Another data point: No squeak with my 70-200 VR1. The zoom barrel is a little sticky sometimes. Estimated cost for a complete clean from that mid west repair shop, $300 plus shipping, to which, I will live with it as long as the pictures come out clean.

If you ever come to Kolkata, India, let me know I know a person, who repairs lenses. One of my friends had same kind of problem and that repair guy cleaned his lens (A 80-200 2.8 AF-D) for 1500 RupeesĀ (equivalent to about 25 dollars), and his lens is good as new.
