Rear suspension loud squeak please help

Hey guys,
My 2012 GT has developed a significant squeak any time I go over the slightest bump or crack in the road. Doesn't help even if I slow down. My question is what do you guys think this is? Is it the rear bushings? Just would like some direction when I take it in to the dealer so they don't have to take forever looking at it. Was thinking about getting the ford racing suspension set up from CJ pony parts or american muscle, the complete Ford Racing Handling Pack. Would this fix the problem? This is however very expensive, would just new bushings fix the problem? Or is it something else, I know no one can diagnose it without seeing/hearing it but ideas would be great! Thanks everyone in advance!

Most likely its the rear sway bar bushing links and maybe the rear sway bar mounts . This is common on some of these cars up front .

Mine did it and I loosened the rear control arms and retorqued them twice and it went away. I sure hope it doesn't come back after I install my panhard bar.

Simply jack the rear end of the vehicle if you cannot fit under it the way it is. Put the axle stands under the axle housing. Get a friend to jounce and rebound the suspension. If the noise is happening that often and that easily it should be simple to pinpoint where it is coming from with your head under it.

This way there is no guessing games.

Although when you play guessing games this gives you the oppourtunity to replace unneeded suspension parts and the wife believes your just trying to fix something that is broken....

Maybe use my suggestion, find out where its coming from, fix that. Tell the wife you need to tub out the trunk and put all adjustable suspension components in. Maybe some mickey thompson drag radials will also assist in the squeak?? And when the squeak is gone after all that she will believe your a hero.... Win win??
