Squeaky noise over bumps?

Any of you guys get a squeaky sound when going over bumps on local roads? At first I thought it was my stock suspension going, but after I switched them I still get it. I think it might be my bushings/bump stop or something of the sort...anybody else have this problem and ever get it resolved?

Anyone confirm that it's sway bar bushings or have had it replaced? I'm scared they'll screw me on my aftermarket coils. The above thread says they're having a scraping noise, mine is more of a squeak like jumping on an old mattress

Yes they replaced the swaybar bushing on mine and it fixed the issue. The noise sounds like a mudflap scraping the ground or like you said squeaky mattress springs

my car squeeked going over rough roads, small potholes etc. I brought it in, which is still in the shop, and they couldnt figure it out. They replaced my muffler, but that didnt fix the problem...now they are gonna check the breaks...but its on all four wheels..very odd.

They replaced my front swaybar bushings, and the noise is gone. It was done under the 4 year warranty.
