    The rubber bushings on the front stabilizer bar are probably getting hard and dry.Try some silicone spray lubricant on them.Also spray the mounting points on the shock absorbers and transverse spring.Do the same for the rear stabilizer,spring,and shocks too.It could also be a noisy shock,but try the spray first.

    i actually just had this problem start last week. I went and got some new wheels and tires put on, and ever since its been jacked up from that, my supension has been squeaking over speed bumbs, dips, etc. Have you raised your car lately?

    I sprayed the suspension bushings with silicone which helped.

    Enjoy your quiet ride! Spray them again in a couple of months to keep the rubber bushings soft.
