I believe the favorite technique is to "lube everything" but my personal suspicion has always been the springs on the struts or perhaps the sway bar attachments. I'm always on my way somewhere when it occurs and by that season (< 15F) it's always way too cold to do "optional" work so I usually just tolerate the first scrunch when I hit the local railroad tracks at .5 miles then it's gone in another mile.
