Taper Pins

The taper pins may appear to be in all the way, however if  they are not seated properly and need to be set with a brass mallet.   Hammer them in as hard as you can and the "squeak" continues, you need to ream the holes and reseat the tapered pins, possibly with oversized ones if required. Do not sail the boat with this problem. It will continue to get worse until it becomes a major problem.
