Or the chassis lubed. Worn out spring seats, bushings.... Could be anything suspension related. While the car is sitting, I'd push down on the car to see if you can duplicate the sound while someone listens under it. Try to pinpoint exactly where it's coming from.

What part of the car is the noise coming from? The front ? The rear? Right? Left?

Take it to a good suspension shop and a fistful of dollars I guess if you're not sure about what needs to be fixed.

Can't really tell where the squeak is coming from over the internet.

Depending on the miles and location of the "squeak" it could be a myriad of things. Worn out shocks, bad spring perches, worn out control arms/bushings front and rear, swaybar endlinks, torque arm mount, panhard bar, T-tops squeaking, door/hatch gaskets, etc. etc.

8x's out of 10 you usually need to shoot a little WD-40 on the spring isolators...top of the springs on all four corners..usually they get dry and chaff with dirt...

WD-40 temp fix, will wash, when it rains, If you want long lasting results, either At-205 reseal can soak in, its a palimer clear liquid that rejuvenates Rubber bushings, works best, get it on Amazon, good stuff, or some of the white lithium grease works as well.
