Chuck, a few years ago I did a survey on towertalk, the summary of which 
is, I think, still available on KA9FOX's web page.  The bottom line was 
that nobody had very much trouble with any of them, and many, many people 
were using Ameritron's RCS-8V and RCS-4.  I think the bottom line is that 
you can't hear a non-squeaking wheel, so you might give the squeaky ones 
undue weight.
