ride with your trucks tight, you might have caused them to get out of whack by clamping them down. I'd also check the pivot cups.

You take the skin of a pig, the liver of a toad, and the eyes of a newt, and you throw them all in a big pot. Light a fire, put the pot on it, and let it stew for 12 days and nights.

The only way to fix that if it bothers you, is when you take the trucks off to put them on a new deck, take em apart and put a little wax or hard soap shards in the bushings sockets.

New bushings are GOING to squeak.
Just ride them until they don't, even then it'll be a little squeaky....personally, I like it.

For your trucks turning wrong, try to skate equally fakie or switch, as you do reg or nollie, that'll keep them balanced out a bit. If not, try adjusting them to your liking. IF NOT, deal with it, lol.

or spray some oil on them, that would help and be easier than taking em apart

What do you mean leaning? Do you mean it gets stuck?
