My lilacs started browning out a month ago. They have been watered. Don't see any bugs. Scared they're dying!

This does not appear to be disease or insect related, but environmental stress. With almost 50 days of temperatures above 90 degrees with very little rain leaves will turn brown. The watering you did will help the roots survive the winter. the plant should be fine next season.
